The wrong decision – Syria

Sadly, wrongly, but unsurprisingly, our MPs did not listen to their constituents:

We, the undersigned, believe that to defeat ISIS a comprehensive political solution must come first. All efforts should focus on achieving this before we consider joining a military offensive against an enemy that has become adept at avoiding air strikes. It is not obvious the bombing already carried out by our allies has been successful, as Islamic State has grown in capability, number and territory despite the air campaign.
With many nations and the Assad regime carrying out different bombing campaigns, civilians are increasingly bearing the brunt of these bombs. Adding British bombs will only add to the suffering of those trapped in the middle of one of the bloodiest civil wars the world has ever seen. It can only lead to an increase in the number of people fleeing the terror on boats across the Mediterranean and make the threat of terrorist attacks in response on the UK more likely.In light of this we urge James Berry MP, Dr Tania Mathias MP and Zac Goldsmith MP to vote against the Government’s motion for the UK to join military action in Syria tonight.
