Jeremy Corbyn faces humiliation as more than 100 Labour MPs plan to defy leader over Syria air strikes – Telegraph

The right-wing Telegraph leads with a powerful attack on Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn. The article reports that around half of Labour MPs will next week support David Cameron‘s plans to bomb Isil as Jeremy Corbyn faces the biggest crisis of his leadership.

With France appealing to Labour MPs for support against ISIS, Corbyn’s position is shameful. It’s fine for Corbyn to have his hard-left views but as a political leader he must put national defense and foreign policy first. Otherwise, the honorable thing is for Corbyn to resign or be removed by his political adversaries.

Surely, it’s nonesense for the UK’s unions to dictate defense policy?

This is an important editorial article where China points the finger at the US.

In the last week, the US mainstream media have devoted vast resources to the Syrian immigration crisis, comparing one European country to another. There is no mention of failed US foreign policy under Obama precipitating the crisis.

Why doesn’t the US match Europe or indeed take a greater share of Syrian refugees – after all America is bigger and has greater resources?
