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

I fear that Corbyn may not resign as Dr Alf surmises he might. He will not climb down and sadly the man, much as it pains me to say it, has a point.

Whilst I favour bombing ISIS, what the Prime Minister proposes is not going to deal with the problem because already with the excessive amount of advanced warning we have given them ISIS commanders have already decamped to Mosul and elsewhere whilst the rank and file beheaders and jihadists have copied the North Vietnamese and built a maze of electrified tunnels under Raqua in which they can ride out the bombing. Civilians and those under ISIS’s tutelage remain on the surface, hostages to their Orc-like masters.

Doing what David Cameron suggests will not deal effectively with ISIS and it leaves their financiers and the duplicitous President Erdogan and his familyn free to promote more mayhem, with intermediaries potenially profiteering.

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?
