May defends joint airstrikes against Syria

UK labour market - Office for National Statistics

Comparisons are being drawn between the Syrian airstrikes and the beginning of the Iraq War.

British Prime Minister Theresa May told restive lawmakers Monday that military airstrikes on Syria were right both legally and morally, and she accused Syria and its ally Russian Federation of attempting to cover up evidence of a deadly chemical weapons attack.

Hayward also runs a blog in which he has published articles that claim the attacks are routinely staged by the opposition supported by the west.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson promised MPs would have "abundant time" to have their say.

"If we could get to a process in the United Nations where you get to a ceasefire, you get to a political solution, you then may well get to a situation where there could be a United Nations force established to enforce that ceasefire", he told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show on Sunday.

"Whether you think the government will negotiate a good deal or bad deal, Brexit is definitely a big deal", Open Britain's Executive Director James McGrory said in a statement.

May has weathered months of doubt over her leadership due to rows over Brexit and an ill-judged decision to call an early election when her Conservative Party lost its parliamentary majority.

Mr Corbyn, who has warned of an escalation in a "proxy war" between the U.S. and Russian Federation, said he would only consider backing intervention in Syria with the support of the United Nations. But the after-the-fact debate - without a binding vote - did not satisfy angry opposition lawmakers.

David Lammy, a lawmaker with the opposition Labour Party, demanded answers from the government Monday, calling it "a day of national shame".

May faced down her domestic critics as France's premier defended the "proportionate" response to the use of chemical weapons.

May said she will speak to parliament after it re-convenes from its spring break about the military action and that she was "confident" that the strikes were successful.

They were given indefinite leave to remain, a situation which changed with a 1971 law but many who failed to get their papers in order are now being treated as undocumented or illegal migrants.

16 de abril de 2018, 15:15Moscow, Apr 16 (Prensa Latina) Russia accused the United Kingdom of being directly responsible for a set-up in the Syrian city of Duma to present it as a chemical attack by the government " s army. He said Assad had moved equipment away from the sites that were hit because there was sufficient prior warning.

"The Syrian regime has an abhorrent record of using chemical weapons against its own people", said Peter Wilson, adding that the use of chemical weapons "has become an all-too-regular weapon of war in the Syrian conflict".

"We have not done this because President Trump asked us to, we have done it because we believed it was the right thing to do, and we are not alone", May said to cheers. Pro-Brexit campaigners also gathered outside. Other parties are also said to be considering submitting applications.

If a debate goes ahead it will happen on Tuesday afternoon, and Julian Smith, the Tory Chief Whip, has issued a three-line whip to Conservative MPs in case a vote goes ahead.

May, who has regained confidence after winning support for her tough stance on Syria and Russian Federation, will make a statement to parliament on her decision to join the United States and France in Saturday's strikes in retaliation for a suspected gas attack. The three allies circulated a joint draft resolution at the Security Council.
