Labour MP Chris Williamson appeared last night on Channel 4 News to talk about Theresa May’s decision to pursue military action in Syria without giving MPs a vote.
Presenter Cathy Newman appeared more interested in trying to get a particular soundbite, trying to manoeuvre Williamson into saying fo otage of children in a Douma hospital was faked, but Williamson didn’t fall for it.
Instead, he laid out the clear hypocrisy of May’s eagerness to drop bombs when she has refused to take more Syrian refugees – which would be a genuine humanitarian gesture – and her willingness to accept ‘social media posts and hearsay’ as enough evidence to put our armed forces in harm’s way without a debate in Parliament.
