Corbyn: UK must reconsider air strikes against Isis in Iraq

Considering the disarray into which David Cameron’s policy on air strikes has fallen, even the most hardline right-winger should accept that Mr Corbyn has a point – or at least, they should if they ever bother to thin about it.

Parliament should “look again” at the decision to launch air strikes on the Isis militant group in Iraq, the leader of the Labour party has said.

Jeremy Corbyn said the policy, which was first launched in September 2014, had not been effective at resolving the conflict.

Mr Corbyn, who also opposes extending the airstrikes to Syria, called for a political solution to fighting the Isis militant group that involved regional powers in the Middle East.
