The UK should be more proactive about imposing sanctions on banks and countries suspected of funding or supporting the militant group Isis, the leader of the Labour party has said.
Jeremy Corbyn told David Cameron to push for an economic crackdown with the rest of the European Union, claiming the terror group was being provided with “vital infrastructure”.
“Surely a crucial way to help defeat Isil is to cut off its funding, its supply of arms, and its trade,” he said at Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons on Wednesday.

Now then that’s the ticket. International Sanctions freeze out their funds that should make Isis reckless enough to piss off moderate Islamic nations, perhaps with a bit of luck turn on those sitting on the fence. Galvanise the UN into action.
We can start with Toyota.
What has Toyota done to support terrorism?
I wholeheartedly agree with JC well said!!
Seems like a common sense plan, probably why the Cons have not done anything similar. Cons would not like upsetting their banking mates who have a pretty crap past record in hiding the Hoorays tax avoidance cash and laundering dirty money etc.
Should’ve been done right from the start!
