Did Mrs May try to manipulate Parliament by sharing Syria intelligence with those who support airstrikes?

Theresa May: A fraud?

Theresa May has been accused of a grave abuse of her position, after it was claimed that her national security adviser gave Labour MPs intelligence and security briefings on Syria, on the basis of their support for air strikes.

If the allegation is true, it means that people who were not cleared to receive this information were provided with it – implying a possible breach of the UK’s national security.

The allegation has been made by Scottish Nationalist Party MP Stewart McDonald:

“Intelligence and security briefings on Syria have been used by the Government to manipulate Labour MPs, the Commons has heard.

“The SNP’s Stewart McDonald (Glasgow South) claimed he was informed by several sources that the Government has been “selectively offering” briefings by the Prime Minister’s national security adviser.

“He added they appear to have been offered to Labour MPs who are “sympathetic” to the Government’s position.

“Mr McDonald, raising a point of order in the House of Commons, said: “It’s been brought to my attention by several sources that the Government has been selectively offering intelligence and security briefings by the Prime Minister’s national security adviser on the current situation in Syria and the UK military response to it.

“”These briefings appear to have been offered to members of the Labour opposition not on the basis of privy counsellor status but on the basis of those Opposition members who are sympathetic to the Government’s position.

“”That leads to concerns that the Government is using intelligence briefings to manipulate Parliament and to bolster its own case for its behaviour on the Opposition benches – not on security terms, but on politics.””

Mr McDonald repeated his claim on Twitter:

He received a predictable reaction:

But Commons Speaker John Bercow merely told the MP that it was for the government to decide with whom it shares intelligence material.

The corruption implicit in the allegation cannot be overlooked, though – especially as it may be placed alongside other recent Tory tactics.

For example:

Then there’s the response to people like Mr McDonald, who dare to question the narrative:

Such a response is no doubt on its way to former First Sea Lord, Lord West (if it hasn’t reached him already), after he told BBC News he does not believe the claim that Syrian President Bashar al Assad ordered the alleged chemical weapons attack on Douma that triggered Mrs May’s decision to take part in air strikes on alleged (again) chemical weapons installations.

We have already heard that these alleged installations were nothing of the sort, and that the evidence from Douma was of people being treated for dust inhalation rather than a chemical weapons attack. Now this:

He went on to say he would have advised Assad’s opponents to stage a chemical attack – which is very nearly what Russia warned was planned, days before the alleged attack in Douma (although the Russians said a fake attack was to take place):

And he downplayed the validity of the reports from Douma which were used to justify the air strikes:

And there is one more inconsistency – raised via another current news story. That is Theresa May’s utter failure of compassion for human beings of foreign origin (or indeed, UK residents).

The Windrush scandal has shown that Mrs May does not care about the suffering of other human beings; in fact, she does everything she can to cause it.

So I tend to agree with Tom, below:

If you agree as well, then it seems Mrs May has been trying to deceive the citizens of the United Kingdom with a fraud so huge that, if proved, she should be taken out of Parliament and thrown in the deepest, darkest prison cell we have – permanently.

So let’s get on with proving it.

    I think the only way ‘the International Gurning Champion and her cabinet of clowns’ are ever likely to ‘reshape’ the Middle East is by resigning en-masse and making one last memorable trip to that area together with their camp followers. Then, as collective penance for their interminable list of crimes against humanity and morality they can hurl themselves ‘as-one’ (without chutes of course) from a suitable, slow moving transport circling around 18000′. Only this way can they ever hope to make a big ‘impact’ and leave a lasting ‘impression’! The MSM would have a ‘field’ day!!!
