Scilly’s MP Against Syria Military Intervention

Scilly’s MP, Andrew George

Scilly’s MP will be satisfied with the decision by Parliament to vote against military intervention in Syria, following the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime.

In a statement Andrew George said the “almost certainty” that Assad’s people used chemical weapons to kill hundreds and injure thousands is not sufficient to persuade him that the UK should engage in or support military strikes in Syria.

The islands’ MP says the UK should “bomb them with diplomacy, inspectors, humanitarian aid, shelter and support,” but says recent history should have taught us that military engagement “merely changes the problem, it doesn’t resolve it.”
