Labour MPs tweet opposition to Syria strikes without vote

Deprived of a vote in parliament, Labour MPs have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts on the Prime Minister’s decision to launch air strikes in Syria without first consulting the Commons.

In the early hours of the morning, the UK with the US and France fired 105 naval and air cruise missiles against Syria chemical weapons targets.

Writing to Theresa May today, Jeremy Corbyn described the raids as “legally questionable”.
