MAY FACES THE COMMONS: Theresa May defends Allied strikes on Syrian regime in lengthy address to Parliament

PRIME Minister Theresa May addressed Parliament to defend her Government’s decision to strike Bashar Al-Assad’s Syrian regime along with the United States and France on Saturday. 

She addressed the House of Commons chamber for over three hours and took 140 questions by MPs from all parties.

May said she had no doubt the “Syrian regime” was behind the gas attack which she called a “stain on humanity” and she told MPs she had acted in the national interest.

The Prime Minister also hit back at claims by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who suggested she had bombed Syria on the “whims of the US President.”

Corbyn said: “The Prime Minister is accountable to this Parliament, not to the whims of the US President,” said Jeremy Corbyn, to which Theresa May rolled her eyes and shook her head.

She added: “We have not done this because President Trump asked us to, we have done it because we believed it was the right thing to do, and we are not alone,”  to cheers from Tory MPs.

She defended her decisions and said, “It is my responsibility as Prime Minister to make these decisions and I will make them.”

“I’m absolutely clear that it is parliament’s responsibility to hold me to account for such decisions and parliament will do so.” she said.

May has received overwhelming support from the Tory Party for acting decisively against the Syrian regime without asking for permission from the Commons.

Her main critics are Far-Left Corbynistas and those on the Far-Right of British Politics.

When the PM was asked if she would strike Syria again she said: “Nobody should be in any doubt of our resolve to ensure that we cannot see a situation where the use of chemical weapons is normalised.”
