This is the email I got from jezzer! I suppose lots of you got one? He emailed me to ask my OPINION on something IMPORTANT! I am so chuffed. This is (on the way to) what modern democracy should be about!
Obvs I junked it tho lol
On Thursday David Cameron set out his case in the House of Commons for a UK bombing campaign in Syria.
We have all been horrified by the despicable attacks in Paris and are determined to see ISIS defeated.
The issue now is whether what the Prime Minister is proposing strengthens, or undermines, our national security.
I put a series of questions in response to the Prime Minister's statement, raising concerns about his case that are on the minds of many in the country. You can read my response here.
There could not be a more important matter than whether British forces are sent to war.
As early as next week, MPs could be asked to vote on extending UK bombing to Syria.
I do not believe that the Prime Minister made a convincing case that British air strikes on Syria would strengthen our national security or reduce the threat from ISIS.
When I was elected I said I wanted Labour to become a more inclusive and democratic party.
So I am writing to consult you on what you think Britain should do. Should Parliament vote to authorise the bombing of Syria?
Let me know your views, if you are able to, by the start of next week: http://www.labour.org.uk/page/s/syria-consultation
