Blow for David Cameron as British government loses vote on Syria action

Updated: 22:44, Thursday, 29 August 2013

The British government has lost a vote on a motion to support military intervention in Syria.

The motion was defeated by 285 to 272 votes in major blow to Prime Minister David Cameron.

Mr Cameron said it was clear that parliament “does not want to see British military action” in Syria after the Government was defeated on the issue.

He said: “I get that, and the Government will act accordingly.”

The House of Commons had spent the day debating the motion, which said military action could not be sanctioned until after weapons inspectors have reported to the United Nations Security Council.

Earlier, Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, who led opposition among Conservative backbenchers, said the situation on the ground may be evolving.

Mr Bridgen told RTÉ News that information emerging from the UN team may have helped stall military efforts, saying he suspected the attack may have even been an accident.

The UN team will not be able to confirm this publicly, as they are merely reporting on whether an attack did take place or not.

    This is an historic political crisis. All out on the demonstration on Saturday, London 12 noon Embankment.

    If you listen to Cameron’s final words tonight it indicates a potential catastrophe for British foreign policy in not being able to go along with a US military action.

    That is not set. We must bend every effort to making that a reality. The beneficiaries will not be only in our own country but on every continent, for it is on every continent that the British imperial forces have wrought havoc over the decades.

    This is a profound moment of political crisis for the British government and state.

    There can be no let up. Everyone – and we were tens of thousands – who organised against the wars of the last decade should take heart and renew our activism as it was before.

    We can win such an enormous strategic gain now. There is no room for unnecessary division or rancour.

    If Washington is left alone – then I have little doubt that they will reap the storm.
