Here are the latest updates:
- PM lambasted for calling opponents ‘terrorist sympathisers’
- …and he repeatedly refused to apologise for ‘desperate slur’
- Jeremy Corbyn said the PM had ‘demeaned his office’
- Tory defence chair Julian Lewis [a Conservative opponent of Cameron’s warmongering]: ‘Instead of dodgy dossiers, we now have bogus battalions‘
According to an Independent online poll, 82% of respondents oppose bombing Syria.
