Shock horror! Politician sticks to his beliefs instead of playing to the gallery. It's sad that it seems like some freakish act of rebellion by a maverick.

I despair of the partisan reporting of our media. The BBC has been appalling in my opinion, on this issue this morning.

We spend years moaning that our politicians are cynical opportunists who don’t stand for anything. Then along comes an opposition leader who has principles — and appears to stick by them even when it makes him unpopular — and he is dismissed as a joke.
In the wake of the attacks in Paris, he declared that Britain ‘must not be drawn into responses that feed the cycle of violence and hate’. He has urged his country not to ‘keep making the same mistakes’ in the Middle East, something he has been saying for decades. He has said he will not support airstrikes in Syria unless it is clear that military action will help us achieve our strategic objective of defeating Isis.
If you look at Corbyn’s actual words — rather than the Twitter feeds of the organisations he is affiliated with or the outbursts of his crazy fans — his response to the difficult and frightening problem of terrorism has been sensible, cautious and moral.

Please everyone write to Maria Caulfield urging her to vote against this illogical, bloodthirsty folly.

On Syria there is a majority overall in Parliament and the country for standing with our allies and a grim acceptance that with all its horrors sitting on our hands while the Middle East falls into barbarism is not a realistic option. Parliament seems to have had a sensible debate and be close to a careful, conclusion.
As a lifetime hater of America and supporter of its enemies Corbyn is bound to oppose even the most carefully calibrated strategy if it means committing to airstrikes, especially alongside the US.
This is why, if next weeks by election goes as badly as predicted, a crisis may be reached. Labour now see that Corbyn is not only wrecking their current electability but that every day the farce continues the mountain of distrust gets higher.
The BBC depends on a centralised big state tax funded model and most of its staff read the Guardian. It generally deplores any suggestion the country might be more like America but supports anything taking us closer to whatever Euro leftish model is in vogue. Corbyn, however, would like us to be more like 'East' Germany not the West . Faced with ideological fundamentalism of this antiquity, for the first time in my life the Beeb may actually be slightly more supportive of the Conservative Party. Weird times .

Maria Cauldfield tows the Tory party line, she has no opinions outside of the Tory central office script, spineless. Also dislike the way she feels it necessary to cram in the words "cancer nurse" in just about every sentence she utters, no doubt thinking they illicit additional sympathy and support. How did we end up with this pale version of an MP?

Never mind a cancer nurse - look her up in "The revelation to John"
