Emily Thornberry began this Talk Radio interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer by saying we should talk to the Argies about the Falklands, and it did not get much better from there. Asked if she wanted to respond to the views of Falklands veteran Rear Admiral Chris Parry CBE, the Shadow Defence Secretary replied: “No, not really”. McBride still has work to do…

MoD Statement on First RAF Air Strikes in Syria

Following the vote in the House of Commons last night, Royal Air Force Tornado GR4 aircraft flew their first offensive operation against Daesh terrorist targets inside Syria.

The mainstay of Daesh’s financial income is derived from exploitation of a number of oilfields that they hold. These are overwhelmingly located in Daesh’s heartlands in eastern Syria. Several of these oilfields have already been effectively targeted by other coalition partners; RAF aircraft and precision weaponry are well suited to attacking, with low collateral risk, this type of target.

Overnight, RAF Tornado GR4s, supported by a Voyager air refuelling tanker and a Reaper, and operating in conjunction with other coalition aircraft, employed Paveway IV guided bombs to conduct strikes against six targets within the extensive oilfield at Omar, 35 miles inside Syria’s eastern border with Iraq. The Omar oilfield is one of the largest and most important to Daesh’s financial operations, and represents over 10% of their potential income from oil. Carefully selected elements of the oilfield infrastructure were targeted, ensuring the strikes will have a significant impact on Daesh’s ability to extract the oil to fund their terrorism.

Coalition air operations have already degraded Daesh’s front-line military capabilities and have assisted the Iraqi ground forces in liberating some 30% of the territory that the terrorists initially seized in that country during the summer of 2014. By extending RAF offensive operations into Syria, our aircraft are now able to help dismantle the means by which Daesh plan, direct and sustain their campaign of terror.

Before our aircrew conducted their attacks, as is normal they used the aircraft’s advanced sensors to confirm that no civilians were in the proximity of the targets, who might be placed at risk. Our initial analysis of the operation indicates that the strikes were successful.

Sound.

Labour MPs Sent Images of Dead Children By Sick Anti-War Campaigners

Labour MPs who have yet to make up their minds on tonight’s vote have been inundated with graphic images of dead Syrian children sent by anti-war protesters. The bloody photos are too distressing to publish in full, and include images of babies and toddlers killed in Syria in an attempt to convince MPs to vote against war. This was sent to Labour MP Melanie Onn:

This was sent to Stella Creasy:

Packed Commons for Debate on “Terrorist Sympathisers”

The Commons is currently debating whether or not the Labour leadership are “terrorist sympathisers”. Doesn’t this just remind everyone that Corbyn and McDonnell actually are terrorist sympathisers?

Bomber Blunt’s Syria U-Turn

Three weeks ago Crispin Blunt, the chair of the Foreign Affairs select committee whose voice is crucial for Cameron in winning over MPs on Syria, opposed war:

“We are concerned that the Government is focusing on extending airstrikes to Syria, responding to the powerful sense that something must be done to tackle ISIL in Syria, without any expectation that its action will be militarily decisive, and without a coherent and long-term plan for defeating ISIL and ending the civil war… [as things stand] the Government should not try to obtain Parliamentary approval to extend British military action to Syria.”

Today Blunt backed bombing:

“On balance the country would be best served by this House supporting [the PM’s] judgement.

Shadow Chancellor: Arrest Blair!

Jeremy Corbyn got his own back on Tony Blair last night in the only sensible way, by calling for him to be tried for war crimes:

Quote of the Day

Owen Smith backs one hour contracts but wants to abolish zero hours contracts:

“You need to give people a contract to say, ‘here’s what you will be working’. It could be one, but I’m saying it shouldn’t be zero, we should invert that emphasis.”
