Corbyn: It Would Have Been “Far Better” if Jihadi John Had Not Been Killed

Jeremy-Corbyn-11_3328948b

Here it is at last: Corbyn’s statement on the Jihadi John drone strike:

“We await identification of the person targeted in last night’s US air attack in Syria. It appears Mohammed Emwazi has been held to account for his brutal and callous crimes. However, it would have been far better for us all if he had been held to account in a court of law. These events only underline the necessity of accelerating international efforts, under the auspices of the UN, to bring an end to the Syrian conflict as part of a comprehensive regional settlement.”

Sadly no suggestion from Jezza on how he would have been arrested and brought before a court. Still, it’s an improvement on calling it a tragedy…
