Top Brass Condemns “Delusional” Smith’s ISIS Gaffe

KEMP

Defence expert Colonel Richard Kemp, the former commander of British forces in Afghanistan, has blasted Owen Smith for his comments on ISIS. He tells Guido:

“This sort of delusional sickness affects Labour widely. Christine Shawcroft, a Corbyn ally and Labour National Executive Committee member, said not long ago that we should have a cup of tea with Islamic State rather than bombing them. Firstly, they would not negotiate with us in any circumstances. Secondly, what would we negotiate about? The Islamic State want only to massacre, torture, rape, subjugate and expand their sharia rule across the Middle East and the globe. How could anybody possibly take seriously a man who proposes negotiation with such barbarians.”

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
