BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:15 A.M.) – The leader of Britain’s Labor Party Jeremy Corbyn stated on Thursday that Prime Minister Theresa May should await the results of an independent UN investigation before launching airstrikes in Syria.

“Britain should press for an independent U.N.-led investigation of last weekend’s horrific chemical weapons attack so that those responsible can be held to account,” Corbyn said, as quoted by the Reuters News Agency.

Corbyn questioned whether or not May was being influenced by U.S. President Donald Trump, adding that she should instead press for an independent U.N. investigation into the alleged chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town of Douma.

“Britain should press for an independent U.N.-led investigation into the suspected chemical attack in Syria rather than wait for instructions from the U.S. President Donald Trump on how to proceed,” he stated.

On Thursday, May received approval from her cabinet regarding a potential attack on Syria, despite a cautious response from many members of Parliament.

The 5 eyes nations are on the warpath again. Their leaders want blood not evidence. Who asks whether their propaganda claims are true – after the war is over and won?

p.s. The ship that caused the Spanish-US war blew up in a coal explosion. The Lusitania was carrying ammo. We know that by now but does it change history?

His economic policies might be wacky but he’s a decent politician and that is what a lot of Brits see in him. Hence the rise in the UK polls favouring the Labour Party over the Conservatives. I do think the current PM, May, has a difficult job with all the Old Boys undermining her at all stages
