Although there is no scheduled timetable to vote for the United Kingdom’s military intervention being expanded from Iraq to Syria, it is likely it will happen before Christmas.
Defence Secretary, Michael Fallon, has begun talking to MPs to pass the vote through the Commons.
David Cameron has ignored the protocol of receiving United Nations authorisation believing it not necessary as he did not want to face a “Russian Veto”.
The Labour Party however has suggested that Mr Cameron seeks a United Nations resolution.
The confidence that the vote will pass through the Commons as led to an unnamed senior cabinet minister telling the BBC: “we’re going to war”.
Although MPs voted for a military intervention against Assad’s government in Damascus, it was later pushed aside to focus on air strikes against ISIS in Iraq.
