Corbyn said Britain should be trying to negotiate a ceasefire. — Reuters picLONDON, April 14 — British opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said today that Prime Minister Theresa May should have sought approval from parliament before ordering cruise missile strikes against Syria.
“Bombs won’t save lives or bring about peace. This legally questionable action risks escalating further,” Corbyn, a veteran anti-war campaigner, said.
“Britain should be playing a leadership role to bring about a ceasefire in the conflict, not taking instructions from Washington and putting British military personnel in harm’s way.
“Theresa May should have sought parliamentary approval, not trailed after Donald Trump.”
