The United Kingdom will bomb Syria

The motion has been approved by a majority in the House of Commons. Notable events of the day involved shadow foreign secretary Hillary Benn delivering an inspiring speech at the end of the debate, responded with applause from both sides of the chamber. Despite multiple attempts, MPs failed to convince Cameron to apologise for his “terrorist sympathisers” comment. 

I will of course try to deliver another blog concluding all of this over the next few days, by which time we will have an accurate number of Labour MPs who voted with the government, and by the time I write it, airstrikes may already have been carried out.
