The decision in the House of Commons today was the wrong one. I hardly know where to begin with the reasons why.
But I can tell you the causation for the decision: political incompetence and ignorance, which is why I want to study peace studies and get into a position where I can influence stupid (because they are) MPs.
This is why we are about to kill more moslem civilians and create more anti-West sentiment:
(a) Something must be done.
(b) Airstrikes are something.
(c) Airstrikes will be done.
The problem with collective responsibility is that nobody takes responsibility.
And, Mr Corbyn, you were wrong to permit a free vote. That will end your career as party leader before this week is out. Your adherence to the party was greater than your adherence to your principles, and that is why you are not a great man. Sorry, dude. I was with you until you blinked. But thanks for having a go. Rather than listen to the self-serving and mercenary political advisers, you should have rallied the academics and used them to defeat the debate in advance with facts and case studies. The Tories will always be better at rhetoric, they do it at school. You should have used evidence.
