Stay out of Syria: Why warmongering is BAD for Britain, writes Ben Harris-Quinney

At the same time the White House was briefing there was no shift in Syria policy, and the US missile strike was a one-off reaction to Assad's reported use of chemical weapons. In truth, it was as much a show of strength to China and North Korea.

It was obvious to any observer that the UK Government's continuous support for foreign intervention was not chiming with the new global order, or even the US. It has not been chiming with the British public for 15 years.

The Foreign Office proposals were swiftly and embarrassingly further dismissed at the G7 meeting just two days later. Much of this will be papered over as focus shifts to the General Election, but an outdated and ill-conceived foreign policy could at any time blow up and derail both a government and the Brexit process.
