How Welsh MPs voted on Syria

MPs have backed air strikes on so-called Islamic State militants in Syria by a large majority, with Labour split on the issue.
Twenty of Wales' 25 Labour MPs joined the three Plaid Cymru MPs and sole Liberal Democrat  in rejecting the plan.

Shadow cabinet member Chris Bryant and junior spokesmen Wayne David and Stephen Doughty were the most prominent Welsh Labour MPs for military action.
All 11 Welsh Tory MPs supported Prime Minister David Cameron's proposals.

  1. I would say Glyn that the Celts were more civilised that those dashed Romans the English are so fond of. Our one and only Labour MP also voted against, but to his shame, well maybe not considering he is in court on charges of lying to his constituents, our one and only Lib Dem voted with the Tories. Jeremy Corbyn now should do the decent thing and throw those who did not support him out of his cabinet, free vote or not. He was wrong to give them that, but hey ho, Labour are committing suicide.

  2. Who thought we would see the day when the MP for the Rhondda would vote with the Tories to kill people?

    1. Well Bryant was once a Tory anfd Thatcher supporter.
