MP’s ‘yes’ a protest at chemical weapons
6:00pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
Oxford West and Abingdon MP Nicola Blackwood has explained her reason for voting with David Cameron on Syria.
Ms Blackwood, right, who voted last thursday in favour of potential military action, told the Oxford Mail: “On Thursday night I voted to condemn the use of chemical weapons against innocent civilians and to support waiting for further efforts at the UN before any decision about military action could be taken.
“Like many others, I abhor the suffering Syrian civilians are enduring but I was not yet convinced that military intervention was the answer.”
