Corbyn: We have to admit 'war on terror' is not working

27 Mai, 2017, 15:37 | Author: Claudine Rigal

As the election campaign resumed following the Manchester attack. the Labour leader used his speech to state how a government led by him would tackle terrorism.

In the half-hour grilling, Mr Corbyn also defended a speech earlier on Friday in which he linked Britain's involvement in military engagements in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria with terrorism in the UK.

Nevertheless, May remains the heavy favourite to wake up as prime minister on June 9.

The Labour leader told the Andrew Neil Interviews on the BBC on Friday night that all his engagement with Northern Ireland was in pursuit of peace.

When asked specifically about a Wolfe Tone Society meeting he attended in London in 1987, Corbyn said he participated in a silence "to honour all those who died in Northern Ireland".

'The only poll that counts when it comes to elections is the poll that takes place on election day. and I will continue to be out campaigning across the country.

The verbal exchange followed apparent electorate gains by Labour.

But he suggested the role of nuclear weapons would be up for consideration in a strategic defence review planned if Labour wins office.

Despite the increased threat level throughout the country, and the addition of extra armed police and soldiers, the country's top counter-terrorism police officer urged Britons not to hide away indoors during the upcoming holiday weekend, which finds much of the country enjoying fine weather.

The Conservatives' fightback will start on Saturday when Boris Johnson, the foreign secretary and a grassroots' favourite, will tour the television and radio studios with the Tory message.

But he stressed the "responsibility" of government to minimise the chance of attacks and accused the Tory government of underfunding the police, increasing the terror threat with foreign interventions in Iraq, Syria and Libya, and "surrendering" freedoms in the face of the threat.

Mr Corbyn said the "war on terror is not working" and the troops deployed on the streets following the Manchester attack was a "stark reminder" that the approach was failing.

Buoyed by polls showing a decrease in the Conservatives' lead, Corbyn said that under Labour policy would be one that reduces the threat rather than increases it.

The suicide bomber who killed at least 22 people in Manchester is no more representative of British Muslims than the far-right extremist who murdered a lawmaker previous year, opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Friday.

The Labour mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham, distanced himself from Mr Corbyn's comments. I don't support the IRA.

"We've had Theresa May promising in three elections to make cuts to immigration - I am making no promises on that". "We have to make our population secure".

Corbyn has held isolationist views for years. Polls have consistently shown that most voters oppose western adventurism and believe it has endangered the U.K. Corbyn's words will resonate among both the anti-interventionist left and the isolationist right (this is, after all, a country which has just voted to retreat from even its closest neighbors). [There's] a tendency to blame governments for everything, and I don't think we should.

"We went through all the horrors of Northern Ireland - all through the 70s and 80s - through the period of the Troubles, and eventually came from that a peace process, the Good Friday Agreement, and now relative peace and stability".
