'We have not done this because Trump asked us to': Theresa May denies being led by US president as she delivers passionate defence of Syria airstrikes, telling MPs she is 'haunted' by victims of Assad's poison attack
Theresa May (main image and right) told MPs today she is 'haunted' by victims of Assad's poison attack as she delivered a passionate defence of the Syria strikes. The Prime Minister insisted action to degrade Bashar Assad's chemical weapons capability was in the 'national interest' and justified on humanitarian grounds. In a performance welcomed by MPs on both sides of the Commons,Mrs also flatly denied that she was dancing to the tune of Donald Trump, and dismissed criticism for failing to recall parliament to vote on the action. Pointing to the nerve agent attack in Salisbury last month, she said it was vital that the use of such banned substances did not become 'normalised' around the world and the US, UK and France 'could not wait' while further atrocities took place. Jeremy Corbyn (left) was jeered for claiming Saturday morning's successful operation only happened because Donald Trump demanded it.
