Leader of UK's Labour Party Backs Last Night's Syria Vote

House of Commons voted against the principle of military intervention in Syria


Ed Miliband has insisted he did the "right thing by the British people" by helping to block UK involvement in any military action in Syria.

The Labour leader said an "ill-thought out" intervention would make things worse for the Syrian people in the wake of last week's chemical weapons attack.

Senior Conservatives have criticised Labour's actions in the run-up to Thursday's critical vote in Parliament.

Lord Howard accused Labour of "changing its position" several times.
