Former British Army officer Colonel Tim Collins has told Julia Hartley-Brewer that Jeremy Corbyn's position on Syria is "a nonsense".
He was asked by Julia: "Is there a sitting round the campfire alternative that would viably lead to fewer people in Syria suffering, fewer children suffering chemical attacks?"
Colonel Collins answered: "I can imagine why Jeremy Corbyn might say that. I think the Russians might owe him a few drinks for that suggestion, because that’s effectively giving Russia, President Putin a veto on British parliamentary decision making. That’s a nonsense."
"Yes there are other ways it must be carried out. It must be carried out in tandem. We need to go after the wealth of the Syrians, Iranians and Russians [behind the attacks] who are living freely. We need to make them international pariahs, isolate them in their own countries. We know the individuals behind this."
