    I am not defending Rudd, she at the very least proven to be incompetent.

    As I have already said, I am not suggesting that these people have not been treated disgracefully, but let's not ignore that immigration was such a hot topic with the public that in many people's eyes on here it was the reason for Brexit. I have yet to see evidence to definatively confirm that the intention was to do this deliberately, rather I think it was unintentional (at least that is what I hope). That said whilst I believe that Rudd should go, as a remainer but I am keen on keeping a balance in the cabinet.

    If that was the case and if it was done with full knowledge that it would affect these people directly then it is disgraceful, but I resent that this issue is being conflated with real illegal immigration which is not beneficial for the individuals or the country that they arrive in.

    Probably because they have taken immediate action. I am not going to defend the Wind Rush issue as I think it is disgraceful, but there is nothing wrong with pursuing a policy to remove illegal immigrants from the country given the nature of the exploitation involved. As always it is the problem is with the implementation of such a policy.

    Serious, you would take him over Smalling a regular in the United first team?

    I don't think it is exactly 'pure' speculation given Raynor's admission that Labour's economic plans are 'shit or bust'. It could work one way or the other, with the other being just as unpalatable as some of the possible consequences of brexit being bounded about is to me.

    Yes I am still serving. The Service Personnel I know are generally supportive of the action taken, whether that is fully representative though I am not sure. Personally I am very wary of getting involved again in that region but I believe that the dangers of doing nothing outweigh those of taking action. I am concerned by the growing influence that Russia and Iran have in the region and can't see any good coming from it. I believe that the Yemen situation highlights the danger of leaving Iranian influence in the region unchecked given their arming of Houthi rebels. Whilst I am no fan of the Saudi's, I do believe that the danger of instability there would have disastrous effects given that it is a hotbed of Sunni extremism.

    If you believe that an intervention is needed then why wouldn't you participate rather than let someone else do it for you.

    Which shows how ridiculous Labour's position is on Syria by insisting that they would only back an intervention if this was supported by the UN. I would have more respect for them if they admitted that there would be no circumstances that they would intervene.

    Sending them a sample would just give them an opportunity to deny their involvement. I mean no one would seriously believe that they would admit it. By taking the approach of letting the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons verify our analysis this removes that opportunity whilst strengthening our position.

    Putin does not need any help with his election, his re-election is a given as he his real opponents have either been murdered or have been barred from running. This was covered on Panarama last night.

    Hypothetically if we gave them a sample and it was their nerve agent do you think they would admit to it or would we have another MH17 farce? I know we are in an era where nobody believes experts, but these things have a very specific signature which is pointing directly at Russia. These agents will be stored by the state and so should not go missing by accident. The circumstantial evidence is overwhelming too. In my opinion Corbyn knows full well that the evidence is stacked against Russia but is using this for political ends which is why many are giving him stick. Whilst this might play well to his core vote, it continues to show how divisive he is and why he doesn't poll as high as he could against a weak Government. In my opinion by taking the response we have it is us who are taking the initiative and time will tell how this pans out, but we couldn't leave it this time.
