PM right to point finger on terror

Published 04/12/2015

The Prime Minister is facing calls to apologise for asking whether Tory MPs would be comfortable sharing a lobby with terrorist sympathisers.

The leader of the Opposition and his shadow Chancellor have shared platforms with the IRA, Hezbollah and Hamas, campaigned against extradition of IRA terrorists, called for them to be honoured, and said Irish unity can only be achieved by "the ballot box, the bullet and the bomb".

The description, insofar as it refers to the two people forming Labour's official position on Syria is, therefore, accurate. Perhaps the PM's comments related to the hierarchy of the Labour Party?
