Military intervention in Syria ‘legally dubious,’ says Labour MP

Military intervention in Syria is legally dubious and Prime Minister David Cameron’s attempt to push parliament into war would be “disrespectful,” Labour leadership contender Andy Burnham has said.

Speaking to the Huffington Post on Monday, Burnham said another vote on intervening in war-torn Syria carries no “urgency.” He added a number of hurdles must be passed before such action can be taken.

Labour, under Ed Miliband, was successful in defeating a motion to bomb Syria in 2013, causing considerable embarrassment to Cameron. Two years later, Burnham has cautioned against a rash move to intervene in the crisis-ridden state.

The tests are quite big. There’s a very large one about legality first, because it’s not like the 2013 situation,” he said.

This isn’t an invitation by a democratic government to come in, is it?
