UKIP MEP Tim Aker has slammed Thurrock MP, Jackie Doyle-Price over her support for bombing Syria.
Cllr Tim Aker MEP said: "Einstein said madness is doing the same thing over and over again whilst expecting a different outcome. By that definition our MP is mad to support bombing Syria without a global Coalition or a concrete plan for after. Look at the chaos caused by bombing Libya We bombed it without a plan and now it is a failed state riddled with people smugglers, Islamists and gangsters.
Look at the disaster of every single foreign intervention in the Middle East in the past 15 years. Who in their right mind would want to repeat it in Syria? Let’s remember if the PM had his way last year, the UK would have ended up bombing Assad and indirectly helping Islamic State!
Jackie Doyle Price votes for Tory defence cuts, supports increases in foreign aid and a pitifullly low police budget. Despite these being irresponsible policies, what sort of rationale is there to support an intervention that will make the situation worse in the Middle East, make us less safe at home and unprepared to deal with the fallout afterwards."
