Jamie Reed's open letter to his constituents re the Air campaign in Iraq and Syria

It is rare that I say something positive about Jamie Reed, the Labour MP for Copeland, but I will do so today because vital issues of peace and war should transcend party politics.

Jamie Reed has written an open letter to his constituents explaining his decision to vote for the extension of Britain's air campaign against DA'ESH, the so-called "Islamic State" from Iraq to also include DA'ESH targets in Syria.

You can read his letter on the Cumbria Crack website at

I agree with almost every word of his letter and commend it as well worth reading.

Could not agree more with you, and Jamie, that some issues are far far too serious and important for party politics to play a part. And that this issue is one.
