Speaking about proposed UK involvement in air strikes against Isis, Jon Ashe (Chair of the local Green Party) said “We totally reject the politics and methods of Isis. But the last few decades have shown that military intervention in the Middle East leads to the deaths of innocent people, is followed by more bitterness and violence, and doesn’t provide lasting solutions. We urge the UK government to rule out any further military action in the Middle East, and instead work with others towards lasting peaceful and political solutions.
