A man of principle.

I admit to feeling very sorry for Jeremy Corbyn.....the poor man only landed his job a short while ago and it's all crumbling beneath him!
If he suddenly decided that it was ok to bomb Syria he would be labelled a hypercrite. Can we expect him to abandon all his cherished principles?
But if he doesn't almost all his entire team will revolt.
He was elected by a huge personal following...and the speed with which its all melted away is amazing!
I am myself feeling very ambiguous on this issue....of course it's wrong to drop bombs on anyone...even if we could isolate the young jihadists to do it.
My friend Ray had a brilliant thought on this subject on her Daydreamer blog. We are told that much of their organisation is done via social media....so why don't we bomb the places that have the means that allow that to happen...it's better to bomb buildings that house the modern equivalent of telegraph poles than those that house people surely . We are told we have the technology to do that. So at least give it a try , if only to let Jeremy Corbyn off the hook!
The glee of several politicians of all colours , the infighting now apparent in the Labour Party is hard to watch for me...at a time when we should be coming together to fight a dangerous enemy! That enemy must be positively gleeful at the apparent disintegration of a once great party.
What ever your personal choice of political parties...you have to feel sorry for the present dilemma of a man of principle. I do.
