Warmongers defeated by 'Ed the cunt'
22.30 BREAKING: The Government has been defeated on the Syria motion, by 285 to 272.
It makes any British action on Syria highly unlikely. Ed Miliband asks will he confirm he will not use the Royal Prerogative to take action.
The PM responds: I can give that assurance. He says the House has not voted for either motion. "I believe in respecting the Will of this House of Commons."
"It is very clear to me the British parliament, reflecting the view of the Britiish people, does not want see military action. I get that and the Government will act accordingly."
It's a huge rebellion. It will lead to calls, at least, for an early general election or for Cameron to resign. And it has brought Ed Miliband's dreadful summer to a sudden end.Link
