Skepta, Rudimental, Brian May; The Music And TV Stars Standing With Corbyn Against Airstrikes In Syria

An 11-hour debate on whether Britain will extend its air strike campaign from Iraq into Syria is raging in the House of Commons. The move would be a response to the attacks by ISIS in Paris on November 13, where 130 civilians were killed. Ahead of the debate this morning Prime Minister David Cameron labelled Jeremy Corbyn a ‘terrorist sympathiser’ for his stance against airstrikes in Syria. Here are the music and TV stars who stand alongside Corbyn on the issue.
