Abstract

The UK parliament has authorised military action against ISIL militants in Iraq (but not Syria) in a vote that cut across party lines. James Strong examines the significance of the vote, writing that in military terms, the vote was mostly insignificant as Britain will contribute just six Tornado jets to fighting in Iraq. It was far more significant from a political perspective, with Cameron having to make concessions to get Miliband on board.
