Labour MP Lloyd Russell - Moyle for Brighton and Hove has slammed the conservative government over their handling of the Iran situation.
This comes after US president Donald Trump ordered the assassination of Iran’s war general Qasem Soleimani which has caused tensions to rise between Iran and the West.
Russel – Moyle stated in an interview with us that the UK government has not been dealing with the fallout of these events well, claiming that the Government has lost control of the situation.
“The Government doesn’t really seem to be handling anything on Iran does it”
“The government seems to be reactive, our shadow foreign secretary put a very good argument in the chamber saying that the government is saying two things to two different people”.
“In the chamber they are saying we should support our deal with the US/Iran and just improve it”
“However, this morning Boris Johnson said it that the whole deal was rubbish and it need to be scrapped because it was Obama’s deal and that we need a new Trump deal”
“These are incompatible positions with each other” Said Russell - Moyle
