Stop the War coalition is staging a protest against intervention in the Syrian civil war in London today. A march is taking place throughout the capital and will take in Parliament and Downing Street before ending with a rally.
Residents of the town of Reigate in Surrey, a Conservative stronghold, have told ITV News that they believe the decision to abstain from military action in Syria was the right move.
Paul Davies reports:
Labour's Newport West MP has said that ministers that failed to vote at the House of Commons over Syria "deserved to be sacked".
The Sun newspaper has issued a 'death notice' on its front page after MPs voted against military action in Syria during a House of Commons debate on Thursday.
Downing Street insisted that the US special relationship is still intact, saying in statement: "President Obama said he fully respected the PM's approach and that he had not yet taken a decision on the US response."
However the newspaper has responded with a notice that states: "The Special Relationship. Died at home after a sudden illness on Thursday, August 29, 2013, aged 67".
At least five Government ministers face the sack in the wake of David Cameron’s failure to secure parliamentary backing for military strikes against the Syrian regime, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Alan Duncan, David Gauke and Steve Webb failed to return from holiday to support the Government, angering the Prime Minister, according to sources.
The newspaper added that Mr Cameron is expected to announce a series of changes as soon as next week, with the position of Sir George Young, the Chief Whip, also under scrutiny.
The Prime Minister was forced to drop plans for the potential use of British forces in strikes against Syria after MPs - including 30 Tory rebels - rejected a motion indicating that military action could be required to protect Syrian civilians on Thursday night.
Setting out the approach he would now take to Syria, the Prime Minister said that a "robust response" was still needed over the use of chemical weapons.
David Cameron will try to restore his authority after his Commons rebuff on Syria by reshuffling his ministerial team – and shaking up a Whips Office being blamed for his defeat on Thursday night, according to the Independent.
The Prime Minister said today he will continue to argue for a "robust response" to the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons even though British military action had been ruled out after MPs voted against the principle of intervention.
