Former Labour cabinet minister Peter Hain told the Guardian he felt intervening in Syria would be "very dangerous".

Mr Hain, who is poised to vote against the motion when Parliament meets tomorrow if he returns from a foreign trip in time, said: "The Prime Minister is asking the nation to back him on a dangerous strike when nobody knows what the consequences will be. I think that's very, very dangerous politics."
