60% of British public oppose UK military action against Syria

Almost three times as many people oppose the UK taking part in military action against Syria as those who favour doing so, according to a special Opinium/Observer poll.

The survey straddled the period immediately before and after last Thursday night’s House of Commons vote, which saw David Cameron defeated in his attempt to win parliamentary backing for joint UK action against Syria, alongside the US. [cont.]
