PENRITH and Border MP Rory Stewart has returned from a five-day fact-finding mission to Iraq in a bid to gain an understanding about how the UK should tackle the crisis.
“Iraq is the most important issue we face and we have a huge humanitarian crisis,” he said. “It’s so unbelievably complicated – the more you look the more difficult it seems.”
He suggests the need to start setting up refugee camps for winter; to look at forming a professional military army to defend the Kurds from the Islamic State and the need for a greater understaning of the region.
