Syria Crisis: Is Your MP Listening To You?

Britain will NOT be involved in military action against Syria for now, after MPs rejected the idea. The government had already watered down the wording of its proposal with MP's asked to vote on supporting the idea of military action in principle.

That wasn't enough for many, with two Northamptonshire MOP's - Andy Sawford (Labour, Corby) and Philip Hollobone (Conservative, Kettering) - among those voting against and defeating the Government.

Stuart talks to Andy Sawford, Philip Hollobone, Peter Bone (Conservative MP for Wellingborough) and to Karim Ayoube, a Syrian living in Northampton.
