Cameron's offer to Syrian refugees derisory

Paddy Ashdown, writing in the Guardian, has called David Cameron's plan for Syrian refugees derisory and pathetic.

The plan is to take in 20,000 refugees over five years and is totally inadequate.

Paddy Ashdown also says that Isis will not be defeated by killing more Arab Muslims with more western bombs. "What is needed here is more clever diplomacy, not more pointless bombing, and this is where Britain should be taking the lead".
