Government lose vote on war in Syria as only EIGHT per cent of Brits want urgent strikesDavid Cameron’s administration suffered a shock blow after being defeated by a majority of 13 over plans for military intervention in the Syria crisis.The Coalition had put forward a motion supporting military action if claims President Bashar Assad used chemical weapons against civilians was proved true.

The news comes after Express Online had exclusively revealed that only eight per cent of Brits were backing immediate missile strikes on Syria.

The poll results, which come before MPs historic Commons debate on military action, showed 80 per cent of people are against David Cameron launching an immediate attack, while 12 per cent are undecided.

A significant 41 per cent of people are against action by Britain in any circumstances, while 39 per cent would only agree with a launch if the UN confirms chemical weapons have been used by the Syrian regime and then sanctions a strike.

The results are a blow to David Cameron who has been arguing for intervention amid a growing chorus of MPs urging caution following the lessons of the Iraq war 10 years ago.
