We can be proud of the military campaigns in Iraq and Syria. There remains much to do and we will stay the course.

James Gray: Before yet another defence review, we must first answer the big question – what is Britain for?
Unless we know our role in the world, we cannot have a strategy. And without a strategy, we cannot suitably design our armed forces.
Values give real power to people – not symbols. Of all the issues that we face, is this truly one that our Prime Minister should be focusing on?
I voted Leave because I felt it would present chances to do things better. This is just such a chance.

The savage attacks we have witnessed must drive us to work more closely with our regional allies.
James Frayne: Voters want a brutal response to terrorists, but aren’t clear on the best way to combat extremism

The Prime Minister spoke for many when she said that “we should all be proud of the help and support we are giving to people around the world”.
Above all, don’t neglect the obvious. May is vulnerable to Tory revolts – as the NICs debacle proved. She wants a real working majority.
