It didn't take long for military action to start,


57 minutes after the vote in the Commons.


Yesterday MPs showed their inclination for air strikes.


But do we have the ability for a sustained and effective campaign?


The Syria operation will plays another great burden on the royal


air force, I'm confident they will be ready for that, but there is


always the possibility of overstretching an already stretched


military. he has a ground force ready to


attack IS, but there's a snag. Also tonight,


they're counting the votes in the Oldham by-election, but meanwhile


Labour MPs are preoccupied by We'll hear from an MP complaining


of online attacks and ask what the party leadership


plans to do about it. I am worried that social media may


be poisoning politics, people who are spilling abuse, bile, bullying,


it is not conducive to the way that we should do politics in this


country. This is like an episode of Bake Off

So, the first British sorties into Syria were described as successful.


But what about day 100, or day 1,000?


We have, after all, been told to expect a long campaign.


Will we be out in three years? There are no guarantees.


Our diplomatic editor Mark Urban looks at how effective


and how sustained our military effort might be.


VOICEOVER: Britain is moving its campaign against the self-proclaimed


Islamic State into a different gear, doubling the number of jets flying


from Cyprus, and leaving many wondering how role this will go on


and how it will end. Let's be clear, I do not think there is any military


solution to the region, but the military can provide the time and


space for a political solution to grow roots, and I have no doubt,


that my military colleagues will tackle that challenge with great


courage, professionalism and determination, I just hope that is


matched by political masters over the long-term. Last night's strike


by four Tornados in an oilfield in eastern Syria has upped Britain's


role, in what is a large coalition. The US-led effort has conducted a


total of 8573 strikes in Iraq and Syria, since it all began. By


comparison, the UK has carried out 380 strikes, in Iraq, with the


tornadoes and Reaper drones that it is already operating, just over 4%


of the total, 7% of the strikes in Iraq. Russia, since its dramatic


entry into the conflict two months ago, has managed over 2300 strikes


but there is some dispute about how they count them, far more common in


any case, than Britain can do. Then we will have some token aircraft


over there from the British, they will drop a few bombs, we will say


thank you very much, and we will... The president will be able to say, "


now we have the British helping us! " And that is good. Not achieve


nothing, they will achieve a little something, but air strikes alone


will not win a conflict. In truth, with the RAF at its current size,


all it can hope to be is a junior, if effective member of an


international coalition. And now that 16 jets have been committed to


this operation, there really is no more slack in the system. With the


Defence Secretary saying that they may have two bomb for years, if


necessary, the cabinet must be may have two bomb for years, if


hoping that there are no other crises that emerge anywhere else.


How much will the new typhoons contribute to degrading I S? They


can drop bombs but a smaller variety of them than the tornado, some


experts argue that Typhoon's best role maybe as a fighter in dangerous


skies. With the tornado having an optimised air to ground radar, and


heavily laden with weapons and sensors, it may well be that the


typhoon, because of the enhanced air to air threat, possibly, they are


putting out the typhoon as an escort. It may be that the packages


that go in will go in with four Tornados and two typhoons. Five


front line typhoons woodlands, 12 jets each. -- squadrons. 12 are


required to defend the UK, then there is Baltic air policing and the


defence of the Falklands, leaving around to squadrons spare, which


will be needed to sustain the six playing the poignant in Cyprus. The


only other aircraft the RAF has that can bomb, the ageing tornado, and


that is also now fully committed. All of that is in the future, there


is no doubt that over the short-term, the commitment to the


Syria operation is going to place another greater burden on the royal


air force. I'm confident they will be ready for that, but there is


always implications of overstretching an already stretched


military. Russia, America, France and the UK are all now bombing


Islamic State in Syria, the organisation is under intense


pressure. For Britain, upping and sustaining involvement will not be


easy, but in its own way, that is evidence of a significant national


commitment. STUDIO: Mark Urban reporting


with some military maths. The air strikes are just one part


of what we are told is the British The other is some kind


of settlement for the future of Syria, that might provide


an army and an alternative to IS. Lyse Doucet is the BBC's Chief


International Correspondent Last night we spoke with you, for


the immediate response, but you have spoken with the Syrian government is


now, what is their take on this British intervention? The tape is in


two parts, first, the information minister, all of the senior


officials, say that Britain is basically breaking international


law, violating Syrian airspace by not doing what Russia has done, and


request informal position to enter the skies. Secondly, most


importantly, he insisted that the air campaign was, as he put it, a


show of bravado for the benefit of the British public and Parliament,


that it would not have any impact, because it was not coordinated with


the Syrian army, and that, he said, was the path to success, and Britain


was doomed to fail in the air campaign, against the presence of


Islamic State. The talks, Vienna talks, that are the great hope for


getting there, give us your view, the realism, of delivering very


much, very quickly? There are two phrases that government officials


used often in the debate in the British Parliament, and after it


ended, the first was the Vienna process, the second was winning the


peace. There was a significant breakthrough in in recent months,


only significant because of the very low bar in Syria, where there has


been deadlocked for five years, and that is that all of the main outside


players involved in one way or another on one side or another in


this war, all sat together around one table in Vienna. If the 1 table


was the only point of unity, that recess, they have come up with what


they call a transition plan, which would take place over two years, but


there is still vast gaps, most importantly of all, the question of


president Bashar al-Assad, arid states are now saying, this is a


concession, the process of transition, going to a totally new


order of power here, both in security terms and terms of


political institutions, can start with Bashar al-Assad, to avoid total


collapse, as we have seen in neighbouring states, but it must end


without him, Iran and Russia ironclad doubly opposed. -- and


Russia are implacable in their opposition. Golf states have blamed


each other for the continuing the stable as Asia not just in Syria but


across the region. The other one is winning the peace, bear in mind that


Syrian talks in Vienna did not have any Syrians around the table, that


is supposed to be the next step, the Syrians themselves will sit


together. There is no sense at all that there is any thing, on their


agenda, they are literally opposed, still speaking with contempt. There


is no sense that the optimistic statements we have heard today, from


senior government officials in Britain, political transition, would


be under way in any time soon. -- Gulf states. It is going to be a


long haul and a very messy long haul.


Now, in the complex web of different groups fighting IS


in Syria, there is one that has been seen as a more reliable ally


Their fighters, the Peshmerga in Iraq and the YPG in Syria,


have not been counted in the 70,000 troops


The snag is that this army is not, at the moment,


A little earlier, I spoke to the Kurdish foreign minister,


Falah Mustafa Bakir, who's based in Erbil,


I asked him how effective air strikes have been where the British


have already been involved. The air strikes have been effective,


helpful and useful, and have paved the way for the reliable forces on


the ground, which are the Peshmerga forces, to achieve a lot of victory,


the last of which has been retaking In addition to over 25,000 square


kilometres that have been liberated since last


year. where Kurdish Peshmerga forces went


there together with the Kurdish with the help of the US air strikes,


and helped to bring about There's more that you would like


the West to do, though, as well? You could do with more weapons,


for example, correct? We have been asking


for more weapons, ammunition, equipment,


training and capacity-building, because this has been a tough war


and a costly war. Since last year,


sustaining this war has been costly in terms of human lives,


but also in terms of resources. That's why we have been asking


for heavy weaponry, ammunition and equipment


for the Peshmerga forces and lethal and non-lethal equipment to be


provided for the Peshmerga forces. One of the things we've been told


in our debate here, and everybody seems to agree


on this, is that for air strikes to work, there has to be a ground force


that can finish the job. Now, there's a dilemma here,


because actually, the Kurds, the YPG, the Syrian Kurds,


not far from Raqqa. The head of the snake,


if you like, of Isis. many people say it's the best army


nearby. And yet many people in Raqqa, the


Sunni Muslims, will not welcome the If, for example, the Syrian


opposition forces said, we would welcome some kind of


military help from the Kurds, you put up, if you like, forces to


go outside your areas, and to help take that


town out of Isis's hands? We have played a major role


in defeating Isis, and we have For non-Kurdish areas,


we have been talking to the US-led coalition as well as Iraqis


in order to prepare the ground. The same way that Raqqa is important


for Syria, Mosul is important for Iraq, so we talk about


the Iraqi battlefront, we are ready to play our role having stated very


clearly who does what and where the in going further towards


these non-Kurdish areas. It's doable, but there needs to be


an understanding, and a political understanding


and an agreement between the forces We have got some Peshmerga,


the Kurdish Peshmerga, They will be ready to play a role


in the fight in Syria as well, and there would be cooperation with


the Syrian democratic forces There has to be an effort


on the ground in order to bring all


these forces who are against Isis Minister Bakir, thank you


very much for talking to us. Yesterday's drama continues to have


reverberations within the Labour Party, where the new kinder, gentler


politics is having a rough week. While some suggest that party


politics is a distraction from the real issue of military


action, Labour MPs themselves keep talking about bullying


and the threat of de-selection. The Corbynite Shadow Chancellor,


John McDonnell, suggested on the Radio 4 Today programme this morning


that there was unpleasantness from some on both sides of the argument,


but most attention is on the tactics of those who've been against war


directed at those in favour. John Sweeney went to visit


Walthamstow, the constituency of Stella Creasy - one of the MPs


who says she's been targeted. Where does Democratic arguments stop


and intimidation begin? Labour MPs who voted for bombing so-called


Islamic State in Syria are asking that question. If Hilary Benn


wonders what the strange whirring noise is, it's his father turning in


his grave. Well done, murderer. So why is Sweeney standing in the


middle of a roadworks in Walthamstow, you may well ask? As


well as the vote on bombing Syria this week, something else happened,


it happened here, and it is a potential sign of trouble ahead not


just for the Labour Party but the British politics as a whole.


Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy is right in the line of fire. Her north


London constituency has a lot of ethnic minority voters and far left


activist. They came to her Labour Party office on Tuesday night. They


said, to stage a vigil. From what I saw, it was very much a peaceful and


respectful protest. It was a free vote, so she has a right to follow


her conscience? She has a right to do that, absolutely, but we live in


her constituency, and her constituents are disappointed to see


Gucci isn't representing our views in Parliament. If there was a vote


to deselect her, would you deselect? I believe she doesn't


represent views of her constituents and the local Labour Party. After


Stella Creasy voted for bombing, local councillor Azema mood


suggested that any MP who supported the killing of innocents should face


reselection. I have spoken to the counsellor and he said he couldn't


talk to us as he was at Heathrow, Eddie Gunter recommend anyone else.


He said the people who are against the vote to bomb IS in Syria are


lying low right now. -- he couldn't recommend anywhere cars. As the RAF


began striking Syria today, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and MPT Tom


Watson is issued a statement together. One senior figure is


calling for a new code of conduct. I am worried that social media may be


poisoning politics as people who are spelling abuse and bile, bullying,


it is just not conducive to the way we should do politics in this


country. Because people are sitting behind a keyboard, they think it is


OK to add extra vitriol to the political point they want to make.


In the end it will just deter people from becoming part of politics.


There needs to be a code of conduct, clear roles


There needs to be a code of conduct, bullying and abuse will just not be


tolerated. The Labour MP for Bermondsey received a tweet showing


three knives. They thought they could compel me to act in a


particular way, and that was very unfortunate, and it did lead to some


level of intimidation. That undermines democracy. Stop the


Warsaw and poor power sees things differently. -- stop the war


spokesman Paul power. It is not tweet that kill people, it is bombs.


It is not e-mails that kill people, it is missiles, and that is the real


issue here. There isn't a stop the war office in Raqqa. Obama himself


said Russian bombs will free terrorism. I don't think British


bombs are any different. What is at stake here is freedom of conscience


in British political life. Ashworth.


Shadow Cabinet minister Jonathan First, though, let's talk to one MP,


Diana Johnson, She was sent an e-mail which claimed


she would lose her seat if she voted You did vote against air strikes.


Where you bullied? How do you know that you were not influenced by


those kinds of threats? I was in the middle of a consultation with my


constituents, and I received that e-mail saying that if I didn't vote


the right way, as they saw it, they would have a vote of no-confidence


and to deselect me. I wanted to call that out immediately, because I


didn't want that kind of leading e-mail but I received, and other


e-mails that went to other MPs, to be kept quiet. I wanted to get it


out there to say this is not a tactic that will influence me. I am


going to look at the evidence and what the Government are saying and


come to a judgment. It seems to me in tenures as an MP, I have never


had an e-mail like that before, and I have never seen the level of


vitriol and abuse that is an social media, but also as you were just


describing with Stella, that level, that attempt to bully MPs, this is


something that has happened recently. Have you had insults or


threats from the other side, from the pro-war lobby saying that now


you have voted against, you will be deselected? No. When I consulted my


constituents, I had a balanced response, people with views on


either side. But in a sensible, reasonable way. And one other


thing, I think there is a particular issue about the way women MPs are


being targeted. Some of the offensive language use, words I


cannot repeat on the television, but also words like hang and which --


hag and witch, and this has been building for some time, and Jeremy


Corbyn himself has said it is not acceptable. We need more than words,


we need action now. Andy Burnham's talk about a code of conduct is one


thing, but we need a leader to be very clear to stand by the


Parliamentary Labour Party to say he gave us a free vote, and whichever


way you voted, it was done in principle. People step by their


principles, and the leader needs to reiterate that he is proud of the


PLP. Diana Johnson, thank you very much indeed. Jon Ashworth, what is


the party going to do about this? This evening, Jeremy has put out an


important statement saying he will have no truck with this kind of


intimidation and bullying that Diana is quite rightly calling out. Also


Tom Watson our deputy leader is looking at producing a code of


conduct, and I think that is an important step, so let's take it to


the NEC and discuss what that means. When you look at the three pillars


that Jeremy Kyle bin got elected upon, his mandate, one of the most


important ones was that he wanted a kinder style of latex, a more


engaging style of politics and a democratic kind. But you must be


even having to mention it, because frankly are those who will say that


while he talks of gentle politics, he has attracted in a lot of people


who didn't get the memo about kinder and gentler. I think a lot of the


people on Twitter are not in the party, but if they are, I think that


type of leading, nasty, abusive social media behaviour, this Twitter


pitchfork mob is unacceptable. We should be debating issues in the


party. I want a more democratic party, I don't want people feeling


bullied and pressured into adopting a position because of the abuse they


have been getting an social media. Let's talk about deselection. What


Diana Johnson had was a threat of deselection. We have used the word


allaying and just seamlessly gone from deselection to Twitter insults.


Is it illegitimate for a local party to say if you vote against the way


we would like to vote, we will deselect you? We have A.D. Selection


process already. So why is it unreasonable?


When your constituency party selected to be the candidate, they


are asking you to form judgments on complex, big issues. They want


someone whose judgment they like. Indeed. All Labour MPs take these


issues very seriously, such as whether to extend air strikes to


Isil in Syria. They listen to their electorate and they way up the ante


must carefully. I think this kind of idea that you don't do a certain


thing, we will push you off a cliff approach to politics is not the way


of doing things. That is not an in gauging way of doing things. What


all of this just tells us, this party is just absolutely


dysfunctional at the moment. It is completely split, and not just over


a disagreement, it is a visceral disagreement in which one lot


actually hate the other lot. I don't know if people hate each other in


the Parliamentary Labour Party. We have had a debate this week on


whether to extend air strikes in Syria, and clearly there was a


division, but the economic policy of John McDonnell, there is consensus,


and on the welfare policy, there is consensus. On the health policy of


Heidi Alexander, there is consensus. There have been split some foreign


policy this week, but when you look at domestic policy, the Shadow


Cabinet and shadow ministers are broadly united. Stay there a moment.


Voting ended about an hour ago in the much anticipated by-election


in Oldham West and Royton, triggered after the death


It is Labour's first electoral test since choosing Jeremy Corbyn


The party is defending a majority of over 14,000 - so surely it's


Joining us from the count is BBC North West's political editor,


We are going to wake up tomorrow morning to the result of this


by-election. Tell us what we might expect in terms of what would be a


good result or bad? What I can do is tell you what Labour is predicting,


and that is that they will win tonight, because they have described


themselves as confident of that. You can see behind me that the county


still going on. It will go on probably until about half past one


in the morning when we expect results. Ukip say that they also


believe they have done very well, but not enough, they think, to cross


the line. We waited to see. As you say, the majority here is almost


15,000, so the question is the extent to which Ukip is able to


narrow that gap, close the majority. As I see it, there are two


challenges here. The ones Ukip is to prove not that they can do well in


seats like this, they have proven that, but that they can actually win


them. And the challenge Labour is that with Jeremy Corbyn as leader,


can he appealed to seats like this? Old Western writing is primarily a


working-class constituency. -- Oldham West and


working-class constituency. -- working class constituency, and if


he can't succeed here, we working class constituency, and if


Thank you very much. It is extraordinary that the main


Thank you very much. It is that the main political affected to

they did take votes. We need to think about how we take that on. Our

be a superb MP if he gets elected. they seem likely to take some of,


what do you mean when you say you have to look into that? C what the


result is, first of all. In a town like Oldham, it is a Labour town so


I don't want to see Ukip doing well. If the reports come in that they are


doing better-than-expected, we will have to decide how to bond to them.


John Ashworth, thank you very much. One of the BBC's best-known


and long-serving executives, Alan Yentob, is to step down


from his post as Creative Director. He's been in the news as he was


chairman of the collapsed charity Kids Company and he'd been accused


of trying to influence BBC coverage of its affairs -


a potential conflict of interest. Our policy editor Chris Cook has


been reporting on the problems of Kids Company


and its senior team this year. And then, just like that,


the man himself emerges. Alan Yentob is best known


for his televised documentaries. He has chats with grand arts


figures. My first meeting with Jay Z, short but sweet. Isn't that Diana


Ross? But today, he resigned as creative director of the BBC because


the youth work charity he chaired collapsed in August,


the youth work charity he chaired receiving a ?3 million public


bailout. During nearly 50 years at the BBC, he made classic films like


this one on David Bowie, and served as a controller of BBC


this one on David Bowie, and served and head of television. So it is


perhaps a little surprising that it is the collapse of a charity he


supported in his spare time that is the collapse of a charity he


caused the end of his career as an executive here at the BBC. But the


collapse of Kids Company was a national scandal. The charity


received more than ?40 million of government funding, including ?7


million this year, and an official report looking into the case has


found that taxpayers have no idea what value they actually got for all


that cash. He was not a token trustee, he was


intimately involved in getting public funds, this summer he wrote


to ministers with a letter which included some ordinary claims, the


sample, he said that if Kids Company closed, there would be a high risk


of arson attacks on government buildings. And communities served by


the charity could descend into savagery. It was his efforts to


defend the charity in the BBC which have ultimately been his undoing. He


spoke with Newsnight to try to affect our output, unsuccessfully,


and the world at one, and there is something about this interview with


the Chief Executive, on Radio 4's today. It is not true, and I will


tell why, we have had audits in the last 19 years, and all of them have


been clear. Here is something you cannot see in that footage, that


interview took place in that room there, the studio where the today


programme is being broadcast, and this is the cubicle, where the


producers and editors in control of the programmes it, they control the


length of interviews, for example. Alyn Yentob came in and stood in


this cubicle, he did not say anything, he waited until he went


outside again to do that. -- Alan Yentob. MPs think that this was an


abuse of his position at the BBC and when he was asked about that, he did


not -- they did not feel his answers were straightforward. You position


yourself with the producer in the box... I'm sorry, I do not know why


you heard that, she was being interviewed, I was outside, I was


not with the producer in the box. Allegation is that you are not in


the studio with her but you were the other side of the glass with the


producers. Yes, I was. So you inhibited the producer! You have


been giving a very misleading answer... Alan Yentob will stay on


as a presenter of the art show, Imagine, and as the chair of BBC


films, he is stepping down as an executive, and the BBC trust, the


governing body, feel enough is enough, they do not need to look


into his behaviour any further, they have asked for a senior member of


staff to look into outside interests among BBC staff. He says he resigned


for the sake of the BBC, and so this is quite a moment, he has been


integral enough to merit a joke in W1A... See what happens in here...


No, that is something else. Even resigning from a ?180,000 a year


executive job will not end the saga, for one thing, that select committee


report is going to come out early next year, and it is expected to be


savage. STUDIO: Here me is Steve Hewlett,


media journalist and presenter Why has this happened now? Nobody


understood, there has been mounting incredulity, I had a cabinet


minister say to me, why is that man still there, why has he got a job? !


Once he intervened with the today programme and Newsnight, the


conflict-of-interest, which you might think was latent, became


apparent. There has been mounting incredulity. The reason for today,


we discover this afternoon, the BBC trust has an editorial standards


committee, there has been a formal complaint about Alan Yentob, from


somebody, we do not know who, this person has appealed to the trust to


look at this, and the first part of the process is to say, is this an


appeal that we will hear? They have decided not to, because they think


it is not worth it. One of the key reasons they say they are not going


to hear the appeal, there are a number, they say the editorial


integrity of the BBC was not impacted, they see no basic


contradiction between being the chair of Kids Company and involved


with the BBC in that way. The key thing is, since he has never stood


down, it is not worth the trouble. You do not have to be some kind of


criminal on the to think that he has stood because otherwise there was


concern is about the trust enquiring and coming to a conclusion that


would be unfavourable for him. -- Kremlinologist.
