It means patient, difficult diplomacy, working with partners we may disagree with.”Many Labour MPs want a free vote on military action but a conference vote would strengthen Corbyn’s position.Angela Eagle, Shadow First Secretary of State, said the Shadow Cabinet stance on Syria will be a “collective decision” either way.Labour’s Conference Arrangements Committee will now decide whether the motion should be approved for debate at the Brighton conference which begins on Sunday.The Syria debate is just one flashpoint that could highlight deep divisions in the frontbench and the wider party over military action and economic policy.Another emergency motion, due on Monday, to vote on whether to oppose the renewal of the Trident nuclear weapons could also prove divisive.Corbyn, a vice chairman of CND, is a lifelong opponent of nuclear weapons.
