RUSSIA EXPERT Hilary BENN
in the form of "shadow" Minister for foreign Affairs Corbin chose a fairly well-known politician And expert ON RUSSIA 61-year-old Hilary Benn.

Benn will have to "face" in Parliament with the Minister of foreign Affairs Philip Hammond ON such key issues As the situation of refugees in the European Union, the future of NATO, the situation in Ukraine, the fight against " Islamic state ". How radical will be labour's policy In the socialist Corbin - At the moment the main question. Corbin played for the UK's exit from NATO, for charity towards migrants And laid the blame for the crisis in Ukraine on NATO And the United States. After a Few days it is expected the debate in Parliament ON the issue about the strikes ON the positions of terrorists "Islamic country" in the Syrian Arab Republic. Corbin was going to act very quickly against the continuation of these strikes.
FORGET ABOUT the past
Corbin has demonstrated its nezlopamjatbost and appointed Shadow Minister of internal Affairs of his former rival Andy Burnham.
Corbin election of a new leader of the opposition scored 59, 5%, Burnham became the second, but scored only 19%.
The main opponent of the "shadow" of the head of the Ministry of internal Affairs will become the interior Minister Theresa may. Administered by the Ministry of internal Affairs are, for example, migration policy.
for the position of shadow health Minister, previously held by Burnham, appointed 40-year-old Heidi Alexander.

In the weeks ahead about what to do with Northern Ireland will remain a key to the British government, and, therefore, one of the main topics of discussion in Parliament. Kakeru is expected to discuss the situation with Theresa Villiers, Minister of Affairs of Northern Ireland.
The cause of the political fall in Northern Ireland confirmed information about the fact that the terrorist organization " Provisional Irish Republican army ", which is historically linked member of the ruling coalition party " Sinn FEIN ", continues to exist And was involved in the deprivation of life of the former member of the "Provisional IRA" Kevin Michigan.
WHO IS MR. MCDONNELL AND WHERE ARE THE WOMEN?
Shadow Minister of Finance appointed the UK John MCDONNELL, AND the appointment of many experts And MPs of the house of Commons seemed unexpected And highly questionable.
MCDONNELL, as opposed to the new "shadow" Ministers of foreign And internal Affairs Hilary Benn Andy Burnham, Not even the most famous politician in the UK, while the post of shadow Chancellor is one of the main.
The McDonnell. 64 but He did Not occupy any positions in the government or the shadow Cabinet, although twice - in 2007 And 2010 he ran for the position of head of the labour party. In the house of Commons of the Parliament He sits since 1997 And is the leader of several cross-party groups, among them representing the wishes of the unions. Like Corbin, MCDONNELL is known for his leftist views. He was one of the parliamentarians who supported the Corbin request to participate in the election of a new leader of the labour party.
Most of the experts And the media drew attention to the fact that all the major positions in the party were held by men. WOMEN received Several minor positions: for example, in addition to "shadow" Minister of health Heidi Alexander, Diane Abbott became Shadow Minister FOR communities, Angela Eagle Minister of state FOR business, Seema Malhotra - Shadow Deputy Minister of Finance. Amid pre-election promises Corbin that fifty percent of the Ministers in his Cabinet would be female, this result is Somewhat palely. In connection with the situation in a tweet has the hashtag NotForGirls ( "Not for girls" ).
