The trade-off for avoiding a shadow cabinet revolt was dozens of his own MPs voting for war, helping the Tories secure an inevitable victory.

As the night drew in on the 10-hour session, Labour’s whips were expecting around 60 of their MPs to back airstrikes on ISIS, with 66 joining the government in the final count.

Another 10 to 15 from the Tories were expected to break ranks and back Labour’s stance, although the eventual number was just seven.

Liberal Democrats Norman Lamb and Mark Williams voted against air strikes, unlike Tim Farron and the other five Lib Dems

How Liberal Democrats voted on Syria
All nine DUP MPs voted with the government. All 56 SNP members voted against bombing, as did the SDLP’s three and Plaid Cymru’s three.

Ukip’s Douglas Carswell, Ulster Unionist Danny Kinahan and independent Lady Hermon all voted in favour while the Green Party’s Caroline Lucas voted against.

Also present were the SNP, whose 54 MPs were expected to vote against bombing, and the Lib Dems and DUP who said they would back it.

But Labour’s decisions were the most controversial, with some MPs facing a torrent of abuse online for saying they might back David Cameron ‘s bombs.
Stella Creasy was left furious after hundreds of people – including vicars and imams – marched on her constituency base in Walthamstow, East London.

The moderate MP also claimed she feared for her staff when abusive callers rang her Westminster office – forcing her to duck out of the Commons debate.

She told one critic on Twitter: “Seriously do one sunshine. If I catch anyone hassling my staff I won’t hesitate to get police involved!”

Hull North’s Diana Johnson was threatened with deselection in an e-mail which warned all pro-bombing MPs would face a no confidence vote within six months.

She and Ms Creasy were also sent photos of dead children on Twitter and Facebook.

The row prompted Labour grandee Alan Johnson to launch a furious attack on the ‘self-righteous finger-jabbing’ activists in the Commons.

John Woodcock also warned his party against ‘angry intolerant pacifism’ in a combative speech which prompted a row with left-wing colleagues.

Jeremy Corbyn was forced to confront the abuse in the Commons after it was raised by Labour backbencher John Mann.

He told MPs: “Abuse has no part in responsible democratic political dialogue.”

British jets were on standby to start bombing within hours of the vote after David Cameron told MPs to crush the “woman-raping, Muslim-murdering, medieval monsters” of ISIS.

But he refused at least 12 times to apologise for branding Jeremy Corbyn and his allies ‘a bunch of terrorist sympathisers’.

Mr Coryby said the slur ‘both demeans the office of the PM and I believe undermines the seriousness of the debate we’re having’.

He invited David Cameron to stand up and say sorry – but the PM sat resolutely in his seat to jeers from Labour MPs.

    All that voted for the bombing of Syria have sold their soul. No one with compassion, empathy for those affected by war, mainly innocent men, women and children, would ever think of imposing such terror and destruction upon them. My heart is heavy, and I feel so sad about the outcome. These people do not deserve to represent the people, for truth and for justice, instead they choose to be self serving and serve privilege and power. Shame on them.

    They will ultimately pay for this. People won’t stand for the total contempt shown. We are a terrorist state. London has proved its standing on foriegn policy, diplomacy and decency is we have no sway and Democracy is an illusion.
