Jeremy Corbyn has restarted the general election campaign after Monday night's Manchester atrocity with a controversial speech which linked the rise in terrorism with Britain's involvement in foreign wars.

His supporters said the speech stated an obvious link – and Mr Corbyn emphasised that the real blame for the acts of terrorism rested firmly with the terrorists themselves.

But other politicians said he was trying to use the events of Monday evening to make a political point and win more votes in next month’s general election.

We want to know what you think. Was Mr Corbyn right to raise terrorism as an issue so soon after the tragic events at the Manchester Arena? Should we change our foreign policy to reflect the dangers of terrorism?

Or do you feel he was simply making a political point and using an appalling even to get his message across? Take part in our survey and have your say.
