Letter to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and Geoff Hoon: [25 Feb 2003]

We fervently hope your motion is defeated on Wednesday.

There is NO CASE for war and only a perversional reading of the UN Charter gives it the right to sanction a pre-emptive strike.

As for a "moral case" Robbie Burns said it all:

"Ye hypocrites! Are these your pranks?
To murder men and give god thanks?
Desist for shame! Proceed no further;
God won't accept your thanks for Murther."

(Robert Burns, On Thanksgiving for a National Victory.)

NO WAR on IRAQ - END SANCTIONS - and let the Iraqi people get rid of Saddam if they so desire.

Turn your attention to the real menace and source of terrorism (both individual and by the Israeli state) - the Israel/Palestine problem; Israel has ignored UN resolutions for almost 50 years.

Letter to Keith Simpson MP and other Norfolk MPs (re Iraq debate 27 Feb):

It is highly important that you vote against the Government in the division on Wednesday.

You will find the 10 good reasons for doing so explained in the letter from the Rev. Dr. Mike Bossingham in today's EDP so I will not repeat them.

NO WAR - STOP THE SANCTIONS - Give the Iraqi people to settle their own Government.
