As I see it there is one weapon we have - to ask ever MP or campaigner who sends a leaflet, knocks on the door what their position is on sanctions and bombings of Iraq - and then make one;s felings clear. 'we the people' vote (or don't)for them and pay their salaries. best felicity a. |

I do agree that any statement should be a statement of fact but, more then this I am begining to question what can be acheived by challenging the sanctions and the bombing useing argument. People have a nasty tendancy to be stuborn MP's included and I suspect that most arguments serve only to reinforce the pro sanctions position which they (are told) to hold.
