[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] 20, New Road, Hailey, Oxon OX29 9TZ 8th January, 2003 01993 775080 Dear Sir, Your editorial entitled Poison and Iraq is excellent. Many of us feel like the Gaderene swine, following Bush and Blair over the precipice of war. The media have a strong responsibility to record the opposition of the British people to any war. It is still not too late. Without British support, Bush will have large problems convincing the American people that war is justified. Most of us on both sides of the Atlantic know that the talk of Saddam being a threat to any of us is just propaganda. I was very pleased to read the article 'Fools rush in to war' by Brian Sewell. The people I know are almost overwhelmingly opposed to war with Iraq and completely unconvinced by the claims made by Blair and Bush. The 'Holy Fool' in Downing Street should remember that not only are the British people opposed to his war but the people of the world(except Israelis and some Americans) are opposed and the world's churches are opposed( except Judaism and the wild reaches of US 'Christian Right') Yours faithfully, Christopher Leadbeater _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
