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
