No it wasn't and it isn't and nor can I read my E Mail that way. I do believe
that we have to live in the real world and accept what help and assistance is
given to us without baying for the moon. There is no chance of getting House
of Commons support at this time AGAINST anything that UN approves of. I
understand your comment, Dermot but lets be grateful to Clare Short for what
we've got and encourage others to do the same. I am beginning to feel that
Blair's position could become intolerable.
