War with IraqPosted by Councillor Michael Taylor,

As a Liberal Democrat, I wanted to post my total opposition to the Blair/Bush rush to war with Iraq. I also wanted to make clear the party's stance so that people in Hebden Bridge are very clear about it.
We therefore totally oppose this reckless venture and want to make our opposition clear.
On a personal note, I have now been on the London and Manchester demonstrations and have encouraged many others to do the same. We have seen a real reawakening of political activism on a scale unknown since the Vietnam War. Let's keep it up. Let's make Mr Blair and his government realise they can't go on ignoring the people.
Remember, this is a government that is squeezing local government, underfunding many public services and supporting further privatisation. Yet they can write a blank cheque to provide munitions to kill, maim and mulilate innocent people. 5,6,7,8 Spend it on the welfare state.
