Why is Britain silent on the threat of war?


What is wrong with you Brits?

Has Blair brainwashed you all?

Or is this not a 'professionally relevant' topic?

My impressions from the results of your opinion poll on the potential war are that:

lyou support a war;

lyou don't think it has anything to do with you; and lthis is indicative of general British feeling on the subject.

Or is it that some of you hope that there may be some big juicy commissions coming your way after the devastation that war inevitably results in?

Either way, shame on you. It doesn't matter one iota what walk of life you come from, this situation affects us all. Indeed, active representation from educated people and those in the public eye matters a great deal.

Here in Australia, you may be interested to know that support for the war is very low from all spheres of society, including the professions.

Another sure sign that the apron strings that tied this country tightly for so long to Britain are definitely quite loose.

I heartily recommend that you protest against the war. In this way you can hold your heads high in the future, individually and collectively as an organisation and as a nation.
