A Win for
An Inquiry must

The Government last night saw
off a demand for an immediate investigation into the Iraq war by
a committee of senior MPs. The motion, tabled by the Scottish
Nationalist Party and Plaid Cymru, failed to inspire a
sufficient Labour rebellion to embarrass Tony Blair, whose
conduct before and after the invasion remains the biggest blot
on Labour's record. That neither weakens the case for a
nor enhances the standing
of the two main parties.
Conservatives may regard
their position as awkward because of
their vote for the invasion of Iraq in March 2003.
But much water, and blood, has flowed under the
bridge since then, notably Mr Blair's claim that Saddam Hussein
possessed weapons of mass destruction,
and the deaths of around 120 British soldiers.
Support for the invasion by no means invalidates a subsequent
call for a proper investigation into government conduct both
before and after it.
Mr Blair has wrapped himself
in the flag, saying that an INQUIRY would give heart to the
enemy and thus place the lives of our troops at even greater
risk. This is a specious patriotism suits for the purposes of a
politician who has ruthlessly foreclosed debate on Iraq in both

arrangement for the Tory eurosceptics who have had the
opportunity to put their seats at risk by leaving their Party
for UKIP when it would have changed the political scene at
Westminster at a stroke.
We don't like the arrangement
in principle but we do now have two UKIP representatives in the
House of Lords whereas if there had been any Conservative MPs
with the Integrity to put their careers at risk by showing the
UKIP flag in the
HOUSE of COMMONS
-that would have saved the
reputation of that Party.
We cannot see any real
advantage at this time of the new arrangement in the House and
many in UKIP will no doubt agree. The presence of two Ukip peers
in the Lords is an epoch making event and we hope that it will
not prove to be at the disadvantage of the party in the COUNTRY.
Our view is that if voters in a Conservative eurosceptic ward
are asked to give their vote to the so-called Conservative Party
the UKIP refuse to stand a candidate then the UKIP voters in the
area can substitute their own candidate under the
'OUT OF EU PARTY'
the UKIP lies in its numbers who VOTE for it and to dissapate
the vote to the Conservative Party when all that matters is to
increase the numbers that can vote the UKIP into the
Commons because from 35 years experience the Conservative Party
has lost all credibility to represent conservative views.
the last anaylsis the only thing that the Media or Press
understand is the total number of voters for a particular party
and it won't take long under the new arrangement for them to say
the UKIP is declining if thousands of traditional UKIP
voters are asked to secure so-called eurosceptic Conservative seats at the

The voter decides who to vote for- not the UKIP party]
We understand that at least
20to 30 Conservative seats will be vulnerable should UKIP
contest the seat. Under the present arrangements agreed by the
leadership of UKIP the eurosceptic Conservative MPs
must sign up to the 'Better off Out' declaration which says we
should leave the European Union. MPs have until July to sign
after which UKIP will start selecting candidates.
In any constituency
which the Conservative MP signs such a declaration we believe
that the local UKIP voters who disagree with this policy should
field their own candidate.
Initially, the EDP will
agree to pay the nomination fees of at least 4 candidates should
the local UKIP Constituency Party or any other eurosceptic
organisation should fail to give support in order to contest the
seat as the local members of the UKIP would have expected to
We are sure that there
will be support from the general public in the areas concerned
with the about -turn of UKIP to fund the necessary expenditure
at the time.
