Tony and Cherie Blair expulsed from Eden by Michael Sandle.
Pull out of Iraq? Mr Brown. Forget it. You can't dump 100 million pounds worth of bombs on Iraq and then offer 100 million pounds of aid for economic reconstruction in one hand while pulling out a few thousand troops with the other.
Here's the update for May from A Week in Iraq. In May 2,770 civilians were killed in Iraq, an average of 89 a day. This is roughly the same number of civilians that have been killed every day since January 2007.
The Iraqis need protection from the results of your government's actions Mr Brown. It would be immoral to pull troops out now. And what is the good of 100 million pounds? Iraq will need billions in aid. Billions and billions.
