From The Socialist newspaper, 7 February 2004

No More Lies

ONCE AGAIN lapdog Tony is following behind his master Bush. Having said last week that there was no need for an inquiry into weapons of mass destruction (WMD), Tony Blair is now setting one up.

It's clear that Blair is planning another whitewash - blaming the spooks this time rather than the BBC. But we don't want a Hutton Mark 2. We want a real investigation - not a cover-up by establishment judges, civil servants and politicians.

We can't trust them to look at the real reasons why more than 10,000 Iraqi civilians have been slaughtered; why more than £5 billion of our money has been spent on a bloody war and occupation rather than the services we need.

We want a real inquiry, carried out by elected representatives of ordinary people, including trade unions and community groups. 

We've had enough of Blair's lies and deception. He lied about WMD, he lied about introducing top-up fees and he lied about public services.

The war in Iraq was about oil, profits, power and prestige. At home and abroad Blair and New Labour are in the pockets of big business. It's time to fight back.

Join us and help build a new mass party of ordinary working people to challenge the profit-seeking warmongers of New Labour and the rest.
