Remarks at the launch of Scott Lucas’s book The Betrayal of Dissent
We need new international laws to tell us whether or not force is justified.
We can’t rely on the Establishment to topple Tony Blair: we must do it ourselves.
Superpowers act out of self-interest, not morality.
Bush and Blair did everything necessary to prevent the outbreak of peace
He made the moral case for war – but backs a dictator who boils prisoners to death
The UN should not become the dustbin for America’s failed adventures
There is no more dangerous notion than that of America the Divine
The war crimes case in Belgium illustrates the folly of Blair’s belief that the US is interested in justice
The US is preparing to use banned weapons in Iraq
Every likely outcome of this war is a disaster
Does the US support the Geneva Convention or doesn’t it?
A humanitarian disaster is engulfing Africa as cash is poured into the war with Iraq and its aftermath
Those who support the coming war with Iraq refuse to see that it has anything to do with US global domination.
We must oppose this war as we have never opposed one before
Taking the government to court may be the only means of holding Britain and the US to account for their plans to invade Iraq
Blair is appeasing Bush partly in order to get a share of the world’s diminishing supplies of oil
For the past eight years, the US has undermined disarmament in Iraq
The United States is now our foremost enemy. We must begin to treat it as such.
“If any of this gets out of this room, I’ll kill the person responsible”
