Help in the campaign to ask Blair tough questions

January 27th, 2010

From today’s email: a message from ’38 Degrees: People Power Change’:

Dear Philip,

Pressure’s building for Tony Blair to face tough questions about Iraq this Friday. Over 10,000 of us have now signed up to call for the panel to question him properly.

We’ll make sure the people asking the questions know exactly how many of us want them to get tough. We’ll be making a noise outside the building, and we’ll presenting a final copy of our petition to every panelist inside. We’ll have billboard adverts around central London demanding tough questions. We”ll even present them with a “get tough” cake showing the number who’ve signed. The more signatures, the more powerful our message.

Can you help make the petition as big as possible by Friday morning? Please forward this message to your friends and ask them to click here to quickly join in by clicking here:

If we work together we can make sure it’s massive by Friday morning – we’ve got two more days to get as many people as we can to sign the petition. The more of us there are, the more pressure we can put on the panel members to ask tough questions.

We know what real questions look like, we’ve suggested thousands and thousands including:
When did you promise George Bush you’d back an invasion?
When did you really realise Saddam Hussein probably didn’t have WMD?
Did you cover up advice that the war might be illegal?
Why did you ignore the anti-war protests by the British people?
Millions of us opposed the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Millions more of us trusted Blair at the time but later felt betrayed as WMD failed to materialise. Friday morning is a chance for us to hold Blair to account for his decision. Please help bring as many of us together as possible to demand Blair faces tough questions, by asking your friends to get involved.

Please forward this e-mail now and ask your friends and family to join in:

  1. It would be good to ask him whether he would still feel it was the right thing to do to remove Saddam if his own wife and children had been killed in the invasion.
