I wonder how many people still think that, in Iraq, "weapons of mass destruction could be used within 45 minutes of an order being given"
I wonder how many people still think unemployment is a "price worth paying?" Norman Lamont 1992
I wonder how many people still think appeasement was the right approach in 1938? "I have in my hand a piece of paper...." Neville Chamberlain
I wonder how many people still thought that devaluing the pound in 1967 meant that "It does not mean that the pound here in Britain, in your pocket or purse or in your bank has been devalued?" (Harold Wilson)
I wonder how many people still think Clinton was a faithful husband? "I did not have sexual relations with that woman?" Or that Nixon was "not a crook?"

Please Britain, before it's too late, realise that "We will protect the most vulnerable" is a lie. Listen to those trying to tell you now. Don't wait, please.
Don't wait for the day we all look back and say "We failed and we're sorry."
