Opposition Grows to Second Gulf War
- Labour heavyweight and leading Druid curse Blair on Iraq

THE NEXT Archbishop of Canterbury is to present a petition today urging Prime Minister Tony Blair not to go to war with Iraq

The petition to be handed in at Downing Street by Dr Rowan Williams states that an attack on Iraq would be immoral and illegal. Before Blair dismisses the petition as the work of jelly-kneed handwringers, he might want to know that Dr Williams is not only the next head of England's established church but also a fully fledged Druid.

Williams has recently been made a member of the Gorsedd of Bards, the politburo of Welsh Druidism. Though it is true that modern day Druids eschew the evil spells and wicked curses of their ancient counterparts, Blair may be forgiven for checking the contents of his tea cup when the pair meet to hammer it out over Iraq.

Polls of British people also reveal strong opposition to an anti-Iraq mobilisation with one out today showing 52 per cent against Britain joining the US in a second Gulf War. Meanwhile, the list of heavyweight figures to come out against war with Iraq is growing by the day, the latest being former Labour Chancellor and Secretary of Defence Lord Healey, who hints Blair may lose his job if a new desert storm is unsuccessful, though he probably doesn't mean due to Druidic poisoning.
