From The Socialist newspaper, 7 February 2004

We demand a real investigation Ė not a Hutton Mark 2

Extract From a Socialist Party Leaflet

We want an inquiry that actually looks 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 union and community groups. 

We have had enough of Blairís lies and deception. He lied about WMD, he lied about introducing top-up fees and he lied about public services.

A war for oil and power

Blair and Bush and their cronies unleashed a war not for Ďliberationí in Iraq, but for the imperialist plunder of Iraqi resources, particularly oil

They have created devastation and terrible suffering. They should be driven from office.

For a new mass party

But the alternative is not Blairís capitalist critics, whose concern is not for the British or Iraqi people but defending their own system and preventing more Bush-style adventures in the future that could endanger capitalismís stability. 

The real alternative is a new mass party of the working class, pledged to oppose militarism by establishing a new democratic socialist society.
