agreement between the European Commission and the US federal

Other organisations, large and small, are being encouraged to adopt and pass the resolution. Ayrshire North Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, meeting in Irvine on the 26th August 2003, called for the Prime Minister to stand down in recognition that his action caused and continues to cause unnecessary suffering against the will of the British people. Hindsight and the Hutton enquiry, they say, show his professed reasons for supporting the USA in an unpopular, illegal and immoral war were unfounded.
