Subject: RE: BS: So anyone going on this march?(28th UK)
Re your comments about relative prominence of fox-hunting and Iraq in the press. McGrath.
1)There is a fantastic coverage of anti-Bush sentiment in the British press.
2) The hoo-ha between the dog-hunters and the pro-cyanide gassers can hardly be laid at the door of the pro-hunt marchers. They didnt start the controversy, it was the gassers that proposed the ban.
3)A lot of people who dont want the war wont be marching because they dont want to improve Saddam's hand in the current poker game:they want him to lose the game, and avoid the war.
