For this position

Quotes-start.png "On May 5, 40 years after I first took out a membership card, it will be possible, for the first time since the 1945 Labor victory that threw out the Churchill Tories, to vote Labor on a point of principle. Sixty years is a long time to wait, but the struggle for Iraq has decided the matter." Quotes-end.png

Against this position

Quotes-start.png "The arrogance, carelessness with the truth, and flawed judgment he showed when misleading Britain into war is part of a pattern that goes all the way back to the Bernie Ecclestone affair, in 1997. This is the politician who promised to be 'purer than pure', but who has been up to his neck in sleaze ever since, from Ecclestone to the Hindujas and Lakshmi Mittal to Geoffrey Robinson.
