I am glad my MP, David Lepper, and another 138 MPs had the courage to vote against war in Iraq. Will it end there?

I hope they will think about another leader for the Labour Party.

I was impressed with the speech in the Commons of John Denham. His straightforward approach is what the public wants.

I am distressed by the terrible consequences for children and civilians and apologise from the bottom of my heart - what can I do?

Like millions, I feel shame yet I am powerless in a democracy where more say "no" than "yes".

It is our money but politicians decide without us. I say "not in my name" with many others across the world.

Would Tony Blair send his son to war to demonstrate his passion?
