47. I think they were just keeping their powder dry...
"Charles Kennedy demanded that the legal advice given to Mr Blair be published after a newspaper claimed to have new evidence about the war's legality.

If not, voters would be "perfectly entitled" to view the election as a referendum on the war, he said. "

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/vote_2005/frontp...

and...
"Conservative leader Michael Howard has said the election gives Britons a last chance to pass judgment on Tony Blair.

Mr Howard, speaking on Breakfast with Frost, said he believed Mr Blair lied to win elections and over the Iraq war. "
