Bad news for the British Poodle
http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/politics/article191949...

Demands for an urgent Commons debate on pulling British troops out of Iraq were stepped up last night at Westminster after an opinion poll found that 62 per cent of voters support a withdrawal before the country has been made stable.

The poll dealt a blow to efforts by Tony Blair to shore up his strategy of keeping British forces in Iraq "until the job is done". In talks in Downing Street with the Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister, Barham Salih, Mr Blair again said Britain had to "hold its nerve".

But a CommunicateResearch poll for The Independent showed a majority rejects the Bush-Blair strategy and wants British troops to be pulled out sooner rather than later, even if Iraq is not stable.

The extent of the collapse of confidence on Iraq was underlined by a second poll finding, that showed 72 per cent now say the war in Iraq is "unwinnable".

(end snip)

Hold it's nerve = staying the course? Tony didn't get Smirky's memo? That phrase is sooooo yesterday, literally.

3. He's not a poodle, he's a True Believer in the neocon agenda
And that scares me :scared:

And it doesn't matter how much of the electorate want out. Do you know how much of the total electorate voted for Labour at the last election? 22%
