I am not a political animal ...

... but I think that the case remains to be made.
... but I think that the time for diplomacy and further inspections is not yet past.
... but I think that it's not a matter for unilateral action beyond the will of the UN.

And perhaps more importantly,

... but I do believe that government should be aware of what the people think.

In one of my poems I wrote:
> Alas, it can't be done. I'll stay down here

Well, now I'm persuaded that something can be done, so I'm putting on my "Don't Panic!" shirt and heading for London.

There goes the knighthood.
And GIP, by the way.
