Which, if any, of the following statements comes closest to your own view about the war in Iraq?
I supported the war and I support it now: 11%
I supported the war but do not support it now: 22%
I did not support the war but I support it now: 3%
I did not support the war and I do not support it now: 61%
It would be 11%, but there's 3% of Britons who are so sick that they refused to support the war until it became particularly catastrophic. 17% approve of Blair's handling of the war, which means that 3% of Britons oppose the war, yet remain convinced that Blair is smashing. Freaks. Also encouraging to note that a large number of those who told pollsters they supported the war while the invasion was in progress now deny ever having done so, as well they might.
