Look at him. He doesn’t know about religion, power, or oil, but he does  know Love.
nThis site is dedicated to every new born baby in the world; in recognition of the horror that millions suffer whilst George Bush and Osama Bin Laden amongst others write themselves into the history books.

 

Unlike most anti-war sites we look forward to debate. We encourage those that disagree with this campaign to email their disapproval. Letters with less than 1000 words maybe published on this site.

It may seem trivial and pathetic to campaign for the return of a bust. And in a way it is. But what we are campaigning for is neither trivial or pathetic. 

The bust in question is a representation of Bush and Blairs arrogance. They connived to lift what is a National treasure the same way as they connived and ignored protocol in the United Nations prior to war with Iraq.  

In effect the campaign seeks to give Bush and Blair their rightful place in history. It allows the general public a method and focal point of peaceful protest at this arrogance and aims to bust Blair, Bush and Bin Laden.

When the IRA launched a vicious campaign of bombing innocent people. The British didn't invade Ireland or America which were awash with IRA sympathises. Why? 

In general it seems common sense that to do so would generate more sympathises and more terrorist. With more terrorist their would have to be more mainland security. With more security more restrictions on basic human rights such as freedom of movement.  With a downgrading of human rights more opposition and more terrorist. Leading to more security and more....

Do not criticize your government when out of the country. Never cease to do so when at home” 
Winston Churchill

Three things that happened in 1946

 

1.George W Bush was Born

 

2. At Westminster College, Fulton, USA, Churchill's famous 'iron curtain' speech lay the foundations of the Cold War 

 

3. Jacob Epstein sculptured a bust of Winston Churchill, which currently sits in the Oval Office of the White House.

This site is actively campaigning for the return of Epstein's bust of Winston Churchill which was loaned to President George W Bush by Prime Minister Tony Blair on 16th of July 2001.

Winston Churchill, we aim to show, has been used to justify the wholesale exportation of war. The bust is seen as symbolic of Bush's obsession with Churchill; an obsession which is manipulated for the purpose of justifying death and suffering throughout the world.

With a good few revelations this site touches on politics, art, religion, and history.

The whole site revolves around a letter which was sent to the Government Art Collection (GAC) offices in London, on the 20th of October 2004. It aims to put the case.

Why Blair should go now.

When the UN declared the war in Iraq illegal. The British Prime Minister ultimately became a War Crimes suspect. A suspect that currently selects which Human Rights he will adhere too. 

I don't get it. If Tony Blair is a war crimes suspect what gives him the right to dictate what he will do and when he will leave office? 

If MP's on all sides refuse to rock the Bush/Blair boat; either for career reasons or  national unity; who is representing the enormous amount of people that detest this relationship? 

Shouldn't war crimes suspects be on trial not  in office; If for nothing else than to prove there innocence.
