Tories want more troops… only if they win

In what you might call a ‘have your cake and eat it’ opinion poll, it turns out that 51 per cent of Tories support sending more troops to Iraq, but only if they bring peace. Consequently, should it all go wrong, these Tories will be able to say they hadn’t agreed to them being there; but if they win the war they can say they supported the deployment. At least they’re in tune with their leader who says it might be the right approach (carefully keeping open the option that it might not).

Why not try this on a local bookie: ‘I’ll have £10 on United to finish top of the premiership, but only if they win!’
