Chisholm, Zinser, Galloway, Blair



Malcolm Chisholm, Scotland's communities minister, declared his opposition to the Iraq war by grabbing a megaphone outside his office and denouncing the British decision to go to war.

Mexico City, MEXICO June 7, 2005 -- Adolfo Aguilar Zinser, the Mexican ambassador to the United Nations who took on the Bush administration during its pressuring of the UN Security Council prior to the invasion of Iraq, was killed in an automobile crash in the state of Morelos on June 5.


On April 22, 2003, the Daily Telegraph published an article describing documents which the paper claimed had been found by its reporter David Blair in the ruins of the Iraqi Foreign Ministry. The documents purport to be records of meetings between Galloway and Iraqi intelligence agents, and state that he had received £375,000 per year from the proceeds of the Oil for Food programme. Galloway insisted that the documents were forgeries, and pointing to the questionable nature of the discovery within an unguarded bombed-out building. He instigated legal action against the newspaper. On December 2 2004, Justice David Eady ruled that the story had been "seriously defamatory", and that the Telegraph was "obliged to compensate Mr Galloway.


An article in the Daily Telegraph, 27 June 2005, referred to allegations that Tony Blair is 'unfit and drinking.'

In talks with the reporter, Caplin said the health of Tony Blair was in "dire straits".

She said that the prime minister was drinking more alcohol.
