    Seems to me Pete is like most Brits. On board with the war but skeptical due to the media as to how its going now. He still supports Blair though which is good.

    The Who have influenced far more people than moore will ever.

    I'll have to be sure and check out-"Michael Moore is a Big Fat Stupid White Man" Should be great :clap1: :clap:

    Sounds like Pete is standing his ground for his principles and probably money. He apparentlydoesn't like the way Moore does things. Good for him. I know it's suprising to hear one that isn't too far to the left. They are the only ones I ever hear from.

    Alas, me too as I grew up with the Who and really like Townshend. I read the support for the war initially and for Blair still, but the bottom line was that the money offered for the rights was too little.

    Im not so sure most Brits are on board with the war, I hope so but that's not what I have been hearing. I am happy Pete is supporting Blair. I have to say that although Blair is a liberal, I have so much respect and admiration for that man for bucking the tide and standing shoulder to shoulder with the US. I was in England when he was running for office against John Major, and I was at a rally for him. At that time I had no idea what kind of man he really was, God can that man give an eloquent speech. He is gifted.
