The end of week quote

''As I see it, one of the most crucial issues of the day – and the means by which further political integration into the European Union can be avoided – is to pursue an campaign for a more active, effective and longer-term engagement in Iraq, staying there until we have a fully-functioning, liberal democracy.
This is not only in the interests of democracy, but in the interests of the United Kingdom itself. Therefore, Iraq, in my view, is not only the crucible of a new democracy, it could also be the salvation of the UK as an independent, democratic nation. On the other hand, a retreat from Iraq is a de facto retreat into "Europe".
