My protest letter at the 1991 Gulf War is where my political journey started. Prior to this I was not a political person at all. The first political party that I belonged to was the Liberal Democrats, I joined in 1994. A couple of days after the 911 attack, when after what I had warned against had come to pass,
I joined the BNP - British National Party.
I have paid a terrible price ( And I am still paying today ) for writing this protest letter about my country going to war. Written in my own country, in my own home town, about my country going to war.

1991 Gulf War - Archbishop of Canterbury
The Archbishop of Canterbury's
Secretary for Public Affairs
4 February 1991
Dear Mr Bryson
I write on Lord Runcie's behalf to thank you for your letter of 31 January; his term of office as Archbishop ceased that day.
Lord Runcie is very well aware of the origins of the Palestinian question. In a speech in the House of Lords on 6 September, he expressly recognised that the duplicity of British Governments earlier this century could not be ignored in any consideration of the problems of the Middle East. He has on many occasions called for a just settlement of the Palestinian question and any just settlement must certainly include 'land for peace'.
You might be interested to see the text of the speech I have referred to, together with a further speech made by Lord Runcie in the House of Lords on 15 January.
