If you're going to set up an anti-war party do you think its wise to call it Spectre given that whenever I hear the word Spectre i think of evil meglomaniacs with fluffy white cats http://www.mjnewton.demon.co.uk/bond/spectre.htm

    It's also reminiscent of the opening words of The Communist Manifesto.

    Maybe they should call themselves AWF ver.01 beta ...

    On another matter, if you had to fight in the near future, would you actually know who you were fighting for and who against?

    A lot of people join the army cos its the best employment opportunity available to them. In areas of high unemployment and shit schools, it can seem like the best route out.
