here an extract:
The Guardian can also disclose that in her letter of resignation in protest against the war, Elizabeth Wilmshurst, deputy legal adviser at the Foreign Office, described the planned invasion of Iraq as a "crime of aggression".

She said she could not agree to military action in circumstances she described as "so detrimental to the international order and the rule of law".

With our foreign office saying no... did Britain REALLY have a choice in the matter or are there matters in which Britain can no longer deny the US due to some shady agreements made say during the world wars?
