Mood: Looking Playing: War, by Edwin Starr

George W Bush’s Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, is not welcome in England.

The British Broadcasting Corporation reported:

Demonstrators shouted “Condoleezza Rice go home” as she entered the school through a side entrance with the Foreign Secretary.

Outside the school, mother of five Rabiya Adam, 33, said the US Secretary of State was not welcome in her home town.

“When I found out she was coming here to speak to our children, I didn’t want her to preach what she did in Iraq.”

Arif Waghat, 47, a retail manager, said his 15-year-old daughter and son, 14, were at the maths and computing college today.

He said: “I’m not going to let a couple of warmongers deprive my children of their education.

My opposition is to the war. I’m basically a pacifist.”

Inside the school Ms Rice met pupils including 16-year-old Jabbar Khan.

He said she had told him she was not enjoying the cold and cloudy English weather.

As Ms Rice left the school police prevented protesters following her.

Hanif Dudhuala, a member of the community forum at Pleckgate, said: “We have been told that Ms Rice has said that she would like to talk to protesters.

“If that’s true, I would ask Ms Rice to turn her words into actions so we can raise our concerns with her.”

From ABC (USA):

One demonstrator held a yellow hand-lettered sign that read “How Many Lives Per Gallon?”
