The BBC has done a World Wide 'Poll' and says the majoraty of people are aginst torture. Strangely it does not list the actual words of the question asked. I don't aprove of torture and I have said before we had a BBC TV program where a US university Proffesor of Law was arguing that if Torture must be used then it must be legalized as in Elizabethan England. There a high offical signed a document authorising torture in the national intrest. The yanks have now approved use of 'Mild' torture in their War against Terror. Same old story who wouldn't approve if the lives of their nearest and dearest was at risk. john I probably would much as I detest the thought.
