by RAY FLEMING l AT the opening of the Liberal Democrats conference yesterday Charles Kennedy and Menzies Campbell both laid into Tony Blair for what Mr Kennedy called his litany of lies about Iraq. With the Conservatives mute on Iraq, the Lib Dems are the only parliamentary voice able to reflect what the British people are thinking. A YouGov poll at the weekend suggested that support for Britain's involvement in the conflict is at its lowest point. A mere 38 per cent of people now believe that the war was right and 52 per cent think it was wrong, compared with 66 per cent who supported it when the invasion began. Women are particularly critical of Mr Blair's policies, with only 30 per cent thinking that the UK troops should remain in Iraq.
