Law - Not War
The Eden Government has taken Britain into war. And Tory Britain stands condemned at the bar of World opinion.
Britain's friends in the Commonwealth have expressed either horror or dismay.
The Americans have expressed stern disapproval.
Eden was elected to office on a promise to support the United Nations. He emphasised his support in speeches, on leaflets, and in broadsheets. Mr. Selwyn Lloyd. Tory Foreign Secretary, did the same.
Now they have broken their U.N. pledges — almost the only Tory election pledges to remain intact. They have flouted and defied the U.N., they have shocked Britain's friends, and they have deeply divided the nation.
Millions of Britons feel ashamed that they are involved in aggressive military action against a small weak nation. Most people feel that the United Nations was the body to deal with conflict between Israel and Egypt.
The Labour Party is conducting a campaign for
LAW NOT WAR
It wants to see hostilities which should never have begun, brought to an end as soon as possible. The object of the campaign is to secure an end to the fighting or the resignation of the Conservative Government, or both.
