(JP: 'As you might imagine there has been an amazing amount of hypocritical nonsense about the, well the, recent war in Iraq. In my own opinion, it is a continuing war and will continue for a long time in one form or another and the newspapers of course, have been interesting to say the very least, some of them are desperate, some of them are pro-war, others are extremely anti-war. One of the anti-war newspapers have been the Daily Mirror, and they been partly instrumental along with War Child and one of the record labels in releasing an LP called Hope, which is for the children of Iraq and I'm sure it was well intention and so forth, but I have misgivings for these things and it features a lot of tracks by people which you might not be particularly interested in, I don't know, Travis is there, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, George Michael, Lee from Blue and so it goes on, but there is rather unexpectedly for I was concern, a track from New Order on there and it's their version of Jimmy Cliff's Vietnam.')
