I vividly remember taking a call on my mobile during the Anti War protests. It was from my sister, finishing her training at Sandhurst. The contrast between our life experiences couldn't have been any greater.
The marches meant a lot to me and ultimately I was ashamed to have supported a government that was so ill-prepared to listen to its people. But the one event I remember above all was the French Foreign Minister, Dominique de Villepin addressing the United Nations security council, making a heartfelt and eloquent plea against the case for war.
