Iraq Campaign Father Vows to Fight On

The father of a military policeman killed in Iraq vowed today to continue his fight for justice for British servicemen lost in the conflict after failing to unseat Prime Minister Tony Blair. Mr Keys’ campaign gained world-wide attention with his bid to oust Mr Blair from his County Durham constituency.

Reg Keys, whose son Tom, 20, was one of six Royal Military Police soldiers killed by an Iraqi mob as they manned a small police station in Al Majar Al Kabir on June 24, 2003, said he was considering impeaching the Prime Minister for going to war.

The 52-year-old anti-war protester polled 4,252 votes (10.3%) in Sedgefield to finish a close fourth behind the Liberal Democrats – with a campaign that was launched just five weeks ago.
