    Uniting Church president hits out over Iraq war, Tampa

    The retiring president of the Uniting Church in Australia has launched a scathing attack on the Howard Government and the Federal Opposition, over their handling of the Iraq war and the Tampa crisis.

    He says the nation's democracy is under attack.

    The Reverend Professor James Haire says information that is emerging casting doubts on the existence of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction points to a self created serial ignorance among the nation's political leaders.

    Professor Haire says what is emerging from the lead up to the Iraq war demonstrates yet again the abysmal moral standards within the United States, United Kingdom and Australia.

    He has described Australia's foreign, immigration and welfare policy as rotten, and says the lack of a credible federal opposition is as much to blame as the government.
