Towards Freedom channel slammed

Shrewsbury MP Paul Marsden has condemned the US and UK governments’ decision to set up the Towards Freedom TV channel in Iraq.

The channel relays the coalition message to the people of Iraq from a Hercules aircraft circling the country’s airspace.

In the Commons last week, the Liberal Democrat MP challenged Foreign Secretary Jack Straw on the issue, saying “thirsty Iraqi civilians will not be impressed by replacing the six o’clock with Saddam with the ten o’clock with Tony”.
