War is a Failure of Politics By Henry Disney Unashamedly political poems from an author that’s been criticised for being too hard on Bush and Blair as opposed to the likes of Hitler or Saddam Henry Disney's experience has convinced him that it is folly for the West to intervene in conflicts in the Moslem world, not the least because it leads to a surge of recruitment to the most extreme Jihad movements. His experience has also served to reinforce his Christian commitment to the rejection of war as a means of solving political conflicts.

The nation needs to know the truth, he seems to be saying. When we have put down our daily papers, Henry seeks to offer us the truth between the lines and picks up his pen to fill his empty pages with mildly waspish words, withal the headline - The Emperor Has No Clothes!"
