Mother of soldier killed in Iraq war withholds income tax in war protest

Pat Blackburn, the mother of the 34-year-old soldier who was killed in a
helicopter crash south of the Kuwait border on March 21, 2003, is to appear at
Weymouth County Court next week charged with non-payment of £15,000 income tax
in a case brought by the Inland Revenue.

Mrs Blackburn has withheld paying her tax bill in protest over the Iraq war.

She has refused to clear the debt until Tony Blair either discloses the
details of Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction or resigns.
