In England when a PM has lost favor, his own party makes a vote of no 
confidence and seeks to replce him by running in Parliamentary elections under a new 
party leader.  Pete could very easily oppose Blair and still support the 
Labour Party.  Their system lends itself to this sort of thing.  Therefore, I 
suspect that Pete supports Blair AND Labour, and the war.
