7 out of 10 Londoners say Iraq contributed to 7/7

Obviously the Prime Minister is one of the 30% that don't.

LONDON - Seven out of 10 Londoners believe the Iraq war contributed to the July terrorist attacks in the city, and nearly as many want British troops withdrawn from Iraq, according to a poll published Tuesday.

The MORI poll for the Greater London Authority found that 72 percent believed British involvement in the U.S.-led war contributed a "great deal" or a "fair amount" to the July 7 transit attacks, in which four suicide bombers killed 52 people.

Only 8 percent thought the war was not a factor, while 15 percent thought it was "not very much" of a factor.

Sixty-two percent said they wanted British troops out of Iraq; 27 percent wanted troops to stay and 11 percent had no opinion.
