"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

The wife of the first British soldier killed in action in Iraq talks about his sacrifice.

Before the conflict she was strongly pro-war and remains so - defending Tony Blair, who is still heavily criticised for taking Britain to war.

The pretty fitness instructor, added: "Nothing makes me more angry than when people ask me: `Do you think he died for nothing?'

"I believe he was doing the right thing because he believed he was. If he has changed one Iraqi's life then it was worth it.

"There are children in poverty out there and they have found mass graves.

"It was easy to be anti-war and to be liked for being anti-war. Steve used to call them "tree-huggers". But people don't know all the facts, I don't.

"It is irrelevant now to criticise Tony Blair. I can't stand it at all. It is history. It has happened."
