Wayne Young later went on to join the Orange People, I believe. Roger Dye and Eric Sowey were among my particular friends at that time. Their ages ranged from 15 (E H Oliver) to 18/19 (T F Naughton). At the time I was 16. High school then finished in Year 11.

Iran still a danger, nukes or no nukes: Bush

So begins the ABC News report.

US President George W Bush says Iran remains a threat to the world despite new intelligence saying the country may not be building nuclear weapons.

Yesterday a US intelligence report said Iran halted its program to develop nuclear weapons in 2003, but added that it had continued to enrich uranium. Dubbed the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE), the report represents the considered judgement of all America’s intelligence agencies.

Mr Bush says the report is a warning signal and his view that a nuclear Iran will be a danger has not changed.

“I believed before the NIE that Iran is dangerous and I believe after the NIE that Iran is dangerous,” he said. “To me the NIE provides an opportunity for us to rally the international community to pressure the Iranian regime to suspend its program.”

The US President also warns that Iran could restart its covert weapons program.

The British Foreign secretary David Miliband says the international community needs to maintain diplomatic pressure on Iran.

“It confirms that there remains a significant enrichment problem,” he said. “Enrichment of uranium being a potential source of nuclear weapons. Secondly it shows diplomacy can work and it is the diplomatic track that United Kingdom efforts are focused.”
