"French political party says war illegal, illegitimate"

From this:

Paris, March 31, IRNA -- Spokesman for French center right party Union pour la Democratic Francais (UDF) Francois Brown said here Monday that US and British attack on Iraq is totally illegitimate and illegal... In an interview with IRNA in Paris, he added that French policy was to prevent the war and continuation of mandate by the UN Security Council inspection in Iraq.
"Now that the war has started, France regards it as being illegal," he added... He said that although France is in favor of ridding Iraq of its alleged weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and calls for quick end to the hostilities, "at the same time it does not favor victory for one of the protagonists in the war." UDF has a majority in the French National Assembly and backs President Jacques Chirac and government of Jean Pierre Raffarin.

I'd like to see exactly what he said. Perhaps that should read "it does not favor victory for [either] one of the protagonists in the war."

does this mean that all UK government officials will be subject to arrest in France and handed over to the ICC?
