When the Attorney General is not to be trusted what should a UK citizen do?

In March 2003 the UK went to war in Iraq on the basis of defective advice of the then Attorney General Peter Goldsmith.

In March 2011 the UK effectively went to war in Libya on the basis of defective advice of the current Attorney General Dominic Grieve.

In a future post I may explore the degree to which incompetence, dishonesty or other factors contributed to the defective advice of Peter Goldsmith and Dominic Grieve.

For the moment I simply want to ask what a citizen ought to do in the face of a war apparently sanctioned by the unreliable advice of the Attorney General?

A citizen with deep pockets could take legal action as provided for in the Crown Proceedings Act 1947.

However, what legitimate and effective options are available to citizens with shallower pockets?
