Last month the Information Tribunal directed that the cabinet minutes dealing with the meetings which decided that we should go to war in Iraq should be published. It seemed to be a sensible decision particularly as there have been many accusations that the war in Iraq was not just ill-advised it was actually illegal. Here was a cast iron opportunity for the Blair government to absolve themselves from any accusation that what they did was underhand, unnecessary and cost the lives of hundreds and thousands of people.
You see when we read these minutes we will then understand why we went to war and that all those who think that Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Jack Straw, John Prescott are actually war criminals will be proven wrong.
Just one problem, the Justice Minister, Jack Straw, who was Foreign Secretary at the time of the meetings has refused to allow the publication of the minutes! Yes folks good old Jack doesn't want you to know why we went to war. He wants you to believe that he is good old honest Jack, man of the people, but not man enough to trust democracy.
Don't worry Jack old man we expected nothing less and now we know all we needed to know. You had better hope that the BNP never get elected!
