Iraq war inquiry to be secret

Gordon Brown and the Iraq war inquiry

Surprise, surprise!

I guess nobody is surprised at the Prime Mentalist’s statement that the inquiry will be held in private then, other than that group of people who call themselves the Parliamentary Labour Party who bought Brown’s line last week that he would demonstrate far more transparency when it became clear that his leadership was under renewed threat. He told them he was going to change, be different, more responsive. The inquiry will meet in secret and blame no one. It will have no legal powers to demand documents, compel anyone to attend or require witnesses to swear an oath.And since it will take at least a year to conduct, the findings will come out safely beyond the date of the next General Election.

The Prime Minister couldn’t be different if he was painted in camouflage cream, we’d still see through him, no wonder the parents of South Shields’ men and women who lost their lives in Iraq are not impressed, John Miller, whose son Simon was killed in Iraq in 2003, said private hearings would be marred by “lies and deceit”.

  2. Excellent Photoshop as ever, Curly!

    For “secret” read “nothing that might damage New Labour”.

    As in….”no truth that might damage New Labour”.

    Bastards…..

  3. Completely agree with you on this Paul/Guido, but is it really necessary to call Brown the ‘Prime Mentalist’? Seems like your post would be better without that phrase.
