Does Brown have egg on his chin this morning?

with one comment

“There was no conspiracy, no cover-up, no double dealing, no deal on oil, no attempt to instruct Scottish ministers, no private assurances.”

Oh, really Prime Minister – no deal on oil?

When asked in the interview if trade and BP were factors, Mr Straw admits: “Yes, [it was] a very big part of that. I’m unapologetic about that… Libya was a rogue state.

“We wanted to bring it back into the fold. And yes, that included trade because trade is an essential part of it and subsequently there was the BP deal.”

Mr Straw also claims today that Mr Brown had nothing to do with his change of heart over the PTA, adding: “I certainly didn’t talk to the PM. There is no paper trail to suggest he was involved at all.”

I think this is what is called plausible deniability.

Of course if we’d heard the candid truth the day before Megrahi was released the story would have been dead and buried by now. (Richard Nixon wasn’t brought down by the break in, but by the cover up.)
