Blair says we do not need a committee to determine whether or not we should have gone to war.
To do so is not only wrong - because the decision is a matter for government and it is neither wrong nor right, but a matter for the government and the government will be judged at the polls - but it is profoundly undemocratic because no one elects the committees.
And the BBC coverage is woeful. All they want is an attack on Blair and they are disappointed Howard of the Tories is not bothering and the Liberal Democrats are left with their weak bleating to turn back time and make everything chocolate covered sultanas again. In fact they had talking heads b labber over some incendiary work by Blair on Iraq itself, ending with "I think it was the right decision, I think removing Saddam has made the world a safer place, I think we are better placed now to deal with WMD and I think the British people should be proud of what we have achieved."
Goo wog name.
