    Default Another Iraq enquiry - this time of Blair's decision

    Cross-party support for war probe
    There have been four separate inquiries into different aspects of the Iraq war, but there has yet to be an inquiry focusing on the way the government's decision to join a US-led invasion was made.

    SNP leader Alex Salmond says 107 MPs have signed a Commons motion calling for a special committee of seven senior MPs to review the decision-making process. "Members believe Blair misled Parliament and the people he was elected to represent."

    The MPs include 49 Lib Dems, 26 Conservatives and 20 from Labour. Ex-Tory Chancellor Ken Clarke and Lib Dem deputy leader Sir Menzies Campbell are among those who have signed. The motion was tabled by former Tory Foreign Office Minister Douglas Hogg.
    At last. I hope the lying barstard gets humiliated.

    Does it make that much difference, The British public will still vote for NL - Each new immigrant is a new vote for NL.

    Doubt it. Last time, the great unwashed voted for Tony first and our economic miracle second. The first is now clearly a spent force and the the second is being shown more and more to be the myth it always was.

    All it takes is for Cameron to keep up the appearance of being a good replacement (he may or may not be, but if Tony can get NL re-elected on image, so can he with the Tories) and it could all change very quickly.

    Incidentally, that's also why LibDems will go nowhere, despite being well regarded at the local government level. "Kennedy? Nice chap, bit of a duffer, drinks too much" - all totally untrue, but the perception will keep them out of the national polls.

    I doubt it will happen. New Lier supremo Blair is a lawyer, and has thus far avoided a proper investigation by launching enquiries with a narrow remit, and making sure the enquiry was led by someone tame.

    But ... he is said to hate Brown, and it is possible that his sub-conscious desire is to shaft Brown by leaving him with a tainted inheritance ... so post-election he might agree.

    Yeah those old codgers in their silly uniforms are such a pain aren't they? They seem to think we owe them something. Selfish old buggers.
