Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Tony Blair denied this document existed. Tony Blair said today “I have never told a lie. No. I don’t intend to go telling lies to people. I did not lie over Iraq.”
The paragraph above makes something plainly clear. Tony Blair lied to the public. Unquestionably. And, from comparing the full document to the summary, it looks like he may well have lied to Parliament as well – something much, much more serious. Surely even Bouncey Blair can’t ride this one out? If he is re-elected, he’s going to be facing an inquiry that, unlike the previous ones, he simply can’t fix. Unless, of course, he resigns.
The crisis at Labour HQ begins… If Alistair Campbell thought his job was almost done, he’s in for a nasty shock this evening.
