Blair and the Chilcott enquiry

Today Blair will be giving evidence to the Chilcott enquiry into the illegal invasion of Iraq. To date no weapons of mass destruction have been found and it is by no means clear-cut whether the lives of the Iraqi people have been improved.

It was the buildup to this illegal war that got me interested in what was going on in the world, and other issues such as trade justice and climate change which ultimately ended up with me getting involved with the Green Party -- I was impressed by their principled stand against the war -- in Reading and local politics.

How will Blair there today? I suspect badly... And then we will have Brown in front of the enquiry before the May elections -- assuming he doesn't call an early general election.
