If you believe Bliar a closet Conservative then you believe in fairy tales.

By the way that article is from 2016.

Goes back much farther than that, just the findings took so long to publish. The hearings I think were 24 Nov. 2009 – 2 Feb. 2011.
The Iraq Inquiry (also referred to as the Chilcot Inquiry after its chairman, Sir John Chilcot) was a British public inquiry into the nation's role in the Iraq War. The inquiry was announced in 2009 by Prime Minister Gordon Brown and published in 2016 with a public statement by Chilcot.
Do you think present day attitudes to this sort of thing have changed?

Yes I know when the Chilcott enquiry started, I was merely pointing out the article you gave the link to was dated in 2016.

:text-imsorry:
I should have titled it "Chilcot enquiry, Tony Blair's apologies" rather than "Tony Blair apologises" which makes it look current!
I was just looking at the similarities to today, and wondering if there had been any change in attitude.

All I can say Dreamweaver is..........at the time we went into the Iraq war there were demonstrations in London against it and sending our troops in......Bliar took a vote in Parliament about going into Iraq and he lost the vote so he decided he would have a second vote which he won, which makes me wonder what he said to those MP's that voted against the war for him to win the second vote.

As regards Syria recently, much of the public was against this action as indeed were many of the MP's because they felt there was no concrete evidence about the chemical strike or if there was an actual chemical strike there was no proof as to who carried it out.

I can only give you my opinion and that is........when America says jump the U.K. says how high. :flaming_mad
