"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Chilcot Inquiry: Jack Straw Again

Straw, Sec of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs between 2001 and 2006, is scheduled to appear before Chilcot, again, this afternoon between 2pm and 5pm.
Former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw gave some incorrect answers to the UK’s Iraq war inquiry, former UN weapons inspector Hans Blix has said.

Mr Blix told the BBC he was “puzzled” by some of the evidence that Mr Straw gave to the panel.

He said that Mr Straw had been incorrect to suggest, in 2002, that UN weapons inspectors were not being allowed access to certain sites.
"Finely balanced" legal advice plus more on Cambell's interview with Andrew Marr.

    It's our Jack. For him yesterday is tomorrow.
