Impeaching Blair

Downing Street has warned of "very real consequences" for British troops in Iraq if MPs defeat the government over calls for an inquiry into the war. That's not true. It will be "very real consequences" for Blair and his inner court of weasel wordsmiths! The Commons has just begun debating a Scottish National Party and Plaid Cymru call for a probe into the war and its aftermath, backed by the Lib Dems. The Tories say they may also support it if ministers do not agree to hold a broader inquiry once troops leave.

Can it be done? I have my doubts. But some parliamentarians have had enough. This is down for debate in the House of Commons.

CONDUCT OF GOVERNMENT POLICY IN RELATION TO THE WAR AGAINST IRAQ That this House believes that there should be a select committee of seven honourable Members, being members of Her Majesty's Privy Council, to review the way in which the responsibilities of Government were discharged in relation to Iraq and all matters relevant thereto, in the period leading up to military action in that country in March 2003 and in its aftermath.

If they do get a Select Committee formed, then Blair's had it. All the sneaky stuff he and his former fixer, Alastair Campbell, got up to will come out. Those honourable people who did work for him but have felt ever so guilty since will what a clean breast of it. They will be happy to sing their tunes to the committee! Then we will see that all the stitch-up reports he concocted will start to unravel and the TRUTH will reign supreme at last!

I do hope.


An inquiry will only alter how history portrays Emperor Blair (which is still a good enough reason to have it). Lets face it, by the time its finished, Blair will have resigned anyway, and if the Bloody Sunday Inquiry is anything to go by, Gordon Brown will have left office too.
