THE MOTHER OF ALL WHITEWASHES!
THE IRAQ WAR SO FAR:
CAUSE: Britain accused Iraq of failing to meet UN resolutions on weapons of mass destruction. Intelligence reports about Saddam's arsenal later found faulty.
RESPONSE: Britain contributed 43,000 troops to mainly-American 300,000-strong force. Claims that a UN resolution justified the invasion widely rejected.
DURATION: Iraqi resistance crushed within six weeks but power vacuum has led to six years of bloody insurgency. Longer than the second world war.
DEATH TOLL: 179 British servicemen and women. 4,310 Americans. Iraqi deaths put at 100,000.
WOUNDED: Likely to top 5,000. More than 3,500 British troops have been treated in field hospitals since 2006.
COST: Estimated £6.5billion, and rising, so that Blair could prove how MACHO he was.
VERDICT: Poor post-war planning allowed insurgency to take hold. UK forces lost control
GORDON BROWN'S SOLUTION
AN ENQUIRY IN SECRET
NO AUTHORITY TO CALL WITNESSES
NO BLAME TO BE APPORTIONED
NOT TO REPORT UNTIL AFTER NEXT GENERAL ELECTION
IS THIS THE TRANSPARENCY YOU PROMISED BROWN?
HANG YOUR HEAD IN SHAME YOU LYING BASTARD!
