I can't believe that the Government thinks its argument against an immediate inquiry into the Iraq war has a shred of credibility. It's two years since the USA undertook their Baker-Hamilton inquiry and a year since our Prime Minister promised one - in the future.
I've just left the debate on the subject in the Chamber. The Foreign Secretary praised our brave and professional troops but then proceeded to inform the House that they would be distracted by an inquiry. Indeed they are professional and wouldn't be so easily distracted.
Something to hide? I think so.
