Above is a link to the initial assessment of the contents of the Chilcot report from the BBC web site.

So proud that I stood with Charles Kennedy and opposed this unnecessary war where so many lives were lost. Shame on those Labour MP’s who voted for war and a Tory Party which followed Blair’s troops into the lobby to vote for war.

Surely every MP who voted for that appalling war must feel utterly ashamed of themselves today. I still recall Tory MP’s calling Charles Kennedy every rude name under the sun for his anti-war stance. He was a brave man who sadly did not live long enough to see the report which has vindicated his view.

RIP the Iraq war dead, our political leaders let you down badly and created the instability in that region that still haunts us today and will do so for generations to come.

Here’s a link to Lib Dem Leader Tim Farron’s speech in the House of Commons today:-

    Don’t forget in Sefton the Labour leadership enthusiastically backed the war and the Lab Leader, now MP, repeated refused to revise that opinion even as the evidence mounted. I think their tribal loyalty to Labour clouded their judgement and even when a significant number of Lab MP’s rallied against the war the Sefton Labour Leadership stayed loyal. I doubt they will make an appropriate apology.
