Blair's smoking gun - concrete evidence of lies to press and Parliament

05-10-2004 17:37

On 18 September 2004, the Daily Telegraph published extracts from a series of newly leaked documents from the Cabinet Office. The full texts of these documents were not reproduced. Unlike the Hutton or Butler reports, the full text documents provide far stronger evidence not simply of falsehood by omission, but of substantively untrue statements made consciously to press and Parliament; and of the government's explicit intention to use (and arguably abuse) the UN/weapons inspection route to provide a legal pretext for pre-decided regime change, not as a route to peaceful disarmament.

Blair Has Lost His Grip, In the end we’ll give in to terrorists, so why not now

02-10-2004 17:29

Two salient facts define the national political predicament this autumn. The first is a growing sense of disquiet about Tony Blair. Experts often speak of the lack of ‘trust’ which shows up in opinion polls. But there is more to it than that. People are beginning to sense that there is something rum about this Prime Minister, and that he is no longer quite 16 annas to the rupee.

Paul Robinson says the Tories are so frightened of challenging Blair on the war that their favourite think-tank will not tolerate dissent.


At the time of writing, the hostage Ken Bigley, so far as we know, lives. While he endures his ordeal, the Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary said that they could not negotiate with his tormentors. That would be to ‘give in to terrorism’. Those — who must include Mr Blair and Mr Straw, as well as the rest of us — who want so much for Mr Bigley to live must rely on intermediaries such as the two eloquent Muslims from Britain who have gone to Iraq to do what they can.

Stills from the film
The British Court of Appeal is hearing the case of 120 coach passengers who had their human rights violated on 22 March 2003 when they tried to attend an anti-war demonstration. The passengers were prevented from attending the demonstration by police who searched the coaches, then turned the passengers away from the legal demonstration, and illegally detained the passengers for more than 2 hours. This is first time the Human Rights Act has been used in Britain to challenge a police detentions of activists.
