Chilcot : the Finale

This is the big day for the chattering classes. Today at the Chilcot Inquiry the unreconciled anti-war left hopes Blair will trip up and effectively confess to war crimes, the commentariat are looking for closure – “the questions Blair must answer”, Hampstead and Islington intellectuals are looking for new material for after-dinner arguments.  Cameroons will look on misty-eyed as the maestro shows how it is done.  There will be something for everyone today. In the end, after six hours of testimony, Guido reckons Blair will walk away with his reputation unchanged. No one will change their mind as a result of Blair’s testimony today.  Nevertheless for the political classes today is the super-bowl of political self-justification.

Quote of the Day

The Daily Mirror has heard that at the shadow cabinet meeting, Nick Brown lost his train of thought so John McDonnell handed over a piece of paper to help out.

Brown: “You’re really helpful“.

McDonnell: “Yes I am. But it would be great if somebody could tell Skwawkbox that“.
