Freedom Of Information - Vetoed

"Look! There's hardly any blood on my hands!"

Jack Straw, who was the Foreign Secretary at the time, has vetoed the publication of Cabinet Minutes relating to making the decision to start an illegal war with Iraq as Dubya's poodle despite the decision by the Information Tribunal that these should be made public because of the overwhelming public interest and the importance of the decisions.

Jack The Weasel now presides over Justice.

Odd how you never see any of the British architects of the Iraq War welcoming home the coffins, isn't it? Or pictured with the mutilated survivors?

Nothing to hide, then, obviously. Murdering shit probably discussed their great success at getting away with murder, again.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

So we'll never know just why Robin Cook decided to abandon this criminal cabal.

Look, I am second to nobody in my detestation of this ghastly cabal. But is it seriously to be expected that Cabinet Minutes should be published so soon after the event?

All that would happen is that, if no minister knew whether he was able to offer an opinion in confidence, no discussion would take place in the minuted meeting, it would all happen around a sofa somewhere.

Surely the present arrangements are preferable?
