Bridget attacks Labour’s Iraq inquiry sham
Liberal Democrat PPC for Islington South & Finsbury, Bridget Fox, has denounced Labour’s ‘independent’ inquiry into the legality of the Iraq war as a sham. The inquiry has been condemned as anything but open and independent: it will be held in private, by a closed team of hand-picked Whitehall mandarins and academics.
The Liberal Democrats are calling for a full and open inquiry into the causes of the war.
“Like many Islington residents, I marched against the war. Liberal Democrats opposed the illegal and immoral Iraq war from the start. An inquiry is long overdue, but it must be a truly public one. The Labour Government lied to us about the reasons for the war. We deserve the truth.”
