Nosemonkey's EUtopia

In search of a European identity


Why do I get the feeling that today’s PMQs could prove significant in a couple of years’ time when we get a few more leaks of classified documents? Oh, I know – it’s this explicit denial from the Prime Minister:

“Nobody is talking about a military invasion against Iran or military action against Iran. We are taking diplomatic action through the UN security council.”

One single bit of evidence of planning meetings discussing strategic missile strikes or the like against Iran prior to 19th April 2006 – Blair has lied to parliament. (And, please note, if they haven’t had some talks of this kind they’d be – from a strategic point of view at least – almost as insane as they would be to try and invade the place…)
