Brown lets us down on Iraq Inquiry

Gordon Brown had the perfect opportunity to put clear blue water between himself and Tony Blair. However, rather than announcing a free-ranging, public inquiry into the war in Iraq, he has chosen to conduct the enquiry behind closed doors.

This has already provoked outrage amongst both supporters and opponents of the war.

Brown himself had, until now, escaped largely untouched by the bitter recriminations of this ill-fated and illegal venture. Yet because of his lack of judgement he will be seen as a co-conspirator and apologist for the war.

What is more, if he bows to the intense pressure that he will no doubt come under, he will be seen as weak and will not benefit from what could otherwise have been seen as a positive and brave mood designed to draw a line under the worst decision of New Labour.

Oh dear, Gordon. You have really let us down.
