A public inquiry is the honourable act, Gordon

I understand that Gordon Brown is coming under increasing pressure, not least from military chiefs(!), to hold in public at least part of the inquiry into the Iraq war.

Brown Error Number One was to announce a non-public inquiry

Brown Error Number Two will be to announce a half hearted, part public, part secret inquiry.

Brown could have been credited by holding a wide ranging, fully public inquiry. But his instincts to mistrust the public prevailed.

If he agrees a part public inquiry he will attract no plaudits. Supporters of Blair and Bush will be angry; those opposed to the war will remain outraged.

Do the honourable thing, Gordon. Allow a full public inquiry into whatwas done in our name.
