    This could be Camerons only option to obliterate the past Governments and say “I stood up to help Libyans, the past government helped hold them down.” However this enquiry will have about as much clout as the one for Dr Kelly or Iraq. Mr Blair will put on his white suit and stand by the river Jordan and swear it was because it was the right thing to do. God told him to be strong…. How wrong he is.
    I hear Blairs next pitch is on evangelistic television where he will pray for you for a few dollars more.

    Another nail in the coffin for Bliar’s reputation. So much for Bliar’s ‘ethical’ foreign policy.However, those Islamist fanatics have only themselves to blame as they spread their nasty, twisted interpretation views of their religion. Unfortunately, Bliar followed policies that were morally tainted leaving a stain on Britain’s reputation abroad. Hopefully, Lord Gibson’s enquiry, ordered by DC, will go some way to assuaging the countries honour.

    Another report, just read cover up, what sick people that run our country, also it’s been mentioned that Dave’s party, received £16Million support over previous years from the PIG (Pro Israeli Group),and these people want the right answers for their cash.

    The inquiry committee scheme is little better than a bucket of white wash.

    The terms of reference will doubtless be designed to minimise the exposure of Cameron, and his friends, including the M##, in the hope people will forget all about it.

    Bad news, Cameron, your government will have to deal with the castration of Kenyans, a very hard one to justify on ANY grounds.

    How convenient it is that just about the whole of one set of witnesses has been eliminated in his illegal Libyan War. Now the scum that work in M15 and M16 will be busy working over their computers eliminating all traces of agency dealings with Libya, not that you would expect them to tell the truth anyway.

    The UK has become just as scummy as the US and Cameron is one of the biggest scumbags ever elected. Can’t figure out why anyone believes anything that comes out of this idiot’s mouth.

    Rendition; that must be an American term for kidnapping. I don’t know how long it has been going on, but Bush went at it as if it was going out of fashion, and Blair who was so far up Bush’s backside he could touch his tonsils was complicit. These two men have brought shame on the two great nations they represented and should be tried for crimes against humanity. There is such a thing as the rule of law in every country and other nations should respect the integrity of sovereign nations, their laws and boarders. American consider it their right snatch these people, transport them around the world, hold them incommunicado, torture them and then claim the moral high ground that they are fighting terrorism. If fact they are just thugs and no better than the people they are fighting. America need to take a long hard look at why these people detest them so much and are prepared to go to such lengths to attack them. Perhaps if America lived with their own boarders and stopped invading other countries, they might be better tolerated in the Arab world. Rendition is just another example why people in the Arab world despise America.
    As for Cameron and this government, to continue the illegal practice that the last government were complicit in just brings shame on Cameron, his government and the people of this country. We must stop this practice at once, and respect other countries laws, boarders and the people in other sovereign states and not go kidnapping them.

    “Jack Straw, who was the Foreign Secretary at the time of the events
    mentioned in the letter, said the previous government strongly opposed
    the use of torture and denied turning a blind eye to it.”

    Of course they didn’t turn a blid eye, they were staring it in the face at the time and liked what they saw it seems.
    Jack you’re a fooking disgrace to the human race.

    “It is important that nobody rushes to judgement…”

    Unless of course they are looters and there are bonus political points to be scored.

    Well considering MI6 could only engage in this with ministerial approval, it’s a bit of joke for the government to be calling for an inquiry into their own actions. They know it’s being going on and it’s rather insulting of them to try and tell us otherwise.
    It’s also a cop out to try and say it was something that went on under the last government, seen as MI6 co-operation with the Gaddafi regime went on right up untill six mounths ago and they would have been made aware of the actions of the last government as soon as the took power.

    ‘Mr Cameron said: “My concern throughout has been to deal with these
    accusations of malpractice so as to enable the security services to get
    on with the vital work they do. And because they cannot speak for
    themselves, let me put on record once again our enormous gratitude for
    all they do to keep our country safe.”‘

    What a load of bolix that is.
    They might not be able to speak for themselves, but they know how to torture and kidnap people. Even ones that are supposed to be protected by this country.

    It’s a shame that nobody will be held to account for this.

    There’s an amazing whiff of hypocrisy about all this. We’ve never employed saints to fight or spy for us. All we’ve ever done is to build political systems intended to give our leaders plausible deniability when our dirty washing is exposed to public view.

    The latest horrifying episode in the unravelling story of Britain and our lack of accountability from the Mother of Parliaments to the police, the press, the bankers, the Secret Service, the army and the list grows longer every day… Perhaps we need to follow the example of the Libyan rebels and write our Constitution in some coherent form and ensure that it is watertight and anything that operates outside of our laws and resolution is legally actionable. We are all equal before the law and the rules of accountability recognise no exceptions. We seem to have become this small archipelago floating aimlessly, without a moral compass or clear direction in any sphere nowadays. Dispiriting, but riotously true, I would suggest.

  • Can we please try to keep to the subject of the article folks?

    Thanks!
