Another expert reveals his knowledge about Saddam's WMDs

Nigel Jones, who plied his trade in IT before being elected as MP for Cheltenham, gained unique access to knowledge about the nature of Saddam's missile programme long before Dr Kelly carried out his official research. He made it known to his party leader when the question of invasion came up in the Commons. Charles Kennedy must surely have passed the evidence on to fellow privy councillors, yet both the major parties (with honourable exceptions) chose to believe the unattributable assertions presented by Tony Blair.

[Later] Dutch Liberals consistently doubted the pretext for going to war, too.

It is good to see that their Lordships are generous in their recognition of the contributions of both Robin Cook and Charles Kennedy to the resistance to the Iraq adventure. Paul Tyler reports here.
