The British media wants you to think it's learned the lessons of Iraq; it hasn't...
Excellent - again. Few journalists come out well. Even fewer politicians. Except one: Charles Kennedy. His vile treatment by the Sun (Ed Rebekkah Brooks) for courageously and forcefully opposing the Iraq invasion would have done Der Stürmer proud.
Thank you, Mic. I eagerly await all your newsletters. You bring a real depth of research to everything you do.
Excellent read Mic 🎯
"And then I realised: it was exactly this – ridiculous deference – that helped get Britain into that terrible mess in Iraq."
I'm in a group titled SHAC and I'm regularly frustrated by the amount of obviously downtrodden folk whom appear to treasure this insidious deference in the face of repeated injustice.
Why, because, accepting that British laws are a minefield open to the interpretations of lawmakers, and their paymasters. This is simply unthinkable for too many. 🙃
Very very good
