Iraq war inquiry is mocking justice

Published 18/08/2015

KINDLY allow me to say to David Cameron that the Chilcot inquiry that was set up to look into Tony Blair's handling of the Iraq war has not only turned into a farce, but is making a mockery of Britain's so-called justice system.

It is criminal that people like Reg Keys, who lost his son, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Keys, in the Iraq war are still none the wiser about the reasons for this war - even six years after the enquiry commenced.

There is no justification for this. Those who are holding up the enquiry by not co-operating with Chilcot and his team should be issued with a court order to attend without further ado.

In conclusion, I say to Chilcot that people like me are disgusted at your handling of this inquiry, where millions of the taxpaying public's money is being wasted.
