    Elfyn Llwyd: “I’ve not shown it to anybody to try, because I, frankly, I didn’t want to be in any position where I was accused of undermining anything that was going on at the time,” he told interviewer Andrew Neil.

    What utter tripe! Presumably there is nothing  going on at THIS time which he could ‘undermine’?

    Llwyd has not shown the “memo” to anyone (like even his own lawyers in his failed Impeach Blair nonsense?) because the memo means nothing that we don’t already know and is likely already in the hands of Chilcot. He is doing nothing other than trying to take advantage of the witch-hunt on Tony Blair. He is not alone in this vain enterprise.

    Memo ‘shows Blair Iraq war deal with Bush’

    The leader of Plaid Cymru’s MPs has said he has a memo showing Tony Blair and George Bush struck a secret deal to invade Iraq a year before the 2003 war.

    Elfyn Llwyd told the BBC’s Straight Talk he had written to Iraq Inquiry chair Sir John Chilcot to say he would be prepared to hand the document over.

    Would that be THIS Elfyn Llwyd? The one whose party and co-nationalist party used their EXPENSES – aka OUR money for legal advice to impeach Tony Blair? The one whose dirty dozen got such damning and foolproof advice from their lawyers that they dropped their Impeach Blair efforts?

    He said the memo, which is marked “Top Secret and Confidential” contradicted statements made by Mr Blair.

    Mr Blair previously told the inquiry he made no “covert” deal with Mr Bush.

    Mr Llwyd, who in 2004 launched a campaign to impeach the then prime minister for misleading Parliament over the war, said he could not be specific about what was in the memo, which he “believed” was American in origin.

    “I’ve not shown it to anybody to try, because I, frankly, I didn’t want to be in any position where I was accused of undermining anything that was going on at the time,” he told interviewer Andrew Neil.

    Expenses: On the one hand – on the other hand

    Guardian – Four parliamentarians to be criminally charged with “fraudulently claiming expenses”. Two to five year prison sentences are possible, perhaps as many as seven.

    I make no apologies for this, but I am again in the minority, presumably. I think this expenses furore was a storm-in-teacup, if a very effective storm. It was got up by the Torygraph for party political reasons.

    I have no opinion as to the assumed “guilt” of the three MPs and a peer facing expenses charges. As I often repeat here – no-one is guilty of anything until proven so.

    The only exception I EVER make to that general rule, is to publicly counter such as the nationalist MPs who make constant charges of guilt or of chargeable wrongdoing, ad nauseum, to another highly respected individual. One who has not been arrested, charged or tried for anything.

    Therefore I conclude that as of today the Welsh & Scotish nationalist MPs are guilty as hell due to their admitted (after being uncovered) use of expenses to try to bring down MY Prime Minister with MY money. Treacherous behaviour for which they have NOT been reprimanded far less charged.

    Whereas, the three weddings and a funeral … MPs and a Lord are innocent as the day is long.

    TBC.

      According to Plaid Cymru they’ve got a smoking gun on Iraq, a memo which they’ve had for years if this is so why haven’t they said so before being so anti blair themselves. this somehow doesn’t ring true.

      & if it is so damning why won’t they say what is in it or at least who wrote it a memo from which only 2 people took part in Bush & Blair

      nice post margaret, I tend to agree, especially the comment re: that “smoking gun” hmmmmm. Will we ever know the truth?

    3. (David) Laws unto himself on expenses? « Tony Blair Says:

      […] Naturally the latter was hardly referred to by our feral beasts. Yes, it is instructive that this intended coup against the British state was never questioned by the press, though it was by me here and here and here and here. […]
