Pants on fire, yet again

The High Court has ruled that the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) acted unlawfully by dropping a corruption inquiry into a £43bn Saudi arms deal. BBC News.

If I remember correctly Tony Blair had a big hand in stopping this investigation and most people at the time would’ve guessed there was something a bit dodgy surrounding it to say the least.

It now transpires that the SFO and Tony Blair gave in to threats from Saudi Arabia. Surely this is as bad as giving in to the terrorist threat in allowing some one from outside to influence governmental and judicial procedure or practice.

Once again we have been lied to by the then Prime Minister Tony Blair.

I have a feeling those in the opposition parties and the activist groups who have bought this successful action will not allow it to fade away, and rightly so.

No one is above the law of this land, not even this government and its ex ministers.

I would be happy to see some one in the dock because of this, it probably will not happen, but this could prove to be yet another one of those legacy’s the ex PM and his ‘New Labour’ government would wish to have been forgotten.

I'll take a look, thanks.
I gather the US smuggled a shite load of them Saudi Arabs out of the US following the attack on the Twin Towers, probably to prevent deals going tits-up!

I'll have to thank yellowdog granny for thinking of me.
Bush and Blair sure seem to be on the same page. I don't like what Bush has done to our country, I hope Blair hasn't damaged yours to the same extent.
