Anger As Chilcot Delays Iraq Report Until 2016

Post by feelthelove on Thu Oct 29, 2015 7:34 pm

The Prime Minister has urged the chairman of the Iraq Inquiry to speed up publication of his report after it was announced it would not be released until next summer.

David Cameron said he was "disappointed" after Sir John Chilcot wrote to inform him he would not be ready to publish the much-delayed Iraq Inquiry report until June or July.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, Sir John says the "text of the report" will be ready by April but it will not be ready for publication until a date in June or July 2016.

The report, which will have taken seven years to complete and will run to two million words - nearly four times the length of War and Peace - has suffered significant delays and cost the taxpayer £10.3m, which works out at around £5.15 a word.

Absolutely disgusting. How unbearable for the families that are waiting for this. He is dragging his feet because there must be some information in there that would enable someone to take Blair to the Hague on war criminal charges.

How much you want to bet that more delays will happen?
