Ahh. Young Love. I'm sure you've heard the story of the two holiday sweethearts who ran away from home to be together? Touching, isn't it? You can tell they're young and immature, though, because of all the places in the world to run away to, why would you choose Milton Keynes?
I've been watching the Hutton Inquiry with a lot of interest over the last few weeks. Yesterday was the last day of the first half of the Inquiry, and Geoff Hoon, who I can never say I really liked, looks increasingly like he lied (or had selective memory failure) at the inquiry about his role in the naming of Dr. Kelly - a point-scoring strategy in the government's battle with the BBC, which lead to Kelly's death. I look forward to the explanation he gives when Hoon inevitably gets recalled to the inquiry.
The debacle in Iraq won't go away either. It's finally sinking in to the US and the UK that they've perhaps bitten off more than they can chew, and France and Germany are leaving them hung out to dry on the Security Council, now that they're desperate to get the UN involved. You reap what you sow.
