Arms And The Man

If this turns out to be true it's the most cheering piece of domestic news for years.

It's both wonderful and amazing to think that the investigation into this criminal waste of money began while Blair (one of the arms dealers' biggest friends) was still in power. And it says a heck of a lot for the Treasury (backed, one assumes, by Gordon Brown's not inconsiderable clout) that they were able to carry out an unfavourable review of Tony's pet without TB closing it down as he did with the Serious Fraud Office's investigation into BAe's corrupt dealings with the Saudis.

I'm starting to like the Brown regime already.

"I'm starting to like the Brown regime already." It's still early days for Brown, but I can't help thinking that that comment probably says a lot more about Blair than it says about Brown...
