Victory - again

The Information Tribunal has rejected the Foreign Office's appeal against the ruling that it should release the secret John Williams draft of the Iraq dossier. I first requested this document under the Freedom of Information Act in February 2005?

The New Statesman is claiming victory, having done a lot to pursue the issue, and Ian Dale, who invited me to make a film when at 18 Doughty Street, is also claiming credit.

I'm not arguing.

Chris, I am not claiming credit at all. The work and achievement is all yours!

Four years. Four bloody years!

This will add to our understanding, at any rate.
