Is the inquiry a mirage?

In my first piece for the Independent's Open House blog, I ask, "Is Gordon Brown’s promised Iraq inquiry a mirage?"

The government has been keen to spin expectations of a troop reduction from Iraq next year but won't say whether this will allow the inquiry to go ahead. The suspicion is that it will use the long term presence of a few hundred troops to delay the inquiry for as long as it is in power.
