Hutton five years on

Peter Oborne has a good long piece in the Mail today saying that five years on (yesterday) from the Hutton Inquiry, we still haven't been told the truth about the war based on lies.

As every day passes, Lord Hutton's judgment that Tony Blair and his leading officials were men of integrity looks more and more flawed. Five years on, his verdict has fallen to pieces. Britain now urgently needs a full-scale inquiry into the causes and prosecution of the Iraq War.
Unsurprisingly, Oborne says that:

The first step should be the publication - strenuously resisted by the Government - of minutes from two key Cabinet meetings in the build-up to war.
