Labour MP Andrew Mackinlay, who was very cross about Jack Straw's veto of the release of pre-Iraq war cabinet minutes, called the decision "breathtaking".

Is there a better word for the naivety of this news story from the BBC, about foreign secretary David Miliband's visit to Iraq?
Mr Miliband is expected to see evidence of improved stability in the region when he meets members of the newly-elected provincial council.
Interestingly, the story on the FCO website does not make the claim about evidence of improved stability. Where did the BBC get it from?
