Brown in good company

The BBC reports that 72% of British people believe there should be an inquiry into the invasion of Iraq. Presumably these include Gordon Brown, who promised an inquiry a year ago but is now reluctant to get it going.

Perhaps the question that the BBC should have asked was whether an inquiry should begin this summer, after the majority of troops have been withdrawn.

The BBC also shows a remarkable, if uncommon, ability to put two and two together:
There were fresh calls for an inquiry last week after documents showed that intelligence chiefs were urged to make a key dossier on the Iraqi threat as "firm" as possible.
