MPs are set to demand the minutes of an extraordinary cloak-and-dagger summit in London between British, American and Libyan spies held three days before Mr Blair announced that Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was surrendering his weapons of mass destruction programme.
A deft bit of slight of hand there, gets the porridge wogs out of the frame along with McBroon, stitches up the hated Tone (who isn't going to really get any pain out of it anyway) and makes it all look like it happened years ago and was "nothing to do with us, innit?"
I surprised they didn't manage to finger Thatcher for this. As it were.
And remember I said somewhere earlier (I can't remember where I said it, though!) that the American response was all a bit muted?
Nine top-level MI6, Foreign Office, CIA and Libyan officials were present for the negotiations at the Travellers Club. The revelation that two senior American officials were present risks causing embarrassment to the White House, as Washington has made clear its criticism of the release of Megrahi by the Scottish government last month.
No shit, huh?
Still, there's no fucking way this was just cooked up to help BP. That's one major consolation we can all take pride in. This was all about humanitarian concerns.
