Is the Second Iraq War Resolution question really so relevant? 

Yes it is important that we get answers from Blair and others on the ‘Second UN Resolution’ fiasco. Even with a second resolution however backing the Iraq war was still wrong – in the famous phrase ‘worse than a crime, a blunder’.

In a sense we in this party have been let off the war hook because we could oppose the attack on legal grounds and gain essential party unity on that basis for our public advice. Would we have been so firm if we had had to oppose on the grounds that it was a stupid and wrong thing to do even if ‘legalised’?

By relying on the (lack of) UN votes to delegitimise the attack we are relying on the better political judgement of other countries representatives who prevented such a vote. It would have been more honourable to campaign against the taking of the vote and advising for a NO vote if it was eventually presented.

For my part I would have opposed the Iraq war whatever position the party took. But then I opposed the 2001 Afghan attack also.
