Fuck-ugly BBC Radio 4 journalist, he was effectively crucified for 'telling the truth' about how the intelligence services were politically co-opted into justifying the invasion of Iraq. However, while he was undoubtedly correct that the government had 'sexed-up' information about weapons of mass destruction, his undoing was the result of Gilligan 'sexing-up' information from his sources, thus cleverly completely discrediting himself.
