Next week Gordon Brown is due to take questions from the Chilcott Inquiry (note my choice of words because I do not believe he will answer questions). Assuming that he doesn't call an election between now and then, what should the committe be asking him? So far the questions have been pretty lame and formulaic, no-one has been grilled properly. So can ARRSErs help? Some starters: Q. Did you fully support Tony Blair in his decision to go to war and accept collective cabinet responsibility? Q. Do you accept full responsibility for the actions of your department whilst you were Chancellor? Q. Did you or your department put financial constraints on the conduct of operations? Q. Why did you (or your department) obstruct and delay procurement decisions and challenge spending at every opportunity? Q. Why did you cancel the support helicopter replacement programmes? Q. Do you accept the principle that funding for wars should be paid fully from contingency funding rather than routine defence funding? Q. That was a very interesting and detailed answer to a question I didn't ask. Will you now answer the actual question? Q. Ditto Q. Ditto Q. Ditto Q. Are you ever going to answer a straight question with a truthful answer or shall we just stop wasting our time and go to lunch?
