Inquiry needed into Labour involvement in Gaddafi’s big tent - Davey
"We will need a far wider-ranging inquiry to really get to the bottom of this," said Liberal Democrat Shadow Foreign Secretary. Commenting on the news that Jack Straw will be questioned by the Justice Committee over the release of Abdelbaset Ali Al Megrahi, Edward Davey said:
“Jack Straw has many questions to answer on his involvement in this issue, so it is right that he comes before a Parliamentary committee.
“But with daily revelations about the role of Brown, Mandelson and Blair in murky dealings with Libya, we will need a far wider-ranging inquiry to really get to the bottom of this.
“Parliament must set up a far-reaching investigation into recent UK-Libya relations which will call all those ministers involved to account. We need to get the truth from all the Labour figures who have been drawn into Gadaffi’s big tent.”
In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
