As always it is what poltiicians believe they did, said or heard that gets published

That is rarely the truth - self delusion is just one quality of a successful politician

That's why I love Hansard - what gets printed is what they said - whether they like it or not! And it's perfectly clear in Hansard that Blair misled the House over Iraq's WMD whatever gloss he might wish to apply later - after all if he ends up with Bush before the Hague, Hutton Truth will not wash there even if it holds sway here.
