In a remark that could seal New Labour’s fate, David Miliband whinges “you’ve punished us enough about Iraq”.
I don’t have to reply. The rotted corpses of tens of thousands of Iraqi women and children speak, and always will.
Miliband is a really nasty piece of work. He has continued to fight through the courts to try to cover up Britain’s involvement in torture. Miliband has also intervened to prevent the Freedom of Information Act release, and I am tipped off from within the FCO will continue to do so until after the election, of one of my Ambassadorial telegrams from Tashkent complaining about our use of intelligence from torture.
Ed and David Miliband. Among British diplomats, David is referred to as “The evil of two lessers”.
