Can Blair survive this?

"When the Prime Minister discussed Iraq with President Bush at Crawford in April he said that the UK would support military action to bring about regime change [my emphasis], provided that certain conditions were met: efforts had been made to construct a coalition/shape public opinion, the Israel-Palestine Crisis was quiescent, and the options for action to eliminate Iraq's WMD through the UN weapons inspectors had been exhausted."

A couple of weeks ago, The Sunday Times published a Cabinet Office memo from July 2002, from which the above excerpt was taken. Initially ignored by the media, the story is slowly beginning to gain momentum. There is now a website dedicated to the memo. Yesterday's Sunday Times carried another story about it.

When Saddam didn't rise to the bait, we dropped more bombs on him.

This war will not go away. I think that Blair will go first, followed by Bush. Not tomorrow. But eventually.
