Bloody Sunday Inquiry delay

Nice summation from shadow Northern Ireland secretary, Owen Paterson.

“This inquiry has cost nearly £200million and it last took evidence in 2005. It is quite wrong for the families and soldiers involved that it should be delayed again. March 22nd is an absurd date to publish the report as it will either be in the run-up to a General Election or during the campaign period itself."

Not much to add to that. Owen has struck the metal pointy thing rather squarely on the head.

Of course Owen doesn't have an interest in getting it all wrapped up before any Tory Government comes in.

The question the Tories need to answer is whether they'd scrap Saville and other such enquiries or continue to fund them?

It has cost two hundred million pounds? I'd best shut my trap lest I say anything injudicious.

No pun intended? ;-)

The Conservative Party will not hold any more open-ended inquiries with such loose terms of reference.
