Brown must explain failure to stop Blair going to war in Iraq – Davey

After former Foreign Office minister Clare Short’s remarks that in the build-up to the Iraq War, Gordon Brown was ‘marginalised’ and ‘preoccupied by other things’, Liberal Democrat Shadow Foreign Secretary, Edward Davey said:

“As Chancellor, Gordon Brown had the power and the opportunity to intervene to stop Tony Blair invading Iraq. Instead he signed the cheques for this foreign policy disaster.

“Gordon Brown had an effective veto – he must explain his failure to use it.”
