Can you guess what David Aaronovitch’s answer is?
I grant that Iraq has made us all a little mad. On either side of the argument many of us struggle to maintain our composure. Even so, I do not know what is more depressing: that a former long-serving minister should repeat this bizarre nonsense without checking it; that, yesterday, twice as many readers should be published supporting this garbage as those criticising it; or that one letter should claim that Meacher has simply said what “many have always known”. Ugh! To give credibility to this stuff is bad enough, to “know” it is truly scary.
