Iraq, Iraq, Iraq

As you have probably heard by now, the Guardian has published part of the Attorney General's advice to the Prime Minister over the legality of the war against Iraq. (I would have posted this news earlier, but Blogger was behaving strangely.)

Now the Guardian has published some analysis by Jonathan Freedland:
So what will be the political effect? It could make those angriest about the Iraq adventure angry all over again. That's bad news for Labour, which has spent much of this year trying to soothe the ire of its supporters, persuading them to "move on". Since the Iraqi elections in January, the government has been like a parent tiptoeing around a sleeping baby, hoping nothing will disturb his slumber. With this revelation, a plate has fallen off the sideboard and crashed noisily on to the floor.
