Did Tony Lie?

DID TONY LIE?….The final report of the Hutton inquiry will be released on January 28. Can you feel the tension building?

Tony Blair has said he would have to resign if Hutton concluded that he lied ? or words to that effect, anyway ? so perhaps he’s feeling a bit nervous at that. My guess, however, is that Hutton will conclude that all sides acted poorly but nobody engaged in deliberate deception. And then everyone will declare victory and go home.

At least that’s what the bookies think. They put the odds on Blair resigning after publication of the report at 20:1.
