Boris Johnson: If someone passes me the document within the next few days I will be very happy to publish it in The Spectator, and risk a jail sentence.

BlairWatch: We’re with you Boris. Here’s the deal. If you get it, send it to us and we will also publish it. We will also risk jail.

I’m in. If I get my hands on it, I’ll publish. Hell, I’ll broadcast it in a way that will make it impossible to shut down.

How about you?

UPDATE – BBC – Al-Jazeera seeks ‘US bomb’ talks: A senior al-Jazeera executive is in the UK to demand publication of a memo in which George Bush allegedly discusses bombing the TV station’s HQ. (via)

UPDATE (28 Nov) – BlairWatch – Bombing al Jazeera – Were There Two Memos?: We have had it confirmed by a source who is in a position to know, that there ARE two seperate memos and that the UK Government are ‘livid’ that the second one is being leaked.

UPDATE (29 Nov) – Robber Rabbit – As seen on Al Jazeera: More disturbing was the implication that the whole “Bomb Qatar” thing wasn’t simply Georgie Boy thinking aloud. Maguire is certain from his sources that the tone of the memo shows Bush was indeed not joking, and this wasn’t simply one man’s big idea. Indeed, Maguire implied that this policy idea must have been passed around high level circles in the White House before Blair was brought into the loop. If so, whose idea was it?
