Guardian – Miliband admits US rendition flights stopped on UK soil: Britain acknowledged today for the first time that US planes on “extraordinary rendition” flights stopped on British soil twice. The admission came from the foreign secretary, David Miliband, who apologised to MPs for wrong information given by his predecessor Jack Straw and former prime minister Tony Blair.

Some homegrown background if you need it:
Bloggerheads – Torture: Brown and the boy Miliband each need to grow a pair

More here on another honest mistake:
Bloggerheads – Smells like… election victory

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… Brown can go stuff himself while Straw’s in the cabinet and the torture issue remains largely in the closet.

UPDATE (22 Feb) – More from Justin, Garry and Beau Bo d’Or.

    My feeling is that we are in terms of Westminster Politics mid-term. It’s preferable (prudent?) to get one’s dirty linen out now instead of on the glide path to a General Election.

    Have you seen this week's NS?Iraq, Israel and WMD dossier's official: Blair's government set out to deceive us about Iraq

  3. Manic says

    I'm shocked and stunned.
