The Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war will publish “the gist” of communications between George Bush and Tony Blair, but not the actual transcripts. Small amounts of quotation will be permitted if relevant to explaining the conclusions reached.
Is this enough, or does anything short of full disclosure mean there is something to hide? Will full transcripts of at least some of the documents be leaked to the media? And will the publication of the Chilcot inquiry happen, as now seems likely, just before the 2015 general election?
Place your bets now, ladies and gentlemen.
