I have to say I felt quite sorry for Claire Short. Her appearance before the Iraq Inquiry was always going to be emotional if nothing else. But she did get a round of applause for being stupid enough to be conned and bullied into one of the worst votes in her political career. As I said, I feel a certain amount of pity - which, in many respects is perhaps wrong but there we go, eh?
We already know what the FCO lawyers thought about it.
