Downing Street Ordered a 'Cover Up' Over Straw's Bid to Talk Blair Out of Iraq Invasion, Explosive New Evidence Reveals
Downing Street ordered a cover-up after Jack Straw made an 11th-hour attempt to stop Tony Blair going to war in Iraq, it was claimed last night.
Explosive anonymous evidence given to the Chilcot Inquiry said Mr Blair responded to his Foreign Secretary by insisting that he wanted to go to war.
Officials at Number 10 then allegedly ordered that no record was kept of the confrontation.
The revelation will pile pressure on the former Prime Minister when he returns to give evidence to the inquiry today.'
