Oh dear, oh dear...

Mr Blair:

-on 25 February: "(Saddam) continues to believe his WMD programme is essential both for internal repression and for external aggression.

"The biological agents we believe Iraq can produce include anthrax, botulinum, toxin, aflatoxin and ricin. All eventually result in excruciatingly painful death."

-on 18 March: "We are asked now seriously to accept that in the last few years-contrary to all history, contrary to all intelligence-Saddam decided unilaterally to destroy those weapons. I say that such a claim is palpably absurd."

-on 8 July: "I have absolutely no doubt at all that we will find evidence of weapons of mass destruction programmes."

Now he appears to accept there might not have been weapons, only "programmes" - a position which he has been working towards for some time - and that the intelligence may have been flawed.

Oh dear.

Mr Bliar:

-in June 2001: " we will not introduce top-up fees and have legislated to prevent them"

-in January 2004 the Government Higher Education Bill passes its second reading with the aim of legislating for top-up fees.

Oh dear. Would you trust this man?
