George and Blair's spin doctor face off

George and Blair's spin doctor face off
George is appearing on the BBC's Question Time this Thursday (January 20) and is set to clash head-on with another of the guests, Tony Blair's former spin doctor Alastair Campbell.
The programme, on BBC1 at 10.35pm, comes on the eve of Blair's second appearance before the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war. The British government has refused to allow crucial documents to be made public and on Monday the former attorney general, Lord Goldsmith, said that he was 'uncomfortable' about statements Blair made claiming that Goldsmith's legal opinion gave the green light for war without the approval of the United Nations.
Alastair Campbell's diaries have been recently serialised. Campbell was accused on the BBC in the run-up to the war of 'sexing-up' a dossier on Iraq's alleged weapons of destruction which may have played a major part in persuading Members of Parliament to support Blair and the war.
