The May election has been and gone and still we are waiting. The BBC are predicting it may take another year. The Iraq Inquiry website has all the dynamism of a headstone. Nothing has happened there since February.
This is the week Tony Blair finally stepped down as Middle East Envoy. One US official called his appointment a 'standing joke', while a British Diplomat, who resigned over the Iraq Invasion, tweeted: 'At last some good news from the Middle East'.
The news must be bad for Tony if Chilcot is taking this long to publish. But will we be allowed to see the extent of it, or are these 1,543 day less about truth telling than trying to clear up a mess.
