I read the news of our complicity in torture and cover-up – not believing what I was reading. How can we have come to this terrible place? I am so ashamed of our Goverment.
And because we know that this is a Government that misleads us when it suits them – how can we have any confidence in the Foreign Office’s denial of involvement in rendition and torture of terror suspects?
As Ed Davey (LibDem Shadow Foreign Secretary) said:
“With allegations of complicity in torture coming on top of the Iraq Inquiry’s revelations, it is painfully clear that Labour has left Britain’s reputation in tatters.
“If the Government is so sure it has nothing to hide, it should allow a judicial inquiry into torture allegations to go ahead.”
