One of my main concerns is about the legality of the Iraq War in terms of UK Law.
Here are some questions for Gordon Brown that I would consider as pivotal today, if I were Sir John Chilcot.
1. Do you accept that the government of Iraq was changed by force in 2003?
2. Are you aware that Section 2(2) of the Reinsurance (Acts of Terrorism) Act 1993 deems changing a government by force to be "an act of terrorism"?
3. Are you aware that the acts of the UK armed forces in Iraq in 2003 also constitute "terrorism" in the meaning of Section 1 of the Terrorism Act 2000?
4. Are you aware that in funding the military action in Iraq in 2003, which as discussed earlier is "terrorism", that you appear to have committed an offence in the meaning of Section 15 of the Terrorism Act 2000?
5. Are you aware that the penalty specified for someone convicted of a Section 15 offence is up to 14 years imprisonment?
6. Are you aware that in December 1999 during the Second Reading of the Terrorism Bill (that later became the Terrorism Act 2000) that it was pointed out to Jack Straw that UK military action in Iraq would correspond to the definition of "terrorism" in what was then Clause 1 of the Terrorism Bill? The point was made to Jack Straw by Tom King.
7. Are you aware that you have caused UK tax payers to commit offences under Section 15 of the Terrorism Act 2000 in that they funded "terrorism" in Iraq?
8. Are you aware that as a consequence of your actions, and the actions of other ministers, that the bulk of the UK military personnel who died in Iraq died as "terrorists", in the meaning of Section 40 of the Terrorism Act 2000?
9. Do you wish to resign as Prime Minister now, in view of your seeming criminal actions with respect to the Terrorism Act 2000, or would you prefer to do it later?
