News Petition Goes Live


B73ztYrIAAAsABM.pngAn online petition urging the Government to release the Chilcot Report before the general election has been launched and you can sign it here.

The Chilcot Inquiry was commissioned in 2009 to establish the facts surrounding Britain's invasion of Iraq in 2003, and concluded in 2011 having interviewed over 100 people including the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Yet, four years later, the report has still not been released, and it now appears that the political establishment intends to keep it under wraps until after the General Election on May 7th.

UKIP's Defence spokesperson Mike Hookem MEP said: "We are calling on people to sign this petition today because we all deserve answers. The war in Iraq, which led to our new enemies ISIS, cost around £10bn in public money, and far too much in blood. The British public must know, immediately, why we got involved in the first place, and why it went so horribly wrong."

UKIP leader Nigel Farage said: "It beggars belief that here we are, four years after the end of the Chilcot Inquiry, still waiting for the report. It smacks of an establishment cover-up, and one which I suggest the British public will see right through."
