Satire: Cameron appoints Sir John Chilcot to lead inquiry into family’s tax affairs


Sir John Chilcot is, of course, the man who was chosen to head the inquiry into Tony Blair’s conduct in the run-up to the Iraq War. He has yet to release his report, after nearly 10 years.

David Cameron has said he will be completely transparent about his family’s tax affairs, after appointing Sir John Chilcot to head the effort in making them public.

With the prime minister under increasing pressure to reveal whether he or his immediate family has ever benefitted financially from the use of offshore tax havens, he has moved swiftly to allay any public concerns.

He told reporters, “If there’s one thing Sir John is renowned for, it’s bringing a swift resolution to matters that deeply interest the public, and I am confident this will be no different.

“Sir John will have full access to our complete tax history, and as soon as he has documented his findings they will be made available to you, the public.

“So let’s all just move on now, shall we?”

    As I noted in an earlier posting, one strategy will be to ‘kick this issue into the long grass’. And over a 10 period grass can grow very long indeed. d.

        I was being a little bit satirical myself.
        When, I did web design, one point that a designer has to grasp is that visitors do not always land on the web-site’s home page (not applicable here) and can not be sure what part of the page they land or how the viewing device will render the page – what’s above the sight-line and what’s below it.
        The viewer should take most, if not all, the responsibility reading the posting thoroughly- but sometimes life can make doing what we ought very difficult indeed.
        Good piece though Mike, fun with a big element of possible truth to it.

    he shouldnt be let off the hook. I can hear the sound of fury. Chilcot is not really the man for this job. Moving on is not an option with that choice he is either stupid or wanting to infuriate the public.

      This time I put the word “satire” right at the start of the headline. This article wasn’t intended to be taken seriously.
