Mr Blair’s Poodle goes to War – The House of Commons, Congress and Iraq

Britain became a democracy in the twentieth century, but in the twenty-first it still retains a Parliament more appropriate for the nineteenth. While politics has changed out of all recognition, in many respects Parliament looks and feels as it did at its Bagehotian zenith: impressive, authoritative, gothic, labyrinthine.
