The UK's most senior civil servant, Sir Gus O'Donnell, covering up crimes against peace.

The UK's most senior civil servant, Sir Gus O'Donnell, is covering up crimes against peace. According to the Guardian:

"Britain's top civil servant, Sir Gus O'Donnell, is preventing the official inquiry into the Iraq invasion from publishing notes sent by Tony Blair to George W Bush - evidence described by the inquiry as of "central importance" in establishing the circumstances that led to war.

O'Donnell, the cabinet secretary, consulted Blair before suppressing the documents, it emerged tonight."

What has the UK country become? How is it possible that in this day and age, unelected officials can have so much power? It's completely anti-democratic. Someone somewhere should take this man to court for covering up evidence of a crime.

Chilcott has written to this unelected, anti-democratic official at least 3 times and has received the same fobbing off each time: 'The Cabinet Office said: "There is an established convention covering papers of a previous administration whereby former ministers would normally be consulted before release of papers from their time in government."'

So what the Cabinet Office is really saying is that if Hitler had been British, it would have been impossible to release any papers without his consent, a full two fingers, basically telling the British electorate to fuck off.

It's high time that 'conventions' like this were made illegal by law. Or that there be a higher law that makes these conventions non-binding in cases of possible criminal conduct.

Somebody ought to have a serious word in O'Donnell's ear and tell him that if he doesn't release these papers it's off to the Hague with him. These fucking civil servants, they think they're so civilised yet they're nothing more than common criminals...
