Oh, do I detect a change in the official line - maybe a clarification to earlier statements?
According to Political Home, "Andrew Dismore, Labour MP and Joint Committee on Human Rights Chairman said he believed past government statements about UK complicity in torture were made in "good faith" before new information came to light."
This seems like a precursor to a government statement admitting that - 'yup, your right, it did happen and we were misinformed, so the fact we lied previously was not our fault.'
Sorry, sorry, sorry - I forgot that the above is totally unfair as the government are, of course, Right 'Honourable' Members of Parliament!
