If you’re interested and don’t already know the story, today’s Guardian prints a swift run-through of the behind-the-scenes events leading to and from the Hutton Enquiry, as extracted from an expanded edition of Blair’s Wars. The substance of the account seems plausible, though I suspect some Gilliganesque decoration of the dialogue. Do you believe this quote, for example:

“As the inquiry was formally announced, Gavyn Davies, the BBC chairman, received a call from a senior figure urging him not to cooperate. ‘Hutton was selected by the government. He is close to the security services and anti-BBC,’ Davies was told. ‘It’s a trap.'”
