Lib Dems in Holyrood & Westminster united over Iraq inquiry

Good too see some joined up thinking by both our Holyrood and Westminster Parliamentarians over their calls for a public inquiry into the Iraq war.

In his questions to Alex Salmond in today's FMQs session Scottish Lib Dem Leader Nicol Stephen used the opportunity to ask if the SNP would support the Scottish Liberal Democrats in our desire to see a public inquiry. The response was in the affirmative which means that including the Greens and Margo MacDonald there is now a majority (66 of 129) in the Scottish Parliament who favour an inquiry being held.

I've noticed that there seems to be an increasing amount of co-operation between us and the Gnats which makes me wonder just where the wind might be blowing. Interesting times ahead perchance?
