We welcome Jeremy Corbyn’s pledge that if elected leader he will apologise on behalf of the Labour Party for the war in Iraq. We call on the other Labour leader candidates to also pledge they will do likewise.
Why is this important?
I agree with Jeremy Corbyn that the Iraq war was a foreign policy mistake of horrendous proportions, for British democracy, for the Labour Party and especially for the people of Iraq. I believe that politicians should stand up and admit when they are wrong and if they Labour Party is to put this issue behind us once and for all.
