London - (Bonkers): Did a magnificent all expenses paid VIP trip to Washington persuade ex-UK Attorney General that the British government 'would be able to get away' with invading Iraq without a UN resolution?

Today's Chilcot Inquiry heard how Lord Goldsmith changed his mind about dumping established UN protocols about invading a sovereign nation knee-deep in oil.

"Basically, Condi Rice got me smashed on Japanese sake," Goldsmith reminisced wistfully.

"Wow, can that lady be persuasive!

"After just a few hours in the Mayflower Hotel's magnificent presidential suite I was totally legless, er... convinced about the sheer, irrefutable logic of busting Saddam's ass," Goldsmith explained.

"They have these amusing VIP 'goody bags' as well as unlimited access to free, unbiased personal investment advice from the Halliburton Oil Corporation!

"Call it Washington razzamatazz if you like. In the end it was the right decision."

Goldsmith returned to a Downing Street cabinet meeting bursting with enthusiasm for the Poodle brothers' foray into Iraq and the rest is all hystery.

Fellow toerag Tony Blair takes center stage at the Inquiry this Friday.
