No.10 Forced To Clarify Defence Secretary's UK 'Illegal Wars' Claim
Downing Street has been forced to clarify the defence secretary’s claim that the UK has previously fought “illegal wars”, in an apparent reference to Iraq.Prime minister Boris Johnson’s official spokesperson said Ben Wallace was expressing a “personal view” when he accused Labour of presiding over “illegal wars” when in government.The spokesperson added: “Neither the government nor the Chilcot inquiry has expressed a view as to whether the UK’s participation in the war was legal.”It bore resemblance to when Nick Clegg was forced to clarify his claim that the Iraq war was illegal when he was deputy prime minister in 2010, amid fears it could aid charges against the government in international courts.It is the second embarrassment for Wallace this month, having been forced to apologise for breaking social distancing rules by shaking a man’s hand on his way to a cabinet meeting.He made his “illegal wars” comments during a heated Commons debate on laws to limit prosecutions against troops for actions taken in operations overseas. At one stage, Wallace told Labour shadow defence secretary John Healey: “Much of the mess we are having to come and clean up today is because of your illegal wars, your events in the past, and the way you have run the safety for our forces.” Healey hit back: “That is not worthy of the office of the secretary of state for defence”.Tony Blair’s Labour government has long faced widespread criticism for pushing UK forces into wars into Iraq and Afghanistan.In 2004, United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan said the US-led invasion of Iraq a year prior was “illegal” because it contravened the UN charter.The Chilcot inquiry found in 2016 that the UK decided to take military action in Iraq before all other peaceful options had been carried out and undermined the UN Security Council in the run up to the invasion, in which more than 150,000 Iraqis died, and a million more were displaced.Related...

Liz Truss Warned Gender Self-ID Move 'Does Not Command Majority' In Commons
Tory MP Crispin Blunt has warned ministers its rejection of trans people’s right to self-identify their gender is not backed by MPs. The former minister also told Liz Truss, women and equalities secretary, that her controversial decision has caused “crushing disappointment” and anger in the trans community. Truss confirmed in a ministerial statement on Tuesday that Boris Johnson’s government would not update the Gender Recognition Act and allow trans people to legally change the gender without a medical diagnosis. Amnesty International has described the decision as “extremely worrying” and a string of MPs hit out at Truss in the Commons on Thursday. Truss, however, has said three more clinics will open and that the process will be “kinder and more straightforward” – namely by moving the process online and reducing the £140 fee to a “nominal” amount. Asking an urgent question on the matter, Blunt told MPs: “Does (Truss) understand the crushing disappointment of trans people with the content of her statement on Tuesday when set against the consultation on which it was based?“Does she appreciate that trans people cannot discern any strong or coherent reason for this screeching change of direction?”He added: “Does she understand the anger at the prospect of them receiving their fundamental rights being snatched away? The longer this uncertainty has been allowed to continue, the worse the fear and anger have become. Does she understand the delay in the statement has helped contribute to that?“Does she appreciate that her statement does not command a majority in this House and will she confirm that is one of the reasons she is unable to propose any legislation?“She has presented the House with an inherently unstable settlement that will have to be addressed hopefully sooner rather than later.”Blunt went on to further target Truss, saying Johnson should not have given her the dual roles of trade secretary and equalities secretary. He said: “Her acquisition to the women and equalities brief in 2019 was hardly planned. The prime minister had done her and the nation no favours by continuing to over-burden her after the election at such an extraordinary time for trade.”Shadow women and equalities minister Marsha de Cordova, meanwhile, said: “After three years of toxic debate it is deeply disappointing that this government has let trans people down and dropped its plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act.”Responding to Blunt, Truss said the “settlement we have reached balances the rights and upholds the rights of transgender people and of women”, saying it protects access to single-sex spaces.She added: “I believe that we have come to the right conclusion which is in line with other major nations.” Related...
