I’M read­ing a book called by Robert Har­ris at the mo­ment.

It’s about a Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter who or­ders a se­cret op in which UK spe­cial forces are in­volved in the il­le­gal kid­nap and tor­ture of ter­ror sus­pects.

The PM char­ac­ter, Adam Lang, has a force­ful wife who is clev­erer than he is, and cur­rently makes a for­tune on the US lec­ture cir­cuit. Lang was elected PM on a wave of eupho­ria but left his party’s core sup­port­ers feel­ing be­trayed over the “War on Ter­ror”.

Of course, this is all fic­tion.

Af­ter all, Tony Blair said he had “no knowl­edge” of our se­cret ser­vices be­ing in­volved in any il­le­gal tor­ture busi­ness. And we be­lieve him. Don’t we?
