Trust me, I'm the Foreign Secretary

Jack and Friends
Unless we all start to believe in conspiracy theories and that the officials are lying, I'm lying and that behind this there is some kind of secret state in league with some dark forces in the US, and we believe Secretary [of State Condoleezza] Rice is lying, there is simply no truth in claims that the UK has been involved in rendition.

Sometimes you read something and then you read it again and again and again... but no matter how many times you read it, it just doesn't make sense. Does Jack Straw really believe that this statement is a useful defence of the government's position? Trust us?

He's a member of one of the least trusted, most dishonest governments this country has ever had the misfortune to have elected and he wants us to trust him? If ever there was a sign of how out of touch with the real world this government has become, this is it. Trust you Jack? Don't make me laugh.
