Festival of Ideas: The Alternative Iraq Enquiry (18)

Borne from David Lawley-Wakelin, the freelance documentary filmmaker who was so incensed by the Iraq war that he made the bold statement from the audience of Question Time suggesting whether Tony Blair was a liar prepared to kill in the name of oil. On this premise, Lawley-Wakelin travels to Iraq to ask its citizens and military personnel whether they agreed with him. Questioning the motives on both sides of the Atlantic: who is responsible for the atrocities of war?

Followed by a discussion with Director David Lawley-Wakelin and other guests. Presented by Festival of Ideas and Watershed. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances former MP Clare Short cannot attend this event as previously advertised.

Fee: £7.20/ £5.60 concessions.
