Surely there was nothing _corrupt_ about the UK helping the US in Iraq.
It may (or may not) have been foolish, but it was not corrupt.
On the main issue, I cannot believe Charlie McCreevey, Chris Patten, etc,
are corrupt. I'm sure they all do what they believe is best,
first for their country, and secondly for Europe.
Personally, I wish the EU Commission would take a different line from the US
on many matters, including patents.
But I don't think their failure to do so is due to backhanders,
or anything like that.
