Britain’s Government and military leaders had ‘absolutely no idea’ what to do in the aftermath of the invasion of Iraq, a prominent veteran of the 2003 war said today.

Colonel Tim Collins, who became famous worldwide for his inspirational eve-of-battle address to his men in the Royal Irish Regiment, said the Chilcot Inquiry into the war should recommend action to end a culture of ‘obsequiousness’ among senior military officers which led to them telling politicians what they wanted to hear.
