From The Common People
(Return to the manifesto)
- The Common People will immediately order a fast-track inquiry into government interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states, particularly:
- The overthrow of the legitimate government of Iran in 1953 - "The US formally admitted its role 10 years ago with the declassification of a large volume of intelligence documents, which made clear that the ousting of the elected prime minister, Mohammad Mosadegh, 70 years ago this week was a joint CIA-MI6 endeavour. The formal UK government position is to refuse to comment on an intelligence matter." (Guardian, 15 August 2023). This refusal is an unethical abdication of responsibility for which an apology is overdue.
