In March 2011 David Cameron stood before MPs to make the case for military action against Libya.
The Government will “learn the lessons” of Iraq, he told the House of Commons.
Unlike Iraq, this time they would “plan for the future” to help reconstruct the country.
Five years on the Foreign Affairs committee has published its verdict on the military intervention.
Britain went to war on flawed intelligence, failed to plan properly for post-conflict Libya and has left the country in “political and economic” collapse.
Furthermore, the failure to bring stability to the country has helped terrorist groups such as ISIS spread across North and West Africa and the Middle East.
The former Prime Minister is no longer around to be held accountable for his actions.
We should be careful of drawing exact parallels with Iraq.
Cameron’s reluctance to put troops on the ground meant there were no British casualties (though hundreds of thousands of Libyans have died) and the air strikes were authorised by the United Nations.
But it is surprising that while Iraq will rightly haunt Blair to his grave there has been, until now, so little censure of Cameron for what has proved to be humanitarian and geo-political disaster.
The main event in the Commons is Prime Minister’s questions at noon.
As usual we will be running a live blog of the exchanges with an instant verdict and sketch.
Jeremy Corbyn is also facing Owen Smith at 8pm tonight for a Sky News leadership debate.
We have a mini festival of committee hearings with Justine Greening trying to defend the grammar school reforms at the Education select committee, Priti Patel before the International Development committee and Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood quizzed by the Public Administration committee on the Chilcot report and Brexit.
Some of these may be more interesting than others.
