Chilcot to be published now

After much criticism of the earlier decision to delay publication until after the general election, David Cameron has announced that the Chilcot report is to be published immediately.

“This government has nothing to hide,” Mr Cameron said to assembled journalists, “we publish now.”

We understand that the report is to be published as a partwork consisting of sixty monthly issues. Specialist partwork publisher DeLaye has been engaged to deliver the project on time and within budget.

Each issue will cost £4.95 including postage and the first will include a free cutout model of a WMD - see illustration above. A range of tasteful binders will be available, one binder having space for twelve monthly issues. 

As a special incentive, the final summary and list of recommendations will be given away free to all subscribers at the end of their subscription period. Publicity, marketing and related Twitter feeds are being handled by upmarket consultants Obskuranti.

Does buying get you a good discount on tickets for the film "American Sniper"?

Demetrius - there are a number of money off vouchers in each issue so it may be worth a try.

Let the fun begin.

Momentous news! Clearly this is something to treasure, and great that you have been given an 'exclusive' on this.

I might be wrong but it seems to me that this arrangement is definitely what is known as "a nice little earner"

If you have the distribution franchise, do we order from you?

James - before the election would be good.

Graham - I hear Tony Blair is distributing copies, but seem to be 'seconds' because they have pages missing.
