Date set for Hutton Report

Lord Hutton's eagerly awaited report into the circumstances surrounding the death of government scientist Dr David Kelly will be delivered on January 28th.

There has already been the usual speculation and positioning ahead of the report with both the BBC and the government seeking to defend whatever it is they may have to. They have a 24 advance on the report to allow them to come up with their responses or excuses.

Bookies have the odds on Blair resigning over the report at 20/1.

With the crucial Commons vote on university fees the day before, it should be a busy week for Blair.
