These Twitter users noticed some freaky similarities between Chilcot and Brexit


After much anticipation, the Chilcot Report into the Iraq war was unveiled today.

The report criticised Tony Blair's decision to go to war with Iraq, saying it was based on "flawed intelligence and assessments".

 The long-awaited official inquiry report into Britain's bitterly contested invasion of Iraq by Sir John Chilcot sits in the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre (David Wilcock/PA).

Twitter users pointed out that it sounded rather a lot like Brexit.

The report took seven years to complete, longer than the Iraq war itself, as this parody account notes:

Some thought Chilcot's report could have been more useful if it was published just two weeks earlier.

One clever user even managed to link in another one of the day's big stories.

Either way, it's been a busy few weeks for journalists.
