This is the transcript…
Lord Lawson: “If I had to sum up the Stern report in a single word, I would say it is fraudulent. You have to remember that Mr Blair was on this tack before the Stern Report, so he really had to have a report which validated the extreme opinion he had before. It’s rather like the dodgy dossier… The Iraq War was Mr Blair’s idea that he was going to save the world from terrorism by going to war in Iraq…in order to do that he had to justify it and produce the dodgy dossier. That hasn’t worked out terribly well so he has changed tack. He now wants to save the plant from the horrors of global warning so Nicholas Stern has provided him with another dodgy dossier.”
