Don’t miss the national tour of version 1.0’s post mortem on the ‘sexing up’ of the case for war on Iraq, and what it means for our democracy. See the Minister negotiate a bed of nails, blindfolded, as he’s quizzed about who knew what about WMDs and wheat, when. With their trademark biting irony, version 1.0 turn speeches, weblogs, Senate inquiries into political theatre for the 21st century: playful, surreal, and gut-wrenchingly tragic.
