WILL the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war tell us anything we don't know? Will it change anybody's mind about how British participation came about? Will its conclusions serve to protect future belligerents or sufferers from "collateral damage" from similar fiascos?

The answer to all three questions is "probably not".

I have English friends who insist that Tony Blair acted in good faith. They won't change their minds, and neither will I.
