'Deep divisions' over war in Iraq.
BIRMINGHAMMP Andrew Mitchell (Con Sutton Coldfield) remembers rows over the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
He told MPs: "In my constituency, there were very deep divisions."
He added: "I rememb" going home to have dinner with my wife, who has always been viscerally opposed to the war and believes it was a terrible mistake."
The MP said he w" persuaded by Tony Blair to support the invasion.
But in a debate about the long-awaited Chilcot inquiry into the war - which has been going on for six years now - one MP asked Mr Mitchell if he had been "duped".
Mr Mitchell said: "The question whether we were duped is exactly the reason the process of this inquiry is so important."
