549th anniversary of the battle of Towton

Today I spoke in a debate initiated by Caroline Cox on the Armenian Genocide, mainly on the attempts we have made over the years to engage Turkish MPs in a debate on the evidence, and particularly the authenticity of the testimonies in the Blue Book of 1915. The Turkish Grand National Assembly sent a petition to the British Parliament in 2005 asking us to repudiate the Blue Book as a fabrication of wartime propaganda, and we have been trying ever since to engage them in a dialogue on the authenticity of the evidence.
