It's apparently the job of a minister to be unaware of facts which contradict the official narrative.
Anyway, he's just now admitted to lying -- I beg your pardon -- "inadvertently misleading Parliament", because he had been misinformed by the US, in a private letter to Harry Cohen.
Jolly good show. If you get someone else to state a lie, which you repeat verbatim even when the evidence is to the contrary, it's not a lie then is it? Just as someone who knowingly deals with stolen goods is not a criminal, because they didn't actually do any stealing.
