I don't believe they are discussing the 3 presidencies with the British.
They are getting last minute fine tuned as to what they can and can't do in a parliamentary system. A battle plan so to speak.
England is also parliamentary system with hundreds of years experience under their belt. Iraq is new at the game.
So it would make sense with all that is going on that the coalition would send somebody to learn the ins and outs of their system. Tlar

The statement indicated that he was stressed during the meeting, the need to intensify efforts and commitment to constitutional Baltoukitat in forming a government and prepare for the next stage and to address all the obstacles that witnessed the political arena through prior experience.
There is a lot of confusion going on now with some articles offering hope then other articles saying there are disputes within the coalition and even more saying they won't be ready.
I feel very comfortable that this is the finest snow job I have ever been witness to.
The intention of which is to keep the SOL and Maliki in the dark. IMO they are ready this time just as Allawi stated a couple of days ago.
With all the confusion being spread, the SOL has no clue how to react or plan.
That's exactly the way it is supposed to be IMO. Keep them guessing and then lower the "boom".
Walk in and vote them into oblivion and quickly leave. We will just have to see on Tuesday whether what have been witnessing in the press is just smoke. Tlar

Maliki is trying to become dictator of Iraq. He is attempting to silence the opposition and he put his own son head of the army because like most dictators, he can't trust anybody.
He has put his back against the wall and probably he will have to be taken out as Kap has coined "toes first".
There is a bigger picture at work here and the dinar is the first step. Maliki has to go - one way on another. tlar
