The Chilcot report has laid bare the US-British plot to remove Saddam. This is the second time (that we know of) where the US and the UK have conspired to remove a Middle Eastern leader.

Blair's refusal to admit error, coupled with his jet-setting lifestyle earning millions as a consultant to a variety of distasteful regimes, means that his epitaph will be a cruel one.

What he does not know, and what he refuses to acknowledge, is what it is like to live in the Iraq that he and Bush have created.
But if we allow Blair to carry the blame for the disaster of Iraq alone we are deceiving ourselves. He was aided and abetted every step of the way by the Labour Party and the Conservatives, by the overwhelming majority of the British press, by vast sections of public opinion, both on the patriotic right and the worthy left -- in short, by the entire British Establishment.
Tony Blair is a credit to himself and to the Labour Party. He is courageous, bold and selfless. He shines a light on the indecent events now taking place within the Party, and if we want to learn about real leadership we have only to look to him.
