The Daily Mail reports that Tony Blair was last night accused of a ‘cynical spin operation’, after offering a feeble half-apology for the Iraq War. The article quotes bereaved families saying that the former PM was ‘passing the buck for his mistakes’.
This is a truly disgraceful situation. I agree with the families who argue that the buck has to stop with Blair.
The publication of the Chilcot enquiry seems to be delayed to allow Blair to deflect attention from the full weight of the findings.
Apart from the soldiers who lost their lives for their country, there is the catastrophe in the Middle East that was triggered by the release of the ‘weapons of mass destruction spin’.
Surely, David Cameron’s government must intervene and bring justice to bear?
