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?

According this important article by the Guardia, former British PM apologizes for ‘wrong’ intelligence and mistakes in planning of conflict and admits ‘elements of truth’ in claim war brought about rise of Isis.

The Guardian quotes a number of British politicians who are critical of Blair’s role. There seems to be increasing evidence that Blair is mounting a damage limitation campaign to deflect the impact of the much delayed Chilcot enquiry.

Did Blair exceed his authority as UK prime minister and if so, how should he be held to account for the catastrophic consequences?
