Tony Blair to take a bigger role in Labour election campaign? No thanks

In response to an FT article by George Parker on 7th April 2015, entitled 'Tony Blair to take a bigger role in Labour election campaign'

Mr Blair submitted fabricated and misleading evidence to parliament and the British people in order to take us into a war in Iraq. He did this in support of President George W. Bush, who committed his own crime against the people by sending Colin Powell to the UN to wave a laboratory bottle around as 'proof' of WMD - all the time wearing the facial expression of a man who knew he was committing a crime, not least against his own values. 

George W. Bush and Tony Blair - two self appointed children of destiny, legends in their own lunch boxes. One of them has the good sense to keep quiet, the other one hasn't finished yet - he's still trying to convince the world that his brand of hubris is better than everyone else's. Please shut up and go away Mr Blair - your pretence at credibility is a sick joke.
