It would appear that the findings of the Chilcot Inquiry into the Iraq War are being leaked to the mainstream media. Despite my misgivings about these leaks it is being reported that Chilcot did not believe Blair's version of events (surprised?). Most people who have reviewed the events which took us to this illegal war have come to the same conclusion.
So what happens now? What happens when the Chilcot Report is actually published? It appears that there is a case for accusations of war crimes but is that how it works? Well I will bet that somewhere in this morass a clause will exist which states that, even though the Chilcot Inquiry has been very valuable (and cost a lot of money), it has no legal standing and therefore further legal proceedings cannot proceed.
You see this is how they work! I think that most of the public now believe that Blair was a wrong 'un. Alright he conned me as well back in 1996 (when we were desperate to get rid of the Tories) but I soon realised that he was not working for the best interests of Britain. In fact I got the impression that the government of the day was actively working against British interests as the world walked through our porous borders.
It was clear that Blair had made some kind of pact with George Bush and that he became increasingly desperate to fulfill that pact to such an extent that Alistair Campbell apparently 'adjusted' the Intelligence reports. Now during my time with the military I had some interest in missiles and the thought that Iraq had a missile which could threaten us in 45 minutes was ludicrous!
There appears to be little doubt that Tony Blair has serious questions to answer in a court of law where he would be on oath (I suspect that wouldn't matter too much) but where he would be subject to the laws on perjury. In fact I cannot think of anyone that I would rather see facing a judge and that is precisely the reason that it will never happen!
