Blair appears at Chilcot

The performance of Tony Blair at the Iraq inquiry was chilling. There was no spark of humanity in his testimony; no sense that he cared about the suffering of the Iraqis since the invasion; no sense that he cared about the soldiers who had lost their lives fighting for ‘his cause’; no sense of compassion for the grieving families seated behind him. The robust questioning of the morning faded into an aimless discussion which allowed the former PM to set the agenda, promote himself, and prepare the country for his next big “adventure” against Iran. When he was given one final chance by Sir John Chilcot to acknowledge the sacrifice made by the sons of the families behind him, he had nothing to say.
