Tony Blair should be sent to Europe, to face a war crime tribunal in The Hague, not as the new President of the EU.
For some time now, increasingly insistent news reports have made evident a wish, in some quarters, to see Tony Blair appointed the first President of the European Council.
In violation of international law, Tony Blair committed this country to a war in Iraq that a large majority of European citizens opposed. This war has claimed over a million victims and displaced millions of refugees. It has been a major factor in today’s profound destabilisation of the Middle East, and has weakened world security. In order to lead his country into war, Mr Blair made systematic use of fabricated evidence and the manipulation of information.
The steps taken by Tony Blair’s government, and his complicity with the Bush administration in the illegal programme of “extraordinary renditions”, have led to an unprecedented decline in civil liberties.
