Blair? I Don't Care!

Apparently Tony Blair is appearing before the Chilcot Inquiry today. I only know this because the media have gone into collective orgasmic meltdown; it's dominating all the media outlets - the Daily Telegraph even have a live lie detector on their website. The mind boggles.

I really really really don't care about the lead up to the Iraq war. It was 7 years ago, this has been raked over many times before and Blair is the past. Nothing he says today is going to change anyone's opinion, least of all those that want him stuck in the Tower.

If the Chilcot inquiry asks some probing questions about Blair's role in Britain's subsequent disastrous and humiliating campaign in Iraq as depressingly detailed in Richard North's excellent book, then some use may come of it for lessons to be learnt in Afghanistan, otherwise it's just a waste of everyone's time and money.
