'Please stop saying I was lying,' says ex-UK PM Blair after Iraq war inquiry

Tony Blair, the former prime minister who led Britain into war in Iraq in 2003, launched a defense of his legacy following the publication of a highly critical report into the war with a simple message: "Please stop saying I was lying."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Tony Blair; you pushed the UK into the Iraq war because you could smell money, for yourselves, and others in your inner circle, in the blood to come from this disaster.

As reported at informationclearinghouse.info on 27 December, 2010:

Tony Blair should give up millions of pounds he is earning from the Kuwaiti government as reparations for the Iraq war, campaigners said today. The former prime minister's company has been paid more than £27 million for advising the oil-rich state on how to run itself, according to reports. They led to calls for him to hand back the money amid accusations he is cashing in on his decision to take Britain into Iraq in 2003 — although a spokesman dismissed the figure as “complete invention”. A Stop the War coalition spokesman said: “There really should be a law against a former Prime Minister who took us into a war becoming extremely wealthy as a result of that war.”

And let's not forget your "good buddy", Sir John Scarlett, himself the author of the "Dodgy Dossier". As reported at beforeitsnews.com on 12 November, 2015:

Tony Blair’s spy chief who wrongly claimed Iraq had WMDs making millions Published time: 12 Nov, 2015 17:39 The former spy chief who provided Tony Blair with ‘evidence’ justifying the invasion of Iraq in 2003 is now raking in vast sums of money, working for accountancy firms, stock brokers, oil companies and investment banks. Sir John Scarlett was head of the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) when former Prime Minister Blair used the now infamous ‘dodgy dossier’ on Saddam Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) to claim the Iraqi leader could launch an attack on Britain within 45 minutes. Critics of the spy chief say he let Blair’s spin-doctor Alistair Campbell pressure him into “sexing up” the document. Since leaving the civil service, Scarlett has worked for a string of multinational corporations, including PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and BP, earning hundreds of thousands of pounds. Blair promoted Scarlett to the head of MI6 in 2004, a year after the invasion of Iraq, in a move many saw as a reward for his assistance in justifying the Iraq War. The spymaster left MI6 in 2009 to work in the private sector, taking a role on the advisory board of PwC in 2010 and as a paid adviser to global insurance company Swiss Re. In the same year, Scarlett also took a job with investment bank Morgan Stanley and risk management firm Chertoff Group, founded by former US Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. Within a year of leaving MI6 Scarlett also took a position on the board of Times Newspapers and an advisory position for the Norwegian multinational oil company, Statoil. The private company Scarlett ran with his wife, Gwenda Stilliard, had cash assets of £89,573 ($136,185) in 2012 and £683,625 ($1.03 million) a year later. According to the Independent, over the past three years Scarlett shared £800,000 ($1.2 million) from another private consultancy firm, SC Strategy that he co-owned with the former independent review of anti-terrorism legislation Lord Carlisle. In January 2015 Scarlett joined the board of BP as a non-executive director. Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond approved the move, advising him: “You should not draw on privileged information available to you from your time in Crown Service.” The UK government’s Advisory Committee on Business Appointments (Acoba), which monitors the ‘revolving door’ between government and the private sector, approved all of Scarlett’s job applications. A former MI6 official and colleague of Scarlett told the Independent he was one of many spy chiefs cashing in on the booming security industry. “After 9/11 there was an intelligence free-for-all in the United States,” he said. “The division between state and commercial security got shot to hell, blurred. Booz Allen Hamilton, Chertoff, and other connected firms, now pull in billions in state contracts. “And as their net and international influence spread, and large corporations place increasing faith in tailored intel, the British CVs of John Scarlett or John Sawers [MI6 chief from 2009-2014] or Mark Allen [a deputy chief at MI6], all look worth shelling out for,” he added.

So, the bottom line, Tony Blair, is that you lied, because you could smell the money coming. Hundreds of British military members have died, or become maimed for life; thousands of Iraqis are dead, and Iraq is a completely failed nation.

But hey, you and your buddies did make a ton of money on the deaths and maimings of your brother and sister Brits, and thousands of dead Iraqis, didn't you?!?

And ultimately, the money was all that mattered.

Congrats, sir, in tandem with that unholy trinity of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld, in having created an absolutely new, hellish standard for vulture capitalism at is finest; I think you will be the standard-bearer for that dubious distinction for some time to come.

£8 BILLION is locked into UK.gov's failing IT schemes, El Reg analysis reveals

The UK government has £8bn locked into IT contracts which are at high risk of failure, according to an analysis of the Infrastructure Project Authority's accounts by The Register.

Of 143 major projects representing £405bn of government spending, The Register identified 19 IT projects that were flagged as “red” or “amber/red” in the Infrastructure and Projects Authority's annual report.

That means delivery is unachievable or highly unlikely.

Brexit makes a UK-China trade deal more likely, say officials from both countries as the Chinese blast 'frustrating' EU

Xing Houyuan, an official at the state-backed Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation, said China was being frustrated by the EU.

But now Britain has left, he said the 'situation in Western Europe will push China and the UK to make a trade treaty,' he told the state-owned China Daily newspaper.

And British trade minister Lord Price, a former boss of Waitrose, is currently in Hong Kong where he said the future of 'optimistic' about future trade deals with 'new trading markets' in the East.

Four former Barclays bankers who rigged global interest rates 'like bookmakers trying to nobble a horse in the Grand National' are jailed for a total of more than 17 years

Peter Johnson, 61, and Jonathan Mathew, 35, who were based in London tweaked the bank's Libor rate in a way that benefited their US co-conspirators, traders Jay Merchant, 45, and Alex Pabon, 38.

The New York traders would tell their London colleagues whether they wanted the Libor rate to move up or down on any given day, 'tipping the odds in their favour', the court heard.

Mathew and Johnson then fixed the rate, which is used to set millions of pounds of financial deals, in a bid increase profits for Barclays while causing potentially enormous losses to others dealing with the bank.

Chilcot, Israel and the Lobby

It took seven years for Sir Chilcot and his team to reach a set of conclusions that every Brit capable of thought understood back in November, 2013.

The inquiry produced a damning assessment of Blair’s conduct as well as the British military. But the Chilcot Inquiry failed to expose the crucial close ties between Blair’s criminal war, the Jewish Lobby and Israel.

At the time Britain entered the criminal war against Iraq, Blair’s chief funders were Lord ‘cashpoint’ Levy and the LFI (Labour Friends of Israel). The prime advocates for the immoral interventionist war within the British press were Jewish Chronicle writers David Aaronovitch and Nick Cohen. The attorney general that gave the green light for the war was Lord Goldsmith.

MI6 source who claimed Saddam had 'spherical glass containers' full of chemical weapons was actually describing scenes from Hollywood blockbuster The Rock

MI6 has been ridiculed for relying on a 'key' Iraqi source who described unrealistic scenes from Hollywood Blockbuster The Rock.

The Chilcot inquiry highlighted the ludicrous episode as it slammed flawed intelligence assessments that repeatedly suggested Saddam Hussein had significant WMD capabilities - even though no weapons were found.

It also accused chiefs of failing to stand up to Tony Blair as he drove the country towards war.

The long-awaited report said that in September 2002, six months before the invasion, the intelligence agency believed it was on the edge of a 'significant breakthrough'.
A new source in Iraq was thought to have 'phenomenal access' to information about Saddam Hussein's chemical and biological weapon programme.

The individual had suggested the regime was accelerating its production of such WMD.

Chilcot report: Tony Blair is now facing the prospect of legal action over his decision to go to war in Iraq

ALL British shoppers could get £400 compo after scandalous £19BILLION Mastercard 'rip-off'

MILLIONS of shoppers are set to receive hundreds of pounds in compensation as a result of a £19MILLION legal claim being launched against MasterCard over “illegal” card charges.

Britons have been ripped off by at least £400 due to unfair pin and chip charges in shops, lawyers preparing the historic landmark case claim.

Shops offset the charges by increasing prices across the board - meaning even cash buyers without credit cards may be entitled to compensation.

Campaigners say MasterCard set unlawfully high interchange fees - charged to stores when shoppers swipe their debit or credit cards - for 16 years, which were passed on to consumers in the form of inflated prices for goods and services.

The Iraq War, Brexit And Imperial Blowback

While the British Empire may be a thing of the past, British imperialism is not. Today the Chilcot inquiry reports on the role of Tony Blair’s government in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, which resulted in the death of nearly half a million Iraqis and the destabilization of the region, for which its inhabitants continue to pay the price. It is no coincidence that the Blairite wing of the Labour Party, amidst the Brexit chaos, launched a coup against its current leader, Jeremy Corbyn, who is set to call for Blair to be put on trial for war crimes.

Angela Merkel could move to oust Europe’s federalist chief Jean-Claude Juncker 'within the next year', a Germany government minister has said, in a sign of deepening European divisions over how to respond to Britain’s Brexit vote.

The German chancellor’s frustration with the European Commission chief came as Europe split over whether to use the Brexit negotiations as a trigger to deepen European integration or take a more pragmatic approach to Britain as it heads for the exit door.

Everyone Knew that Iraq Didn’t Have WMDs (And Chilcot Report Is a Whitewash)

We in the alternative media reported over and over and over and over and over and over that all of the insiders knew that Iraq didn’t have weapons of mass destruction (WMDs).

Today’s Chilcot Report doesn’t add anything new.

Craig Murray – former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and Rector (i.e. president) of the University of Dundee – explains why:

Do not expect a full truth and a full accounting from the Chilcot panel of establishment trusties today. Remember who they are.

Iraq war mother: 'Blair cannot be allowed to walk away to his merry life and his millions'

"Tony Blair has to answer for his actions, whether it is in a court of war here or in The Hague. He can't just walk away and say sorry [...] and go off to his merry life and all his millions. No. In my opinion he should be in the Hague, on war crimes [charges]."

Has Brexit triggered an anti-democractic “Color Revolution”?

The country’s fate was, ever so briefly, put in the hands of the people. They were being tasked with voting on an issue that could destroy trade agreements set to make many multi-national companies billions of dollars, an issue that poses a direct threat to America’s financial and Imperial interests, an issue that is an existential threat to NATO itself.

You can’t leave that to chance.

The people must be controlled. They are pressured and coerced by the media, scared by their leaders and gently instructed by the Empire.

…but they don’t listen. They vote the wrong way, and in such numbers that the usual checks and balances, all the little tweaks in the process, and lost ballots and “accidents” STILL don’t swing the vote.

Jul 06 07:37

Chilcot needs to say, ‘Blair lied’.

The fact is, there is already enough information in the public domain to prove beyond reasonable doubt that Tony Blair lied in the run up to the war, that the war was illegal and that it did catastrophic damage not just to Middle East but to global stability.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I note that the foreign press is reporting that the Chilcot report does suggest Tony Blair fabricated much of the claims used to sell the war while the American corporate media continues to use the phrase "flawed intelligence." The reason is obvious. George W. Bush was party to those very same lies. And the government doesn't want you knowing that you are lied into wars because more wars based on more lies are coming!

Tony Blair is world's worst terrorist: Families of Iraq war dead protest against former UK PM

As protesters outside bayed for Tony Blair's prosecution, inside the building where John Chilcot delivered his damming Iraq War Inquiry report the father of a dead serviceman delivered his own verdict: "My son died in vain".

Having waited seven years for the former civil servant to deliver his verdict on Britain's role in the 2003 conflict, bereaved families and anti-war protesters were united in an outpouring of anger.

"There is one terrorist in this world that the world needs to be aware of, and his name is Tony Blair, the world's worst terrorist," Sarah O'Connor, whose brother Bob was killed in Iraq in 2005, told a press conference following the report's publication.

5 revelations from Chilcot’s damning report into the Iraq war

The report says then-Prime Minister Tony Blair deliberately exaggerated the threat posed by the Iraqi regime as he sought to make the case for military action to MPs and the public. Blair had disregarded warnings about the potential consequences of military action and relied too heavily on his own beliefs, Chilcot says.

In July 2002, well over six months before the invasion of Iraq, Blair wrote to then-US President George Bush promising him that the UK would be there with him “whatever,” Chilcot says.

Jul 06 07:08

Revealed: Blair dismissed London anti-war march as 'millions of liberal-minded people taking to the streets to defend the most illiberal regime on earth'

Tony Blair blasted the biggest protest march in British history as 'fatuous' in a memo to George W Bush days after the UK and US launched the Iraq War.

In a note titled 'The Fundamental Goal', Mr Blair told the US President a poor communications strategy ahead of the war had left 'wholly warped views' of American politics in Europe and elsewhere.

The then-Prime Minister advised him to 'keep the policy' of tackling terror and weapons of mass destruction but to 'change the presentation'.

Mr Blair said Mr Bush was right to want to spread freedom by delivering security and told him: 'That's why, though Iraq's WMD is the immediate justification for action, ridding Iraq of Saddam is the real prize.'

Chilcot Report on Iraq War Offers Devastating Critique of Tony Blair

Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain went to war alongside the United States in Iraq in 2003 on the basis of flawed intelligence that went unchallenged, a shaky legal rationale, inadequate preparation and exaggerated public statements, an independent inquiry into the war concluded in a report published on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media is declaring the Chilcot report "devastating" but it is in fact another whitewash. This article echoes the claim of "flawed intelligence" but as the Downing Street Memo and Blair's "Dodgy Dossier" prove, there was a deliberate intention to deceive the people of the US and UK with the fiction of nuclear weapons, in order to invade Iraq for purely economic reasons.

'I will be with you, whatever': Blair's fawning messages to George W Bush reveal how the two plotted to come up with a 'clever plan' to 'deal' with Saddam

One message shows that - as soon as the day after the 9/11 attacks - Blair told Bush they should immediately tackle states and individuals with weapons of mass destruction and justify it later.

In another six-page memo to Bush - sent when Blair was telling the British public that no decision to go to war had been made - the then-Prime Minister said he would do 'whatever' it took to remove Saddam Hussein.

In one of the earliest notes to be released, a private letter to the US President on September 12, 2001, Mr Blair both offered support to bring to justice the hijackers who destroyed the Twin Towers and looked ahead to the 'next stage after this evil'.

Chilcot: Blair invaded Iraq before exhausting peaceful options

Tony Blair’s government made up its mind to take Britain into the U.S.-led war in Iraq before all peaceful options had been exhausted, and based the decision on “flawed intelligence,” according to the long-awaited Chilcot Report released on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Chilcot report is a whitewash. There was no flawed intelligence. There was flat-out lying.

Tony Blair has 'got his comeuppance today': Mum of Glasgow soldier killed in Iraq is pleased with Chilcot report

In it, report author Sir John Chilcot criticised Tony Blair - the Prime Minister in 2003 who presented the case for war and led the invasion - for committing to backing US counterpart George W Bush over Iraq.

It also criticised Government ministers' justification for, planning and conduct of a military intervention which "went badly wrong, with consequences to this day".

Several military operations were described in the report as "hastily prepared" and led to equipment shortages for British personnel - an issue which several victims' families have long campaigned over.

Chilcot vows his Iraq War report will NOT be a whitewash and 'a few' people will get the blame but admits he is 'not judge and jury' as military families tell him troops cannot carry the can for politicians

It has been seven years in the making, but the results of the inquiry into Britain's invasion of Iraq in 2003 will finally be unveiled today.

Thirteen years after British troops crossed into Iraq, Sir John Chilcot will deliver his verdict on the UK's most controversial military engagement of the post-war era - and he has warned the Government, army and intelligence service to expect criticism.

The report, believed to have cost around £10million to produce, is published amid calls for former prime minister Tony Blair to be held to account for 'misleading the public and Parliament' when taking the UK into the conflict.

Jul 06 06:19

FLASHBACK - The Downing Street memo

There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the Chilcot report finally out, it is worth recalling all the lies used to sell us war with Iraq.

Mother of soldier killed in Iraq believes Chilcot Report backs her call for Blair to face prosecution

"You don't wake up in your bath in the morning and say let's get ready for war. Someone told me. I know someone told me"

Lord West was not invited to give evidence to the Chilcot inquiry.

Jeremy Corbyn Labour coup designed to stop him 'calling for Tony Blair's head' after Chilcot report, says Alex Salmond

Alex Salmond has appeared to suggest the internal Labour party coup against Jeremy Corbyn is connected with the publication of the long-awaited Chilcot report into the Iraq war.

His comments come just three days before the publication of the inquiry into the 2003 Iraq war. Earlier reports have suggested Mr Blair, the former Prime Minister, and his contemporaries will be savaged in an “absolutely brutal” verdict.

In an article for the Herald, the former Scottish First Minister wrote: “It would be a mistake to believe that Chilcot and current events are entirely unconnected. The link is through the Labour Party”

PETER OBORNE: If Chilcot fails to nail Blair's lies, it's final proof our democracy is broken 

According to advance leaks, Sir John will apportion the blame very widely with several dozen ministers, officials and military figures coming in for criticism.

These same reports also suggest a great deal of the report will concentrate on mistakes made during the occupation of Iraq rather than the decision to go to war in the first place.

If these leaks are true, they suggest that Sir John’s report, like the whitewashed reports that have already been published, will lack focus.

There are in truth only a handful of crucial points it should address. Did Tony Blair lie in order to make the case for war? Was the war legal?

Did the war — as Tony Blair promised it would — make Britain a safer place?

1776 Was Amexit

America’s Independence Day & Brexit are connected by a belief in self-government

Two hundred and forty years before Brexit, there was Amexit, also known as the American Revolution.

In terms of historical consequence, the Brexit vote and the American Revolution don’t occupy the same universes, but they are connected by a belief in popular sovereignty and a refusal to be governed by a remote authority with only an attenuated mechanism — if that — for representation.

UK to slash corporation tax to cushion hit from Brexit

Britain has announced plans to cut corporation tax to less than 15 percent in an attempt to cushion the shock of the country's decision to leave the European Union, raising the prospect of competitive tax cuts across the bloc.

Finance minister George Osborne told the Financial Times he wanted to build a "super competitive economy" with low business taxes and a global focus.

The new rate, which was announced without a target date, compares with Osborne's previous target to cut corporation tax to 17 percent by 2020 from 20 percent now. It compares with an average of 25 percent among most developed economies

Theresa May: Cutting EU migration will have to wait

Voters will have to wait before migration can begin to be cut despite Britain deciding to leave the European Union, Theresa May has warned.

The Home Secretary, who is the front-runner in the Conservative leadership election, promises to reform the EU’s rules on “free movement” of people, which currently allow an unlimited number of migrants to move to the UK to live and work.

However, she stops short of promising to abolish free movement altogether, warning that it will “take time” before the numbers of immigrants come down.

As Brexit dominates news, Investigatory Powers Bill sneaks in under the radar

Days after Britain and the world reeled from the result of the referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union, it’s back to business as usual for the House of Lords. This week the Investigatory Powers Bill was given its second reading, and it’s interesting to see how their Lordships approached scrutinising the wide-ranging powers of this controversial bill.

The Investigatory Powers Bill is intended to create a comprehensive framework that governs the way police, security and intelligence agencies intercept, store and use personal data. The current provisions are scattered across many different pieces of legislation, and do not always reflect current practice or technology. The bill goes beyond telephone records to include what it defines as internet connection records, a log of visits to websites, and the use of apps such as Apple’s iMessage, and WhatsApp, owned by Facebook.

The Met Office needs YOU to tell them what the weather is like: Forecaster’s new supercomputer hasn’t got enough data for it to work so amateur meteorologists need to set up stations in their gardens

Thousands of amateur weather watchers are being urged to install miniature meteorological stations in their gardens by the Met Office to help provide more accurate forecasts.

The national weather service has built one of the world’s most technologically advanced forecasting supercomputers that can carry out 16,000 trillion calculations a second.

But it is being hindered by the lack of data available and the Met Office is now turning to the public for their help.

You voted for a revolution... you got a Blair robot

So 17 million people voted for a revolutionary change in the way we are governed, and the result is going to be Theresa May. These ignored multitudes were not, I think, hoping for yet another Blairite robot, a living symbol of everything that is wrong with our political system. But this is what they are going to get.

I am sure Mrs May is a perfectly nice person and an ideal neighbour. But this is not the point. She is completely unfitted to answer the national demand for change.

She is a conventional Left-wing liberal. She wanted, for heaven’s sake, to stay in the EU, though she lacked the nerve to campaign actively for this. Given the growing campaign to overturn the referendum by guile and fear, can she be trusted not to fudge us back in?

The real reason the permanent political class is trying to topple Jeremy Corbyn

The astonishing scenes of the last week in UK politics have seen the figureheads of the establishment media and politics go to war with Jeremy Corbyn. This is because the permanent political class is freaking out over Corbyn’s rising popularity among formerly disillusioned voters, and how that imperils their grip on power. Here is how.

Over with the Labour establishment, they tried to halt Corbyn’s rise from the get-go. Remember the purge, scaremongering and refusal to work with a Corbyn front bench?

The reason Labour had a new leadership election process last time round, was the result of the parliamentary Labour Party and the NEC long term efforts to diminish the power of Trade Unions. By widening the vote to Labour voters, and quieting the voice of Trade Unions, the Blairite factions of the party gambled on those new voters being to the right of the Unions.

Lord Rothschild Demands Britain Stay In Europe

Rothschild, who chairs the RIT Capital Partners investment trust, refers to his family businesses which originated with five brothers setting up the “first truly international banking system,” operating from London, Paris, Vienna, Naples and Frankfurt at the end of the 18th century.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, so the world's greatest money-junkie demands Britain stay in the EU. He DEMANDS it, like he thinks he is the true ruler of the world!

Small point his Imperial Rothschildness should recall. The Templars set up the world's first international banking system in the 12th Century, and like that of the Rothschilds, it was based on debt. We know what happened to the Templars when rulers realized they could never pay their way out of debt. Maybe it is time for a repeat!

The US Will Not Let Britain Exit the EU

Dr Roberts explains his view about Brexit and the future of the EU: “The British vote to leave the EU is not binding, so I think most of the discussion about the effect of Brexit is premature, because Washington is not going to allow the British to leave the EU. The EU is a CIA initiative, and Washington has worked for 60 years to put all of the European countries in a bag that is easily controlled. …Some of the 28 countries in the EU have some accountably left to their peoples. Not very much, as Greece has proven, but some still do. …So it is much more convenient if all of these countries are put under the control of an unaccountable, unelected, European commission where only a handful of people make decisions, making it very easy for Washington to control.

Israel boycott ban: Three councils cleared of anti-semitism over Israeli goods boycott

Scottish Fireman Resigns in Wake of Anti-9/11 Truth Pressure

A few years later, Maxwell learned of Tony Rooke, a filmmaker who was seeking funding to produce a documentary about 9/11, and he made a donation. Upon finding out that Maxwell was a fireman, Rooke asked him to make an appearance in the film. Maxwell agreed.

The main focus of Incontrovertible is World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7), which collapsed — purportedly from fires — late in the afternoon of 9/11. Once the film was released, Maxwell gave copies of the DVD to friends, firefighters in his unit, policemen in the street, and military personnel. He was hopeful that once they realized the facts about WTC 7, they would be as shocked and incensed as he was at the cover-up. “I thought that mass action would follow! But exactly the opposite occurred: indifference, apathy, silence,” Maxwell recalls.

America Should Exit From NATO and the National Security State

snip: What did U.S. and NATO officials think — that people would simply remain where they were so that they could get blown to bits with the bombs that were being dropped on them, by the U.S. assassination program, or by the massive civil-war violence that came as a result of the U.S. and NATO regime-change operations?

People don’t ordinarily behave in that fashion. Most people prefer to live rather than die and will do anything they can to survive. That’s why those refugees fled to Europe— to escape the horrific consequences of interventionism by NATO and the U.S. national security state in the Middle East.

I wonder if deep down, those who are lamenting and groaning about the Brexit vote realize that: If there had been no U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, no regime change in Libya, no U.S. and NATO bombing and interventionism in Syria, there wouldn’t have been a massive refugee crisis in Europe and, almost certainly, a rejection of Brexit by a majority of British voters.

Chilcot Inquiry: MPs seek to impeach Tony Blair using ancient law

Not used since 1806, when Tory minister Lord Melville was charged for misappropriating official funds, the law is seen in Westminster as an alternative form of punishment if, as believed, Mr Blair will escape serious criticism in the Chilcot Inquiry report.

Triggering the process simply requires an MP to propose a motion, and support evidence as part of a document called the Article of Impeachment.

If the impeachment attempt is approved by MPs, the defendant is delivered to Black Rod ahead of a trial.

A simple majority is required to convict, at which point a sentence can be passed, which could, in theory, involve Mr Blair being sent to prison.

Britain's decision to leave EU is in danger of being WATERED DOWN by 'Europhile fanatics'

Britain’s Leave camp issued the stark warning as they revealed that the Government’s team responsible for the nation’s Brexit will actually be led by the same Europhiles behind David Cameron’s disastrous renegotiation plans.

In spite of the nation calling for the UK to sever ties with Europe following last week’s momentous referendum, Brexit campaigners say the Remain camp could still have a chance of getting their way.

Ukip MP Douglas Carswell said: “There is a real danger that the Sir Humphreys will derail Brexit, which represents the will of the people.”

Leave campaigner Daniel Hannan MEP told the Mail Online:“This is the whole reason we’re in this mess. The Sir Humphreys aren’t going to get the best deal for the UK."

Fears new Brussels law that will 'crucify' UK ports may STILL apply post-Brexit

Industry chiefs fear a controversial new law will drive many of our maritime businesses to the wall, putting more than 300,000 jobs at risk nationwide.

The hotly contested Port Services Regulation has been described as the death knell for Britain’s shipping industry and was strongly opposed by business leaders.

Its implementation was viewed as such a powder keg issue in the UK that senior bureaucrats put back the announcement on its future until after the June 23 referendum.

But this week the all-powerful EU Commission revealed it will plough ahead with the regulation amid warnings the Brexit vote may not exempt British ports from its punitive measures.

A spokesman for the Department for Transport said it will be "for the next administration" to decide whether or not to block the new law.

MPs say they'll use ancient law to impeach Tony Blair of misleading Parliament over the Iraq war in the wake of the Chilcot report 

A dramatic attempt to impeach Tony Blair for misleading Parliament over the Iraq war could be launched in the wake of the long-awaited Chilcot report into the conflict.

MPs have begun to build support for an attempted prosecution of the former Labour Prime Minister after the 2.6million-word report is published on Wednesday.
