Today the Mail and the Observer are united in their loathing of Blair and longing for justice; Henry Porter writes under the strap "No more evasion and prevarication – Britain's elite must be held to account (The blocking of the Chilcot report underlines how the powerful shield their activities from the public)" calling for Jack Straw and Alastair Campbell to share the dock with Blair. Peter Hitchens calls for much the same thing;
"The Chilcot Inquiry, which ought at least to have shown Blair publicly for what he is, is stalled, perhaps forever. It seems it may never report properly. This is because British officials are blocking the release of documents recording exchanges between Blair and ex-President George W. Bush.
We are now being told this is the Americans’ fault. Perhaps it really is. But why are the men who actually created these wars allowed to hide their private conversations, when the unwise remarks of sergeants and privates can be used in evidence against them, to fling them into jail?
The next time you see Mr Blair wearing a poppy, or see any politician simpering about our ‘wonderful Armed Forces’, remember this. Those who did Blair’s bidding end up dead or maimed, or on trial, ruined and in prison cells. He remains whole, at liberty and rich."
