Will Chilcot publish the evidence to hang Blair?

Sir John Chilcot has found the guilty men and is ready to publish. He himself has seen all the evidence, and it looks like enough to hang Tony Blair - or more realistically, see him in the dock at the Hague. However an impasse has developed; the Cabinet Secretary, as Chief Convenor of that trade union that offers mutual protection to the heart of the political class, refuses to allow Chilcot to publish the evidence.

Chilcot, to his credit, is displaying the tenacity of a terrier with a rat on this and isn't giving way to the Tsunami power of the mandarinate. Heywood is inventive in his reasons for with-holding consent, all of them spurious and all falling on detailed assault. Blair, observing the process, not knowing when the Hague court may issue a secret and sealed indictment against him until the police squad bundles him into a van for the trip across the Channel, must be incontinent with anticipation. 

We've waited ten years. We can wait a while longer.

Word is that not only Heywood is protecting Blair by refusing to release documents, but Cameron is supporting that decision.

Perhaps he fears the thought of a PM REALLY being called to account for his actions, instead of the charade which is PMQs each week.

As for Blair. I very much doubt we will ever see him in a Court of Law, answering for his crimes. He will be given a Royal Pardon or whatever ......

I hope he dies a slow, lingering death by something especially unpleasant like Motor Neurone disease.

Meanwhile, Soldier 'A' is arrested, charged, tried, pronounced guilty & will be sentenced with great alacrity.

I just wanted to make the point that John of Enfield has already made for me - and no doubt us all.

I'd love to think so, but it seems unlikely. Without this evidence Chilcot knows his final report will be worthless, and be condemned as an Establishment cover up. In our system civil servants aren't meant to make these sort of decisions, so if Bliar is being protected in this way, it's not Heywood, but the government who are really doing it. I would expect no better from Snakey Dave.

I wonder?... I would like to think that evidence will out in the end. I'm not that hopeful though. I think it the case that my grandchildren will be learning in their history lessons about how bad the times were for our democracy between 2000 and 2020.

My understanding is that Blair, as the UN's Middle East Peace Envoy, is immune from any prosecution by anyone or any body.

He will continue to practice Contempt of Everything --- until he gets where his contempt doesn't count. Just try to imagine where he might be in Dante's scenario! Impossible: We have to invent a whole new level for him.

Correct.

The Blair creature spawned the LibLabCon tripartite of evil - the shrewd amongst us have known about this elective dictatorship for some time, but since the advent of the internet a group such as can never escape exposure.

For instance Cameron is the leader of the Conservative Party and yet his mind is that of a socialist, and I site Common Purpose as one piece of the jigsaw. Another is his support for Unite Against Fascism, a street gang organized by the Socialist Workers Party and funded by the extreme Left.

Blair is Cameron's idol and he seeks to copy him whenever he can: Libya, Syria.

Let's not forget Brown, Straw Milibands and all the other conspirators.

And why not add in the current "leaders" Cameron and Clegg who gave the war their full support.

You could put the lot of them in boiling water and distill the goodness out of all of them and it wouldn't be enough for Dr Frankenstein to produce anything better than a slimy git.
