Tony Blair caught out on war lies

Issue No. 2235

Former attorney general Lord Goldsmith’s written evidence will make things hard for Tony Blair as he faces the Iraq inquiry again on Friday.

In the original “evidence” he gave last January the warmonger denied he had told any lies in the run up to war.

Goldsmith was one of Blair’s allies on government and provided legal advice in 2003. Now he says he was “uncomfortable” with what Blair said in public and that saying war was legal was at odds with the legal advice.
