Richard Madeley on Tony Blair going to war in Iraq
Richard Madeley of the Richard & Judy programme, debates the ideas in his film about Tony Blair and the Iraq War with Shadow Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Chief Secretary to the Treasury Liam Byrne.
“I’ve always been suspicious of received wisdom. You get up close to it, it can have a distinctly fishy smell. To accuse a serving prime minister of lying to parliament to the world about Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction is an incredibly serious allegation. And I don’t believe it for one split second.”
Well said, Richard. Now put your signature where your mouth is. Ban Blair-Baiting. You know it makes sense.
This is also interesting. A debate on the Daily Politics programme to explain his views: Madeley debates the video above on the Daily Politics
