    RECENT COMMENTS at THE BAN BLAIR-BAITING PETITION

    I am staggered by all the hate directed towards our former Prime Minister. I believe that Tony Blair made the Iraq decision in good faith and is most certainly NOT a war criminal. If anyone should be tried at the Hague it should be those in the media for totally misrepresenting the information and facts. The media are to blame for fuelling this hatred as it is purely driven by them. (UK)

    The greatest and most successful leader the Labour Party has ever had with the courage to fight the Islamist terrorists who really would like to kill us all, and you never hear a good word about him.  The herd of independent minds, commentators, activists etc who have never had to make a difficult decision in their lives drown out all debate with their inane chants of war crimes and blood on his hands. Defend him at every chance.  I just wish more people would do it. (Glasgow, UK)
    __________
    Blair was the greatest Labour Prime Minister. It is a disgrace that the party has turned away from his legacy. Shame on Ed Miliband and his so-called ‘new generation’.
    __________
    Have serious issues with the Iraq war, but I understand it to have been a difficult ‘grey area’ situation for the then Prime Minister and that good as well as bad has come out of it.  In any case, the persistent vilification of him is embarrassing and unhelpful, among other things.
    P.S. I think Blair’s other major foreign policy ‘adventures’ as some so glibly denounce them –  action over Sierra Leone, Kosovo and Afghanistan – are among the most noble of our country’s actions in recent decades.
    __________
    Consider why Blair is so well-respected all over the World but so despised by a minority of Brits. (Somerset, UK)
    __________
    This vitriolic demonisation must cease. One can disagree courteously without resorting to attempted debasement of the man himself. (UK)
    __________
    I am expressing my view in this manner because my view on the matter, along with thousands of like-minded people, is simply not heard or represented in the media. (Gloucestershire, UK)
    __________
    He was right to stand up for not only the people of Iraq but also for world security. Rather than this current Prime Minster who just wants the world to “not get involved” (Surrey, UK)
    __________
    Tony Blair is an honest decent man and the best prime minister this country ever had and was a fantastic leader of the Labour Party. He deserves respect and not the smears the press continually reports. Give the man a break!
    __________
    I’m a strong believer that the war in Iraq has been a justified war. The world needs its referee and its concience…more then ever. Raisons to believe Blair took a correct decision to get involved in this war and Europe for its part to? They have responsibilities and obligations to fight terrorism and protect their citizens although  Brussels is very hypocritical about it which is a shame (Belgium)
    __________
    I admired Tony Blair, He made the decision to go to war like leaders before him over the centuries. The media t.v.and newspapers set out to destroy him like they’ve done to other good Labour leaders. Perish the thought if Murdoch gets more power!! (South Wales, UK)
    ___________
    All countries need a leader who isn’t afraid to fight terrorism. I believe Mr. Blair did a necessary job in helping his allies. Are we all just supposed to lie down and wait for them to come for us, I don’t think so (Ontario, Canada)
    __________
    Their purpose is to divide and conquer. This will not divide us, this will only unite and make us stronger.  Because hatred exposes its true face.  Love is more powerful and will rule in the end.  Be in prayer all. (Florida, USA)
    __________
    The Winston Churchill of his age. (New South Wales, Australia)
    __________
    The world is a better place (UK)
    __________
    Mr. Blair is one of the finest politicians to have had the privilege of serving the United Kingdom, and Britons are fortunate to have had him as their Prime Minister.  Time will show that Mr. Blair’s approach to affairs in the Middle East were and remain correct. (Canada)
    __________
    Anyone would believe that Tony Blair single-handedly took the country to war. Frankly, it’s getting boring. (UK)
    __________
    Tony Blair was a great Prime Minister.  It was absolutely the right decision to remove Saddam from power.  Granted, he may not have had WMD anymore, but he had used them before on his own people and against Iran.  I don’t think Blair lied at all, perhaps sometimes the simplest explanation is the truth: the intelligence was wrong.  Blair was instrumental in bringing peace to NI and successfully intervening in Sierra Leone and Kosovo.  He won 3 general elections with landslides.  Truly a great man (Singapore)
    __________
    I am sick and tired of television and radio interviewers asking the same old questions over and over, regarding the decision to go to war in Iraq, presumably they hope Mr Blair will let slip some secret information which they would then use against him. History will show if the decision was the right one, (I believe it was) but people must accept that Tony Blair is an honourable man, and made his decision based on the known facts and not with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight (Yorkshire, UK)
    __________
    Let’s not forget that the media have ONLY one aim in life and that’s to sell tomorrow’s news, and they don’t care who they hurt or what lies they peddle in the process.
    __________
    Blair did what he could and took advice from the British government at the time to the best of his knowledge as to what actions to take.  (New South Wales, Australia)
    __________
    Getting really bored with the persistence with which people pursue their anti-Blair propaganda, steadfastly refusing to see any good in the man.
    I think many of those who are critical of TB seem to forget about somebody called Saddam Hussein. He was someone who left to his own devices again, as was becoming increasingly likely, would have undoubtedly resumed his efforts to obtain and use WMD. He definitely would not have changed his spots. (Middlesex, UK)
    __________
    Tony Blair is a force for good in this negative world (USA)
    __________

    I may have used the comments below at an earlier update. No time to check right now, sorry, folks. But good things about others are always worth a second glance, don’t you think? Especially in this online world of hate and vitriol.

    __________
    It takes big leaders to make the hardest turns in peoples life…Mr Blair is a big leader and a great man for millions of people in Balkans!!! for stopping a savage war! About Iraq I believe that the press wherever it is has not the right to judge on this issue because it simply is too small to judge!! History will judge Mr Blair! As long as it is an ongoing war no one can blame Mr Blair, after all he started something for a big reason..the press its often wrong because it fights for audience!!! (Albania)
    __________
    Tony Blair is a great statesman who led England well. I applaud the leadership he displayed, especially in the matter of the war in Iraq.
    __________
    The media has become, the billy liar of society, believe what you see from your vision, not what you read or what you are told. (Cumbria, UK)
    __________
    You were a great Prime Minister, you did your best and a strong ally of America (USA)
    __________
    Tony Blair was an excellent PM and the world holds him in high esteem.If you want to go after someone start on Bush and Cheney. (California, USA)
    __________
    The best there’s been since I grew up and I’m nearly 70 now. ‘Tis a pity that some have just never grown up at all. (Enfield, UK)
    __________
    The war in Iraq, supported by the Conservatives in the UK, and many other countries throughout the world, was not illegal and did not make Tony Blair a war criminal.  I have great difficulty in understanding where this hatred for Mr Blair comes from, particularly as the majority of people in Iraq regard him as their saviour. Could it be they feel betrayed because Mr Blair left them in the lurch after promising to remain for a full Parliament.  Are they suffering from some form of bereavement? (Spain)
    __________
    The UK Guardian newspaper cannot call itself a newspaper any more. It has a manipulative propaganda organ of the extreme disassociated anarchist left.
    The terrorist lackeys must be really crazy to suggest that politicians like Blair are guilty of any offence.  Why don’t they go for the real terrorists and murderers who are trying to infiltrate and  change the enlightened western world as we know it? (Israel)
    __________
    Although we need the government to work as a team every team requires a leader. Tony Blair when Prime Minister demonstrated the necessary leadership qualities. (Cheshire, UK)
    __________
    Thank you Tony Blair for all you have done to make this World, your country and mine safer. Thank you for having the courage to make the hard decisions when it would have been more expedient and less derisive not to. Thank you for being more like Mr. Churchill than Mr Chamberlain. Most importantly thank you for serving your country when most of us just stand by and complain (Florida, USA)
    __________
    Last week Dominic Brogan of The Telegraph noticed the petition and referred to it at his Telegraph blog.

    Therefore, some of the recent comments are probably due to his covering the Ban Blair-Baiting petition.

    Thank you Mr Brogan.

    Your turn to sign.

      I am sickened by the condemnation of Tony Blair, especially by his own countrymen. He was a highly respected leader and acted in good faith with regard to the Iraq invasion. Had the outcome been positive, he would have been named a hero. Had Saddam Hussein been left to his devices, he would surely have done far worse damage to his own people, the Kurds and who knows who else. His arms stockpile was certainly building up! My best wishes go to Tony Blair and his family in the hope that they are not affected by these small-minded bunch of ignoramuses.

        @ Barbara Offe

        Thank you for this. To me Tony Blair IS a hero, for his part in removing Saddam AND for Sierra Leone AND for Kosovo AND for Northern Ireland. And for plenty of other policies, internal and otherwise.

        Of course none of these successes are taken into consideration by the braindead who call for his trial, and worse. They are the very same so-called “liberal thinkers”, who, if a caught red handed terrorist was being tried, would do their best to work out why it was really “manslaughter” and not the far more serious crime of “murder”.

        Despair? You bet I do.

        Fortunately Tony Blair and his family have learned to cope with this vilification. They ignore it.

        I hope you’ve signed the Ban Blair-Baiting petition, btw.
