The Blair War Crimes Foundation

So at last we have a Blair War Crimes Foundation, something I was pleased no end to hear about. Many moons ago, in cooperation with Chris Coverdale from Make Wars History, I lodged an official complaint of war crimes against Blair and Co with the police. The complaint, I was told later, was forwarded to the Counter Terrorism Command at Scotland Yard. Suffice to say I have heard nothing about it since.

Our rulers, who while sanctimoniously preaching to us about the Rule of Law, are continually busy in undermining and breaking same may feel they are safe enough to ignore us as individuals will nevertheless remain insecure in the knowledge of their crimes catching up with them.

"Blair ... and his collaborators face a new determination on the part of tenacious non-government bodies that are amassing “an impressive documentary record as to criminal charges”, according to the international law authority Richard Falk. He cites the World Tribunal on Iraq, held in Istanbul in 2005, which heard evidence from 54 witnesses and published rigorous indictments against Blair, Bush and others."

"At present, the Brussels War Crimes Tribunal and the newly established Blair War Crimes Foundation are building a case for the former prime minister’s prosecution under the Nuremberg Principle and the 1949 Geneva Convention."

"In a separate indictment, a former judge of the New Zealand Supreme Court, E W Thomas, wrote: “My predisposition was to believe that Mr Blair was deluded, but sincere in his belief. After considerable reading and much reflection, however, my final conclusion is that Mr Blair deliberately and repeatedly misled cabinet, the British Labour Party and the people in a number of respects. It is not possible to hold that he was simply deluded but sincere: a victim of his own self-deception. His deception was deliberate.”
