Unfortunately, the law on this topic very probably is written to make it well nigh impossible to PROVE that Tony Blair committed it. Because there
are various bodies, many of whom have the advantage of being able to hide behind the official secrets act, involved with this case, it makes it even
harder to prove. If he was guilty of treason it would probably be under the terrorism section of the acts which cover the offence.
He certainly didnt act to threaten the safety or life of the Queen directly, or indeed her family. Although it could be said that his actions lead to
a scenario which ended up with the Princes involving themselves in the military. Mind you it could be argued reasonably that they would have ended up
getting stuck in no matter what the fight was about, or who started it, yet another grey space in the whole affair.
However, what one can prove, and what one knows are often two different things. I know that the government do not have the best interests of working
class folk at heart when they decide to bail out banks, allow people to be put out on the street, when they fail to prevent child molesters and
murderers walk free from courts and or jails. But because I cannot prove that they do these things deliberately, with intent to cause harm, I cannot
act against them openly without drawing down the fury of the law.
Men like Tony Blair can do what they do with impunity, precisely because they know how to use the law, and its blinkered, blind approach to escape
justice. Their intent can be as plain as the nose on ones face, and yet their legal liability can moulder in the shadowy, damp realms of the law,
untouchable and virtually unseen by the law itself.
That is why I advocate a stronger importance being placed on JUSTICE. Justice is ,for me at least, far more important than the law. Justice being
served ought to outweigh the importance of fulfilling the letter of the law, ought to be held above all other concerns, moral, legal , and temporal.
Without justice, the actions of evil people live on in their victims, and are far more toxic to the future of mankind, than if justice is served. The
pain of being wronged will remain, but when justice is served the victims sorrow is tempered by the steely resolve that comes of knowing that the
wrong has been measured and the perpetrator bought low, as if by his own hand.
Without it, the whole system of Law is irrelevant to the moral amongst us. If it does not serve the people, then it is against the people. Right now,
the law serves as a smokescreen in all the highest matters in the land, with the majority either unaware or complacent about the abuses of the system
conducted by those meant to uphold its values and virtues. In the matter at hand, of Blair and his scheming and his lack wit American counterpart at
the time, the law serves only to obfuscate, to enshroud the scum, and hide it from the light of truth.
