That's a step too far.
I understand your viewpoint and ordinarily I would agree wholeheartedly.
In an ideal world I would love to see Blair and his cronies held accountable in a court of law for deliberately misleading Parliament and the country
into an illegal war.
But I think it's even more important that the truth is established and publicised so that everyone is made aware of the deceptive and deceitful
nature of those we 'elect' to represent us.
Maybe when people begin to realise the full extent of the contempt that our politicians / judiciary / senior civil servants have for the people of
this land and the total disregard they have for the law if it does not suit them, just maybe, then they will they stand up and do something about
changing the corrupt, archaic and unrepresentative system they represent and uphold.
Is it more important that we try Blair in a court of law or that we establish 'the truth' and ensure that no Prime Minister / Government etc will be
able to do the same again in the future?
I have no doubt that if The Tories had been in power at the time then Iain Duncan Smith, who I think I'm correct in saying was their leader at the
time, would have acted exactly the same as Blair - but I guess that is just conjecture and if I'm honest completely irrelevant.
I guess my point is that ultimately it is the system that needs reforming - and by that I certainly don't want to sound unsympathetic to the Kelly
family etc and fully understand their desire, and indeed right, to know the truth - whatever that may be.
