Tony Blair should be sacked as Middle East envoy, say former ambassadors

It is time this supercilious Prat was exposed and booted Butt first for all to see. Don't pass Go, Go straight to the Hague, Blair, for a War Crimes Tribunal like Saddam, Phoney Tony, as YOU have caused the death of far more than Saddam ever did. You and George W Bush both need and deserve no less an end.

Over a Million died for you scumbags!

Former UK prime minister is tainted by Iraq war and his achievements for quartet are negligible, signatories of letter say

A group of former British ambassadors have joined a campaign calling for Tony Blair to be removed from his role as Middle East envoy after his recent attempt to "absolve himself" of responsibility for the crisis in Iraq.

The letter, organised by the makers of George Galloway's film The Killing of Tony Blair, says the 2003 invasion of Iraq was to blame for the rise of "fundamentalist terrorism in a land where none existed previously".

The signatories, led by Blair's former ambassador to Iran Sir Richard Dalton, describe the former prime minister's achievements as Middle East envoy as "negligible".

Other former diplomats to sign the letter are Oliver Miles, who was ambassador to Libya when diplomatic relations were severed in 1984 after the killing of WPC Yvonne Fletcher, and Christopher Long, ambassador to Egypt between 1992-95.
