Blair 'not stalling' on Iraq report

WAR criminal Tony Blair denied claims he’s stalling the publication of the Chilcot report into the Iraq war yesterday, insisting that “the sooner it is published, the better.”

The former prime minister was accused this month by Home Office Minister Norman Baker of trying to stop disclosure of notes he had sent to then US president George W Bush before the war, delaying the report’s conclusions.

The secret communications could prove that Mr Blair pledged his support for the illegal invasion long in advance, which would contradict his statements to Parliament at the time.

Speaking to Radio 4 yesterday morning, pro-EU Mr Blair also warned Labour leader Ed Miliband to “stay firm” on his unpopular bid to deny British voters a referendum on membership of the European Union.

Leaving the anti-democratic neoliberal bloc would be a “massive step backwards,” he added.
