Tony Blair at UCL - no comeback for the war criminal

Tony Blair is back in town on the speaking circuit, this time helping to launch a new department at University College London. In a further attempt to extricate himself from the illegal invasion of Iraq - which resulted in hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties - Blair is now billed to speak as an expert on the 'difficult issues facing markets and economies' and perhaps most bizarrely one of the most 'popular politicians in recent times'.

A letter signed by John Pilger, Tony Benn and academics at London universities, including at UCL, has been sent to college management which criticises what is perceived as an endorsement 'of Mr Blair [who] took our country to war against Iraq in flagrant violation of the UN Charter and in doing so committed the international crime of aggression.'
