Tony Blair

The majority of Brits cannot absolve former prime minister Tony Blair of his war crimes, according to a new poll.

Research published by YouGov revealed that just eight per cent of Britons believe that Tony Blair did nothing wrong.

However, 53 per cent said that his actions can never be excused. A further 15 per cent said it was time to forgive him.

The results were unveiled ahead of the publication of the long-delayed Chilcot Inquiry report, which examines the legality of Britain’s 2003 invasion.

Even amongst Labour Party supporters, only a minority (25 per cent) believed he should be forgiven.

Last year, just 26 per cent of Brits supported the Iraq war.

Earlier this week, Blair called for a “proper” war against ISIS/ISIL.
