 Revealed: how Blair colluded with Gaddafi regime in secret






This revelation should come as no surprise to anyone.
Blair was involved in and even instigated numerous breaches of human rights and abuses of power ranging from renditions, Guantanamo Bay and illegal invasions to stopping criminal investigations into corruption and the excesses of government departments . He is perhaps one of the most culpable alleged war criminals never to have faced trial and yet he still exerts influence in British political and social circles.
His involvement in the Middle East, both in his role as "Peace Envoy" and his cosy relationship not only with Gaddafi, but also with other equally repugnant regimes in the region are well known and have been the subject of comment and speculation for many years.
Today, notwithstanding all the mounting evidence to the contrary, there are still those who consider Blair to be one of the great British Prime Ministers. Leading "New Labour" to three general election victories, may well be an achievement according to the record books, but the cost of his Premiership and activities since his resignation from the post, have caused immeasurable damage both here in the United Kingdom as well as abroad.
The "Blair legacy" is not one for which we should be thankful.
