When Tony met the Tribunal

Not strictly a tribunal, but no doubt what this week’s main event has been. I didn’t have high expectations of the Chilcot inquiry, so I’m pleasantly surprised to have found it interesting! I wasn’t working on Friday, so I spent much of the day watching the oh-so-polite proceedings. In some ways Blair got an easy ride – they asked searching questions but let him wriggle out of answering them – but it nevertheless shed great light on his own powers of self-delusion.

I actually voted for this guy in 1997 (there was no Green candidate) so I feel a degree of personal responsibility for the horrors he helped to unleash. I’m not a great one for yah-boo politics, so I don’t join in when people heap personal abuse on him. That said, my incandescent rage at the whole Iraq venture has not abated and probably never will. I do hope we get asked about it……

How cold is my valley?

Who I am

This blog started during the months before the 2010 General Election, in which I was the Green candidate for Calder Valley. It's morphed into an account of green activism...and other meanderings.
