Commenting on Tony Blair’s evidence to the Iraq Inquiry, Former Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Sir Menzies Campbell said:

“It is now abundantly clear that Tony Blair’s evangelical determination to confront Saddam Hussein resulted in him quashing any objections to that goal, no matter how substantial they were.


“By refusing to acknowledge the legal difficulties of going to war, Blair denied Parliament and the British public the information necessary to make proper and informed judgements on the issue of Iraq.”
