Tony Blair: Was his apology good enough? [Image: Getty Images.]

Good. The sooner, the better.

A group of senior MPs is calling for a vote to decide whether Tony Blair is guilty of contempt of Parliament over his decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

Conservative David Davis said he will present the motion on Thursday accusing the former PM of misleading Parliament.

Meanwhile, John Prescott, the then deputy prime minister, said he now believed the invasion was “illegal”.

Mr Blair has apologised for mistakes he made but has said he stands by his decision and “there were no lies”.
