Sadly, they are probably too busy working out how their idol Tony Blair is going to cover his rear when the Chilcot Report comes out in a month’s time.
I’ve got news for them: Suggesting Saddam Hussein would have destabilised the Middle East more than Blair’s war… isn’t going to cut any ice.
Comedians and musicians are to unite for a special gig to honour Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn .
Following a successful tour, #JC4PM is arriving at the Labour Party conference in Liverpool for two dates, 25 and 26 September, with some of the most talented comedians, musicians and poets in the country.
The #JC4PM tour evolved from a Jeremy Corbyn Night in London that saw over 1,000 people turn out to see a mix of performers and speakers showing support for Labour’s leader. The subsequent tour has seen thousands more people turn out in Bristol, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Croydon, Bournemouth, Sheffield, Cambridge and Manchester.
Tony Blair is expected to defend his decision to join in the invasion of Iraq by asking his critics to think through the consequences for stability in the Middle East had Saddam Hussein been left in power, capable of developing weapons of mass destruction.
In the wake of the publication of the Chilcot inquiry report, friends of the former prime minister believe he will argue that the ultimate cause of the long-term bloodshed in Iraq was the scale of external intervention in the country by Iran and al-Qaida rather than failures in post-conflict planning.
Blair, frustrated by the repeated delays in the production of the report, has been meeting his allies to discuss his response, but is not planning to make any speech or intervention before publication on 6 July.
