He is one of the two greatest living mass murderers on earth. Getting Tony Blair elected European Union President could be the chance that many of us have been waiting for: to get him in front of a judge and held to account for his war crimes. Tony Blair's bid to become president of the European Union has united the left in revulsion. His enemies argue that he divided Europe by launching an illegal war; he kept the UK out of the eurozone; he is contemptuous of democracy (surely a qualification?); greases up to wealth and power and lets the poor go to hell; he is ruthless, mendacious, slippery and shameless. But never mind all that. I'm backing Blair.
