Amidst the Labour Party grandees in line for questioning by the police it looks like Tony Blair himself could be officially probed under caution.
It is hardly the Hague International Criminal Court but it is a start and at least we establish the principle that he should be questioned by the authorities"

I think this is absolutely essential and brilliant. I have added my name to the growing petition that Mark Thomas has opened up on the 10 Downing Street petitions website. Please show your support and add your names too. Spread the word folks.
It is important that as many people as possible read and sign this petition. Take a stand and show Tony Blair and his farce of a government that it is Rank Out Of Order for them to ever assume they can sell privileges and that justice should be across-the-board and no-one should ever be exempt from it, including the Prime Minister.
Mark aims to have this addressed and money instead used to work in tandem with the National Lottery's good causes. That means possible assistance for the Arts which should appeal to all of us on here but it goes much further than this. It evens up the score and gives us all a true democratic say in how the country is run.
