|Blair and Bush|
Britain's former Labour prime minister is itching to get back into public life. 'Friends' - cover for the man himself - suggest he believes he can help Ed Miliband kick David Cameron out of No. 10 in a 2015 General Election.
Blair's critics charge him with giving George Bush nod-and-a-wink support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq before it was put to either the Cabinet or the Commons; the 'dodgy' evidence justifying the attack being a parallel issue.
Sorry - especially to Jaffa - for my cock-up here yesterday. The rest of my lost post went on to say Blair's hide is tough enough to take the pounding he is likely to receive in the Inquiry's report and he cannot hope to return to public life in Britain until it's published. GC
