Salmond's Blistering Case Against Blair

Alex Salmond makes a blistering case for impeaching Tony Blair over Iraq.


Alex Salmond has laid out his uncompromising case to impeach Tony Blair over Iraq in blistering style.

"I accept there has to be that finding, that central finding, of pre-determination in the Chilcot Report," said the former Scottish First Minister, who accuses Blair of committing to war without sufficient evidence.

"In your gut, is that what you really think happened?" asked Iain Dale.

"Yes, absoloutely, I've thought that for many years.

"In my guts, in my heart, in my soul, I believe he committed this country to an illegal war."

"You cannot manufacture evidence when you're sending people to their death."
