Sir C. has been wheeled into the latest Iraq enquiry, and boy has he given laughing boy Blair a hard time.
Pulling no punches, he criticised Blair's failure to "defend Britain's national interest" and his simultaneous failure to insist on much tougher conditions for his backing for President Bush. Attaboy!
Warming to his task, Sir Chris shared his view that crazed warmonger and Bush-poodle Blair had secretly - secretly - agreed to go to war at a meeting at the President's ranch in Crawford, Texas, in early 2002, saying:
“There was a large chunk of that time when no adviser was there. To this day I am not entirely clear what degree of convergence was, if you like, signed in blood at the Crawford ranch,”
He even threw in a little soundbite guaranteed to enrage lefties everywhere, along the lines of 'Maggie would've done it better,Tony'. Mmmmmphh! Now that's gotta hurt.
"I think she would have insisted on a clear, coherent diplomatic strategy, and I think she would have demanded the greatest clarity about what the heck happened if and when we remove Saddam.”
Oh Ambassador, with these juicy observations, you're spoiling us.
