It is well known that Tony Blair has friends in high places and that, legally speaking, he knows how to get away with anything.
He is known as Teflon Tony because, although bad things are said about him, nothing ever sticks.
His greatest skill is his ability to use the legal system to do bad things — for which the rest of the world must pay the price.
The Home Office recently refused to admit the cost of policing Blair despite the fact that it is paid out of public money.
Tony Blair intervened directly to keep a 24-hour armed guard outside his London home after police attempted to cut their presence to save money.
But the authorities have been convinced that the true details of David Kelly’s death should remain secret.
Vital evidence which could solve the mystery of the death of Government weapons inspector Dr David Kelly will be kept under wraps for up to 70 years.
Today Blair will make a press statement following the Chilcot Report. It is highly unlikely that he will act honourably and accept culpability.
Instead he will blame others or beg for sympathy.
There have been at least five known attempts to Arrest Blair

Come to Popper
Perhaps on the day of Blair’s long-awaited December 11th appearance in Parliament, the chair of the Defence Select Committee, Crispin Blunt, was more concerned with his own views on the then looming Psychoactive Substances Bill, and in particular the statement he was to dramatically made the House in January 2016, in which he outed himself as a parliamentarian with a penchant for soon-to-be-illegal poppers.
The Independent’s Tom Peck wrote a good piece on January’s poppers ban and the pleasures of anal sex with the current chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee, Keith Vaz.
If Blunt took more of a stand over things like Brexit, and the bombing of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya — the matter of something as straightforward as poppers might have been far more easily resolved.
Letwin & Brexit
Yesterday Blunt’s Select Committee hosted Oliver Letwin on the subject of Brexit negotiations.
Oliver “Deregulation Bill” Letwin has been appointed head of the Number 10 Brexit Unit. In this Defence Select Committee video taken today he is questioned about the forthcoming Brexit …
These are interesting times in which the likes of Blunt are supposed to save us from the worst excesses of the Letwins and the Blairs.
We’ll need far more than amyl-nitrate if we’re to stand any chance of surviving.
