David Miliband has apparently contradicted Tony Blair by suggesting that Britain would not have invaded Iraq in 2003 if it had been clear Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction.

Mr Miliband made the comments during a BBC2 Daily Politics debate on foreign affairs and defence with his Tory shadow William Hague and Ed Davey, the Liberal Democrats’ foreign affairs spokesman.
