Editor’s comment: Good. Given that you should be in prison for war crimes, you’re getting off lightly with constant public abuse.

In a candid interview on BBC2’s Newsnight tonight, Mr Blair, who was Labour Prime Minister from 1997 to 2007, said that it did not matter “whether it’s taken a toll on me”.
He said that Saddam Hussein was “20 times as bad” as Syria’s President Assad but admitted that it would take a “generation” to make Iraq safer than it was in 2003.
Mr Blair has repeatedly been criticised for sending British troops into Iraq on March 20, 2003 in the mistaken belief that its leader Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
In the weeks leading up to the invasion, more than one million people marched through London against the Iraq invasion.
Asked whether he minded if “people call you a liar, some people call you a war criminal, protesters follow you; it’s difficult to walk down the street in a country”, he replied: “It really doesn’t matter whether it’s taken its toll on me.
