Former Prime Minister Tony Blair was told today he had ‘blood on his hands’ by a bereaved father who refused to shake his hand at a reception following a memorial service for those killed in Iraq.

Peter Brierley, whose son Lance Corporal Shaun Brierley, 28, was killed in March 2003, refused to shake Mr Blair’s proffered hand and said: ‘I’m not shaking your hand, you’ve got blood on it.’

The former prime minister was ushered away and afterwards Mr Brierley said: ‘I understand soldiers go to war and die but they have to go to war for a good reason and be properly equipped to fight.’

The snub came after Mr Blair had been forced to sit and listen during the memorial service as the Archbishop of Canterbury spoke out against politicians for failing to consider the human cost of the war in Iraq.

Mr Brierley added: ‘I believe Tony Blair is a war criminal. I can’t bear to be in the same room as him. I can’t believe he’s been allowed to come to this reception.

‘I believe he’s got the blood of my son and all of the other men and women who died out there on his hands.

‘It comes back to me every day, every time I see a coffin come off a plane; it reminds me of what happened to Shaun.’
