Last year Mr Blair, Prime Minister from 1997 to 2007, said he would “still have thought it right” to remove the Iraqi dictator if he had known there were no WMD in the country.
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.
