Whenever there’s a sniff of war, Tony Blair appears like Pennywise the Clown to whisper sweet war-mongerings into the ear of anyone who’ll listen.
This time, however, people are asking a very pertinent question. Namely:
Disgraced and disgraceful
Anyone with half a brain knows that the Iraq war was a disaster. People with less than half a brain know that. There are probably single celled organisms with no brains that know it!
And it wasn’t an inevitable disaster either. Because it was sold to us on what can only be politely referred to as ‘total, total bollocks’.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
