Fifteen Years On

Today is the fifteenth anniversary of the secret deal between Tony Blair and George Bush, to invade Iraq with or without a UN Resolution.

Opponents of that war were called anti-Semites every day for years, so we know about those, often the same individuals, who are now bandying that one around. They are obsessed with certain people's distant pasts, and especially with Jeremy Corbyn's. They are baffled and even hurt that no one cares.

But neither Corbyn nor any of their other targets has ever done anything remotely comparable to supporting the Iraq War. No one with that on their record is morally fit to be in public life. Nothing else begins to come close.
