We can but dream ...

But I sense the shadows of nemesis are slowly closing in on the Blair creature. Whether we like it or not (and I'm suspicious of 'international law'), the desire is growing for a reckoning for the Iraq slaughter, and the evidence that the war was unlawful is growing too. And if our former Premier is eventually met off his private jet by a group of polite but firm arresting officers, and taken to The Hague to be indicted, it will be partly because of Alastair Campbell's cocky, unrepentant performance.

When the international law merchants grasp that Alastair was in fact not a Press officer but the real chief executive of the British Government at the time, then he too might be required in The Hague. It took a quarter of a century for the past to catch up with General Pinochet, an event I'm sure Mr Campbell personally approved of. The next time may be a little quicker.

My lovely wife walked into the kitchen yesterday and said to me,

"I think they've convicted Alistair Campbell, and they're going to hang him.

That should stop you shouting at the television for a while."

Wrong Ali, but what a lovely thought.

Yes. I'm not a praying man... but there are certain things?

As the Dutch seem to have recently decided that this war was not in any way legal, maybe we can find a friendly judge somewhere in Holland to issue one of those nice international arrest warrants? If it's OK to try to arrest a senior Israeli politician who happens to be in the UK surely it's OK to grab Bliar when he's on one of his sporadic UK visits?

Are we sure we approve of where we're going with this?

If a sovereign state* cannot make war when its government decides to do so (internal shenanigans are irrelevant here), then we're only a short step from that wonderful "World Governance" so fervently looked for by the EU, the Warmists, the UN, and all those other tranzi twats.

Is this really something we want to hand them on a plate?

Personally I would rather Blair got off with it. Some prices are too high to pay.

* Yes yes I know. But we're talking principles here.
