Do listen to Surgeon David Nott's moving interview with Eddie Mair on Radio 4's pm on the war Assad is waging on his own people.
Here is Tony's own office's account of what he's been up to. But for Seamus Milne "Blair's self-enrichment from corporations and dictatorships has degraded the office of prime minister. To undo the damage will require a profound change of political direction. Blair himself will never shake off demands that he be held to account for war crimes – even if the system is heavily stacked in his favour. But his continuing role as Middle East peace envoy is a scandal and an insult to the people of the region. He must be stripped of any remaining public authority. His removal is now a moral and democratic necessity."
