Paxman on Newsnight in April 2005 repeatedly asked Blair if he had seen confidential Foreign Office advice that the war would be illegal without specific UN support.
Blair's reply: 'No. I had the Attorney General's advice to guide me.'
Somehow the word 'liar' springs to mind.
Three days before the conflict began, Goldsmith, one may suspect after a good slapping about by Tony's cronies, announced that war would be legal on the basis of previous (and by then rather elderly) UN resolutions on Iraq, despite having explicitly rejected this argument in July 2002.
Both Goldsmith and Blair are to give evidence before Chilcot.
Could be interesting... (the pic above shows Bush and dog - and poodle).
Hat Tip to the ever industrious Mahal.
