MAJORITY BELIEVE BLAIR STILL LYING OVER IRAQ



MAJORITY BELIEVE BLAIR STILL LYING OVER IRAQ

PUBLIC SICK OF A DECADE OF LABOUR DECEIT

A BPIX / Mail on Sunday poll conducted immediately after Tony Blair's
evidence to the Iraq Inquiry on Friday has found that 8 out of 10 people
surveyed believe the former PM is still lying about the Iraq war.

The poll also found that 78% of people believed Blair lied when he said he
had equipped troops properly.

Commenting, SNP Westminster Leader and Defence Spokesperson, Angus
Robertson MP, said:

"No matter how skillfully he ducked and dived before the Chilcot
committee, his evidence to the Iraq Inquiry did nothing to restore Tony
Blair's tarnished reputation. The former PM's legacy will forever be that
of the illegal, immoral Iraq war and the spin which accompanied it.

"The Iraq Inquiry has been massively damaging for Labour. Those who lead
should not mislead and the public are sick of a decade of Labour deceit.

"Sir John Chilcot and his team are doing their very best to get to the
truth behind the greatest foreign policy disaster in modern times but
ultimately it is up to the electorate to delivery their verdict at the
forthcoming General Election."
