Tony Blair once said: "Most people who have dealt with me, think I'm a pretty straight sort of guy and I am." And he insists he played it straight over taking Britain to war with Iraq.
Last Summer the Prime Minister made an impassioned plea to draw a line under the Iraq issue, saying
"No one lied. No one made up the intelligence... Everyone genuinely tried to do their best in good faith for the country in circumstances of acute difficulty. That issue of good faith should now be at an end."
