Tony Blair Attacked Over ‘God’ Remarks
Posted on Mar 4, 2006
Anti-war campaigners have criticised Tony Blair after he suggested his decision to go to war in Iraq would ultimately be judged by God.
The prime minister told ITV1’s Parkinson chat show: “If you believe in God (the judgement) is made by God.”
Reg Keys, whose son was killed in Iraq, said Mr Blair was “using God as a get-out for total strategic failure” and his comments were “abhorrent”.
But Labour MP Stephen Pound praised Mr Blair for being “painfully honest”.
