It may well be that, despite my natural scepticism, Blair will actually be brought before a court of law to answer for his conduct. I’m fine with that. I’m sure most of us would welcome seeing Blair in the dock. We would take great satisfaction from seeing him publicly humiliated.
But we should be aware that this may well play right into Tony Blair’s perception of himself as a noble defender of fundamental principles, misunderstood and unjustly condemned but “doing his duty” regardless of personal cost. Watching his performance as he responded to the damning Chilcot report, it seems clear that this is a man for whom vilification is validation.
Nail Blair to the cross if you will. But be conscious that, in doing so, you may well be gifting this grotesquely deformed ego the ecstasy of martyrdom.Views: 2521
