If anyone hoped justice might come from the Chilcot inquiry, they should think again.
The grovelling way Chilcot's team dealt with Blair, including at times even helping him finish his sentences, is a case in point.
How can we expect justice from an inquiry that will not determine guilt or innocence nor bring charges?
These Establishment inquiries are all the same, from Bloody Sunday to Hutton the answer is like a stuck record - there's never anyone to blame.
And what of Blair's performance? A consummate actor, he was entirely believable as he protested his innocence.
But what gave it away was his legal speak, as though he were talking about some corporate dispute instead of the wanton destruction of a country, of the deaths of a million people, of 179 dead British soldiers, of four million refugees, of squandering billions of taxpayers' money and of flushing international law down the drain.
