John Pilger: Tony Blair must be Arrested under the Proceeds of Crime Act. “The Paramount War Crime under Nuremberg”

Having helped destroy other nations far away, our former prime minister — “peace envoy” to the Middle East — is a criminal.

Tony Blair must be prosecuted, not indulged like Peter Mandelson. Both have produced self-serving memoirs for which they have been paid fortunes; Blair’s, which has earned him a £4.6m advance, will appear next month.

Now consider the Proceeds of Crime Act. Blair conspired in and executed an unprovoked war of aggression against a defenceless country, of a kind the Nuremberg judges in 1946 described as the “paramount war crime”.
