While Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry did not look at the legality of the Iraq war there have been calls since its findings were announced for former prime minister Tony Blair to face legal action.

Previously, Alex Salmond said if the inquiry found Blair had made a secret commitment to the government of the United States of America to support the war then he should be taken to the International Criminal Court.

And, a group of MPs are now taking advice on impeaching the former PM which would bar him from ever holding office again.

So today, we’re asking: Should Tony Blair be indicted for war crimes?

we did not slip into a war. Tony Blair took us into a war on false pretences and by hiding the truth even from his own cabinet. The Chilcot enquiry, although stopping short of putting the blame, quite clearly shows that we went to war because Bush wanted to go to war and Blair was prepared to do anything to manipulate opinion here among the public and his government in order to get a pretence of legitimacy for that war. He was Bush's stirrup holder. Certainly guilty as is Bush.

Blair should most definitely tried for war crimes; he still denies any wrongdoing and complacency in the face of that legitimises any further illegitimate warmongering
