Because he took the UK to war based on a lie. The lie that Saddam Hussian had WMDs and could launch them within 45 minutes. Don't get me wrong he done some good things for the country but this is his 'legacy'.

He has charisma this is true. His willingness to jump in with Bush made him an outcast in the UK but celebrated in the US.

We are currently awaiting the outcome of an enquiry about the Iraq war that could see TB labelled as a war criminal.

The rise of Islamic State can be traced right back to the decision to go to war in Iraq. Tony Blair and George Bush have a lot of blood on their hands and a lot to answer for.

If he gets labeled a 'war criminal' then your nation has more bleeding heart libtards than I even give them credit for.

Some say that the fact that Saddam was no real threat and that the numbers that have died due to that war is between 100,000 and 1,000,000 depending on who you ask and that the war has been classed as illegal by international law then war crimes were committed.

Remember the vs (mustard) gas attack against the kurds in 1988 by Sadam, which killed between 50,000 and 100,000 people?

Of course and rightly said. However, this was not the justification for war presented to the British Parliment.
