Tony Blair has said we should all just decide he was right to invade Iraq because anyone who can’t establish definitively the consequences of not invading probably isn’t a decision maker anyway.
Responding to the Chilcot Report, he argued he was right to do the wrong thing because no one can show doing the right thing wouldn’t have turned out to be wronger.
Speaking at a press conference, he said: “At that time I decided it was the right decision to take the wrong decision and I would take the right decision again although there isn’t a day that passes when I don’t think about how wrong it was.
“But let me ask you this: can you establish definitively that deciding not to take the wrong decision wouldn’t have turned out now or at some point in the future to have consequences even less right?”
He added: “No? Then leave the decisions to me, and let’s decide I was right.”
Those calling for his prosecution now face the task of building a machine capable of moving through infinite parallel universes to establish all potential consequence of his deciding not to take the wrong decision.
The Devil has described standard of proof – which would see no one convicted of anything ever – as “attractive”.
