Tony Blair: not an apology

Tony Blair's decision to give the money from his memoirs to the Royal British Legion is to be welcomed. The money is sorely needed and it will be over £4 million, it is said.

Some normally sane commentators have unfortunately gone all loopy, suggesting he is a man of conviction and puts his money where his mouth is.

This is too much. Blair is said to have made £20 million doing not much more than giving speeches in America on the tough decision to go to war. In my opinion he was merely brown-nosing George Bush, not making a statesman-like decision - otherwise why did he lie continually on the reasons for attacking?

I also rather think that this means there is something else due to come out. We'll see.

The money will be good, but an apology would have been better.
