Tony Blair - Atonement

I didn't watch all of Tony Blair's nervous interview with Fern Britton the other day. I can't stand the man. However, I saw enough to gain an impression that it was his first step in establishing his rehabilitation after the time when the truth of his Governance of the United Kingdom comes to light. He can see a future in which his lies and deceits, his utter contempt for the people of the UK and the arrogant disregard for the Country's great institutions, like the Houses of Parliament will be exposed. If the current Chilcot enquiry doesn't achieve it, there will come a time when the truth will out, not only about the war in Iraq but also Doctor Kelly, the murdered Weapons Inspector. Faced with the truth about his callow subservience to the United States, it will be clear that he has the blood of our great servicemen and women on his hands.
In an attempt at atonement he is setting up Charitable trusts before the day of judgement in a way that reminds me of John Profumo, the disgraced politician who had an affair with a call girl. Later, his political life in tatters, he devoted his life to Charitable works in the East End of London, for which he was honoured many years later.
Is Tony Blair embarking on his own path of penance. Is it the reason he, so soon after his resignation, sought some sort of refuge or solace in the Catholic Church. After all, they know a thing or two about saying sorry!!
Well I'm sorry, Tony. It just won't do. I look forward to the day when you are tried by the people of the United Kingdom for War Crimes and treason, found guilty and jailed with loss of all pensions and privelages of an ex Prime Minister.
