Letter: Hot seat in Europe for former premier? VOICE OF THE NORTH.

Byline: CHRIS HAINE

SO Tony Blair wants to be President of Europe.

It's no surprise: the job of Pope is taken and the United States constitution forbids a non-American from running the White House.

This is the man who, through distortion and half truths, took us into two disastrous conflicts with dubious objectives and even more dubious results, all with the blessing of a supine and complicit Labour Party.

Those Labour members with any sense of principle or ethical backbone would have left Labour years ago.

It's clear that the moral compass of the Labour Party has long since stopped pointing in the right direction.

If he wants a hot seat in Europe, rather than reward him with the top job, justice would be better served if Blair's record in the Middle East was examined by a war crimes tribunal.
