Behaviour of Blair a disgrace

The image of a smiling Tony Blair promoting his book in Easons in Dublin and being treated as some sort of celebrity was sickening.

During his time as Prime Minister, Blair blocked all attempts to expose the full extent of collusion between the unionist paramilitary killers and the British Armed Forces.

The worst massacre of the past 40 years occurred within a few hundred yards of Easons where Blair was promoting his book, carried out by the UVF in collusion with British forces. Efforts to secure the extent of the collusion surrounding that bombing were blocked by Blair.

It is an insult that a man who could have revealed the truth of this mass-murder is now feted as a celebrity streets away from the scene of the crime. As for what section Blair's book should be stocked, I cannot decide between the fiction or crime sections.
