Elevated to the Most Noble Order of the Garter in the New Year’s honours list, Tony Blair was being addressed by two titles this week. Knight of the realm. And war criminal.

For most of us, the latter would take a wee bit of shine off the former. But with Teflon Tony you never know if the barbs even sting. In his case, however hurtful the name calling, it’s hardly a weapon of mass destruction.
