Tony Blair Tells The Truth (No Truthiness Here!)

As he announced his seven-weeks-to-go before leaving his premiership at end of June, Mr Blair said something people were surprised at.

In his speech at his local Labour party club, where for him his government involvement started in 1983, he commented on what had been achieved by his governing Labour party, then he did something unexpected and stunning.

He said sorry.

Yes, that's right, we'll type that again, so people can take it in.

He said sorry.

''I ask you to accept one thing. Hand on heart, I did what I thought was right. I may have been wrong. That's your call.''

He didn't say what that was specifically referring to but everyone knows what it was tipped toward, the Iraq invasion, WMDs and the civil war in that country.

To Tell The Truthiness ; Hindsight is a great thing and as many people may not believe in what he did, he did what he thought, at the time, was right.

Now if only some other World leaders could recognise that and say the same thing.

Send us your suggestions for which leaders you want to apologise and what for.
