Defined By Iraq
Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair's former spin doctor, had a minor "emotional" moment on the Andrew Marr show yesterday when questioned about Iraq.
Campbell needed some moments pause in order to compose himself.
In his view Blair is "a totally honourable man".
Later Cambpell complained to Sky News about having to talk about Iraq:
"I did get quite upset with Andrew [Marr] this morning. I feel sometimes we are treated in this media bubble... like somehow you are devoid of humanity – you don't really have feelings, you don't really care about things.
I know how much I care about it, I know how much Tony Blair cares about it."
What did he expect?
Campbell's and Blair's lives will be forever defined by Iraq, nothing they ever do in the future will ever free them from that millstone around their necks.
