We all make mistakes and none of us know what the future holds, so time can make fools of us all, but the real fool persists in thinking that his past mistakes were actually strokes of genius or at least sensible and constructive decisions. Such is the case of Tony Blair in the wake of the excoriating Chilcot Report.

Rather than admit that the 2003 invasion of Iraq was a complete disaster that led to the destabilisation of a vast swathe of territory extending from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean and thus a key factor in the migrant crisis that has spread crime and chaos to Europe, and which could even lead to a global economic crisis by causing the collapse of the EU, Blair has doubled down. He is insisting that he acted in good faith—a blatant admission of past stupidity—and claiming that deposing Saddam Hussein was good for the region—a stellar display of present stupidity.

There are those who believe that Blair is a totally insincere person in the pocket of certain vested interests, and while that may be true, it seems more likely that he is both mendacious and moronic. Anybody with the effrontery to make the following statement, can only be a prime idiot of the first grade and entirely worthy of his second "Idiot of the Month" accolade:
"I can regret the mistakes and I can regret many things about it but I genuinely believe, not just that we acted out of good motives, and I did what I did out of good faith, but I sincerely believe that we would be in a worse position if we had not acted that way."
Well done, Tony, and keep up the good work of doing to the Labour Party what you succeeded in doing to the Middle East. There at least your idiocy serves a useful purpose.
