Former Prime Minister Tony Blair, suffers from advanced ‘dementia-like’ symptoms, including memory loss and delusions of grandeur, could not recall a Dr Kelly or why the UK went to war in Iraq and had little concept of a moral or political philosophy, medics have found.
A report for the International War Crimes Tribunal found Tony Blair is incapable of reading and responding within four years to a critical draft of, say, a simple Chilcot report and can now “hardly speak” unless a fee of £60,000 plus expenses is involved.
The 62-year-old faced numerous potential charges, relating to offences alleged to have taken place after May 1997. The allegations relate to the deaths of young UK soliders on overseas deployment, many of whom were under the age of 21 at the time. Some Iraqis may also have died.
