The case against Blair: 15 charges that have yet to be answered
From misleading Parliament and the nation to marginalising his most senior legal adviser. The former PM faces the Chilcot Inquiry today:
1. Misleading Parliament over the legality of an invasion
He told the Commons on 15 January 2003 that if the French issued an "unreasonable veto" at the UN, refusing to back military action against Saddam Hussein, Britain could still legally join an invasion. "That is the position that the Government have set out throughout, and it is the position that remains," he said.
We now know his chief legal adviser, Lord Goldsmith, did not agree with this assertion.
