Blair and Brown, 5 part BBC2 Documentary started Mon 4 October 2021, 9pm
This could be an interesting series about these brilliant and eloquent politicians.
People will never forget the audacity of Blair and his colleagues in ignoring the biggest and worldwide demonstrations of opposition to the war against Iraq, or the worldwide disbelief in the arguments presented.
But will the BBC gloss over the Iraq war and the unprovoked wars against Serbia, and Afghanistan which constitute war crimes under international law.
Will the BBC dodge the question of why these apparent war criminals have not yet been brought to trial?
Does the BBC know the first thing about international law against war?
“To initiate a war of aggression . . . is the supreme international crime” –
Declaration of the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, 1945. But, to see more of what international law says, please see my blog post, The Law Against Wars.
How often has the BBC ever challenged politicians on the legality of unprovoked attacks on other countries? Instead the BBC has given copious amounts of air time to those proposing war and the death, destruction and human misery it will cause. Criticism of such proposals has been minimal.
