I haven't blogged about the reaction to Tony Blair's donation of his book profits to the British Legion because, to be frank, it disgusts me. Much of the reaction seems to be unhinged.
The facts are simple. Mr Blair has, for no other discernible reason than altruism, decided to hand over millions of pounds which would rightfully be his, to a very worthwhile charity. The only appropriate reaction is praise. And yet his decision has been treated as - perversely, and without even the least piece of evidence - an admission of 'guilt' over Iraq, and has prompted obloquy.
