    Default Sir John Chilcot - Bliar is a Liar

    Tony Blair 'not straight' with UK over Iraq, says Chilcot

    Tony Blair was not "straight with the nation" about his decisions in the run up to the Iraq War, the chairman of the inquiry into the war has told the BBC.

    Speaking for the first time since publishing his report a year ago, Sir John Chilcot discussed why he thinks the former PM made those decisions.

    He said the evidence Mr Blair gave the inquiry was "emotionally truthful" but he relied on beliefs rather than facts.

    A spokesman for Mr Blair said "all these issues" had been dealt with.

    They added that Sir John had also made clear that he believed Mr Blair had "not departed from the truth".

    In a wide-ranging, exclusive interview with the BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg, Sir John also talked about Mr Blair's state of mind during the inquiry and his relationship with the then US President George W Bush in the build-up to the 2003 conflict.

    Not straight.

    That's the answer I would give to Chilcot's reply.

    Ambiguous.

    It's called using diplomatic language and in some ways it's more damning. Everyone understands what he means.

    I'd rather call a spade a spade.

    And a liar a liar.

    Yes, but calling Bliar what he actually is would not get past the swear filter on most Internet forums or media outlets.

    Chilcott calls a spade an optimum logic sub stratum revelation device.

    No, it's "Not a diamond, not a heart and not a club"

    Diamond: Relating to worth
    Heart: Relating to morality
    Club: Relating to friends.

    So Bliar is a friendless, moral-less, worthless piece of...

    Yup, calling a spade a spade really works.
