As Blair smirked and simpered his way through his evidence at the Chilcot Inquiry, protesters outside demonstrated against the illegal Iraqi invasion and the buck passing that was taking place in the conference centre.

Numbers were in the hundreds all day, with a ‘Bliar’ handcuffed and on trial outside. At lunchtime the family members of soldiers of killed in Iraq who had been listening to the evidence inside came out to report the goings on and made speeches to the assembled crowd.

As the inquiry finished, around 500 people gathered round the doors to tell Blair exactly what they thought as he left. True to form though, he’d chickened out of facing his ex-public and disappeared, presumably down one of the many secret Westminster exits.
