London Mayor Boris Johnson joins the long queue of politicians who say they were duped by Tony Blair in 2003 into supporting the war on Iraq.
In truth, Johnson was not duped. He knew, as did the majority of the British public who opposed the war in the largest demonstrations ever seen in this country, that Tony Blair was spinning a pack of lies, not least in his claim that Saddam Hussein could launch weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in 45 minutes.
Johnson now says: “The more I listened to the debate back in 2003 I started to think it probably was a load of nonsense.”
