More Excuses for Tony Blair after his War on Iraq

Writing in the The Times about Cameron's recent decision regarding the EU, Rachel Sylvester makes the bizarre suggestion that Blair couldn't 'control' the fact that he was remembered for the Iraq war.

Others might argue that he could indeed 'control' this, by not deciding to join the war.
But prime ministers can't control what defines them. Yesterday Mr Cameron stood up in the House of Commons to defend his decision to veto a treaty designed to prevent the collapse of the eurozone. And, just as Tony Blair was linked for ever to his decision to join the American-led war in Iraq, so the Conservative leader will from now on be remembered as the man who - for better or for worse - permanently changed Britain's relationship with the rest of Europe.
