The Prime Minister has admitted that Britain’s participation in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has cost UK taxpayers over £18billion. He told the Iraq Inquiry that invading Iraq was “the right decision and made for the right reasons".
The war in Iraq has been largely unsuccessful, according to nearly two-thirds (63%) of the British public. A new poll has revealed that only just over a quarter (29%) of voters regard the war as largely a success.
The former British prime minister, Tony Blair, avoided the media by sneaking in early to the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war this morning. He used the back entrance. Ekklesia's reporter Symon Hill went in at the front.
