Blairs spin doctors now spinning their own innocence

Turns out they were all against the war ... really ...

Tony Blair pressed ahead with the invasion of Iraq without betraying any uncertainty to even his closest colleagues, all of whom had "severe moments of doubt", his former communications chief, Alastair Campbell, reveals today.

Mr Campbell records how one of Mr Blair's staunchest allies, John Reid, and the deputy prime minister, John Prescott, looked "physically sick" when cabinet met on the day before the Commons vote to endorse the war.

Mr Reid, then party chairman, "said never underestimate the instincts for unity and understand that we will be judged by the Iraq that replaces Saddam's Iraq, and by the Middle East", Mr Campbell wrote in the first publication of extracts from his long-awaited, but heavily edited, diaries.
