Tony Blair - Roy Harper Brands Tony Blair A Criminal

British musician Roy Harper has launched a scathing attack on the country's former Prime Minister Tony Blair, branding him a "criminal", a "monster", and a "throwback" to the 1980s.
The veteran folk rocker is furious Blair took the country to war in Iraq and he has blasted the ex-leader's policies as reminiscent of those of controversial politician Margaret Thatcher, who governed the U.K. from 1979 to 1990.
In a stinging attack, Harper tells Uncut magazine, "I saw straight through him as soon as I saw him... He was a throwback to Thatcher. He was a mouth with plenty to say, but could he think? I doubted it. I really doubted it.
"He was definitely a monster... I was overjoyed later, though, when a million people took to the streets to protest his war against Iraq. That was a crime. He's a criminal and he'll one day suffer for the lies he told and the deaths he caused. This is becoming a rant, sorry."
