The former Labour leader is expected to be severely criticised by the official inquiry into Britain’s role in the conflict and subsequent occupation, which will finally be published on Wednesday after seven years. Blair persuaded his cabinet and parliament, many of whom were strongly opposed, to back the US-led invasion on the basis of intelligence about Iraq’s biological, nuclear and chemical weapons.
