Jeremy Corbyn has apologised on behalf of the Labour Party for the “disastrous” decision to go to war in Iraq.
The Labour leader was giving his second speech following the publication of the Chilcot Report into the Iraq War, which found military action was not the “last resort” at the time former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair took the country to war.
Corbyn – who campaigned against the war in the run up to the invasion in 2003 – did not mention Tony Blair by name, but made reference to his note to then US President George Bush which read: “I will be with you, whatever”
