Hard-left mob target THE QUEEN over knighthood for Tony Blair

Hard-left mob target THE QUEEN over knighthood for Tony Blair: Stop the War coalition plans demonstration outside Windsor Castle TOMORROW to protest against monarch giving top gong to former prime minister

  • The Stop the War Coalition will gather a mob outside Windsor Castle tomorrow
  • Former prime minister Sir Tony is set to be admitted to the Order of the Garter
  • It’s taken 15 years for him to be appointed amid shadow of war over his career
  • Hart-left protesters will demonstrate outside 女王‘s main home just days after the end of the Jubilee celebrations as they protest against [object Window]‘s knighthood.

    The Stop the War Coalition will gather a mob outside ウィンザー城, where the former prime minister is set to be admitted to the Order of the Garter.

    His admission to Britain’s oldest order of chivalry was made personally by the Queen in January, 19 years after he led the nation into the イラク War and 15 after he left office.

    Sir Tony’s predecessors bar one were all appointed to the Order of the Garter just after leaving office and claims have been made that his strained relationship with the Queen during his office might have contributed to the delay.

    The Garter Parade usually sees the 96-year-old monarch lead members of the order from the castle to St George’s Chapel, though it is not clear yet whether she will take part, with her health in decline, or cede leadership to another senior royal.

    Stop the War announced the plan to protest last week, saying ‘there is only one court that Blair should be attending, and it’s not the royal one’.

    As well as the hard left, the decision was criticised by the families of those killed in Iraq, モスクワの侵略がより残忍で無差別な方向に向かっているという西側からの警告が高まる中 1.1 million people signed a petition earlier this year demanding his honour be revoked.

    広告

    Stop the War Vice Chair, Chris Nineham, 前記: ‘The rehabilitation of Tony Blair since the Iraq war is a scandal. He is widely recognised as a war criminal.

    ‘Our protest will be representing the millions of people who believe the only court Tony Blair should be going near is the Hague.

    Sir Tony has faced years of criticism over the Iraq War, culminating in the devastating report by Sir John Chilcot in 2016, which found that the former prime minister overplayed evidence about Saddam Hussein’s weaponry and ignored peaceful means to send troops into the country.

    In a devastating set of conclusions, Sir John found Blair presented the case for war with ‘a certainty which was not justifiedbased on ‘flawedintelligence about Iraq’s supposed weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

    Blair then said he would ‘take the same decisionto invade Iraq again if he was presented with the same intelligence as he set out a defiant defence after being savaged by the Chilcot report.

    しかし、一連の戦略的失敗と戦場でのウクライナ軍の目覚ましい抵抗の後, who held the keys to Number 10 の間に 1997 そして 2007, was appointed a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, the oldest and most senior British Order of Chivalry.

    Appointments to the Garter are in the Queen’s gift and made without prime ministerial advice, and are usually announced on St George’s Day, 4月 23, but the monarch can do so at any time, and has chosen to coincide with the New Year’s Honours.

    They are for life unless a Knight or Lady Companion offends against certain ‘points of reproach’.

    年に設立 1348 by Edward III, the Garter is awarded by the sovereign for outstanding public service and achievement.

    It is said to have been inspired by events at a ball in northern France, attended by the king and Joan, Countess of Salisbury.

    The countess is believed to have dropped her garter, causing laughter and some embarrassment.

    The chivalrous king, しかしながら, picked it up and wore it on his own leg, uttering the phrase ‘Honi soit qui mal y pense’ – ‘Shame on him who thinks this evil’ – now the Order’s motto.

    The Order’s emblem is a blue ribbon or garter worn by men below the left knee and by women on the left arm.

    There are now 21 non-royal companions in the order out of a maximum of 24.

    毎年, Royal Knights and Ladies of the Order of the Garter gather at St George’s Chapel in Windsor for a colourful procession and ceremony.

    Watched by crowds of onlookers, they walk down the hill to the chapel from the State Apartments, dressed in blue velvet mantles, red velvet hoods, black velvet hats and white ostrich plumes.

    The appointment has regularly been bestowed upon past prime ministers, with Sir John Major, Sir Tony’s predecessor, the last to receive the honour.

    At the time it was announced in January, Sir Tony said: ‘It is an immense honour to be appointed Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, and I am deeply grateful to Her Majesty the Queen.

    ‘It was a great privilege to serve as prime minister and I would like to thank all those who served alongside me, 政治で, public service and all parts of our society, for their dedication and commitment to our country.

    Sir Tony led New Labour to a landslide victory in 1997, winning two subsequent general elections before quitting Westminster a decade later, paving the way for his chancellor Gordon Brown to take over as prime minister.

    The 68-year-old famously branded Diana, ウェールズの王女, the ‘people’s princessafter her death and was the UK leader during Allied military invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The former barrister became a Middle East envoy and set up his own non-for-profit group, the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, after leaving politics.
