Tony Blair Iraq inquiry evidence ludicrous, says Short

The argument put forward by Tony Blair in his evidence to the Iraq inquiry was "ludicrous", former cabinet minister Clare Short has said.

It was wrong to suggest, after the 11 September attacks, that al-Qaeda would team up with "rogue states".

Gordon Brown, then Chancellor, was "marginalised" when the decision to go to war was made, Ms Short said.
