Tony Blair on choice to remove Saddam Hussein


Tony Blair has said it was "right to remove" Saddam Hussein from power, and that he would still have backed an invasion of Iraq even without proof of weapons of mass destruction.

Speaking on BBC One's Fern Britton Meets... the former prime minister said his work in the Middle East made him think "I can't really think we'd be better with him and his two sons still in charge".
