image for Blair's rousing speech - "Once more unto Iraq, dear friends, once more, Cry 'God for Tony, America, and Crude Oil!'
"Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to War we go"

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair urged the British Government to re-invade Iraq yesterday to protect the moderate Shiites against the Sunnis that are threatening to capture the capital Baghdad. He promised the world that terrorist group ISIS has got weapons of destruction which can strike any Western capital in the world within 45 minutes.

He assured his listeners that the collapse of law and order in Iraq has nothing to do with Britain and America's possibly illegal invasion of that country in 2003 (which he insisted wasn't illegal) and the removal of the vile but stable government of Saddam Hussein.

He said that people who advocate war must be confronted, if possible with an invasion.

Members of Parliament will debate the proposal on Monday, entirely safe in the knowledge that if they make the wrong decision and thousands of innocent people die, they can pretend they had been duped, blame someone else (but not say who) and commission several expensive inquiries that will never produce a definitive report.

The Passport Office has decided to recruit an extra 200 staff to deal with the anticipated influx of refugees likely to arise from a full-scale invasion of Iraq.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
