The question Blair didn't want to be asked

"Have you got blood on your hands, Prime Minister? Are you going to resign?"

Kudos to the reporter who hit him with this in Tokyo. It cut right to the point: a public servant is dead because Blair's team callously sacrificed him like a pawn in an attempt to stave off public criticism and discredit the BBC. Blair does have blood on his hands, and everybody knows it; the only question is who he's going to try and dump the blame on. Though actually, there's no question at all - his allies are already trying to pin it on the BBC...
