'Save the Children', please revoke the award given to Tony Blair in supposed recognition of his vanguard leadership on the world’s international development stage.
As an international children's charity the choice of Tony Blair is not only controversial to say the least, as many see him as the cause of the deaths of countless children in the Middle East with damning allegations relating to his role as Middle East envoy and businesses dealings with autocratic rulers and others in the region.

Why is this important?

The former prime minister is central to Sir John Chilcot's inquiry into Britain’s controversial and protracted war in Iraq. 
Earlier this month, it emerged that Blair had signed a multimillion pound contract with a Saudi Arabian oil company in 2010 to broker secret deals on the firm’s behalf with Chinese state officials.
The revelation raised serious questions over the former PM’s diplomatic role as Middle East envoy, and his personal vested interests in the region.
Earlier this year, Blair managed to successfully quash a Serious Fraud Office investigation into alleged corruption regarding an arms deal with Saudi Arabia

    This is a spectacular own goal, which damage the credibility of the charity. The trouble with these big charities is that their five figure salaried directors are isolated from reality and spend too much time courting “the great and the good”; the people who made this decision should resign!

    Does it really need saying again? The Bliar is a genocidal psychopath who should be tried preferably at Nuremberg but the Hague if necessary.
