Stephen Fry Criticizes Tony Blair for Iraq War


The actor thinks the former British Prime Minister 'had a little bit of a storm in his brain' when he made a decision to invade Iraq.

Stephen Fry has blasted former British Prime Minister Tony Blair over the war in Iraq, insisting the politician made the decision to send in troops while there was a "storm" raging in his mind. The actor and funnyman launched his new memoirs, "The Fry Chronicles", on Monday, September 13 and used the opportunity to take aim at Blair, whose story of his time in power - "A Journey" - was released earlier this month.

Fry admits he picked up a copy of the book but struggled to read it as he is still upset about Blair's decision to invade Iraq. He tells Sky News, "I started to read it... I find I stare at the ceiling quite a lot with my eyes watering and my mouth making shapes that, if you were a lip-reader, you would find obscene. I found it very, very odd."

"I think something peculiar happened inside. I think he had a little bit of a storm in his brain, didn't he? And something went wrong, and we are all very sorry and we are all tiptoeing round his bed and wishing him the best and hoping he recovers very soon."

Fry also joked he is concerned about the public's reaction to his own memoirs after Blair was pelted with missiles by anti-war protesters during a recent book signing in Dublin, Ireland. He adds, "Let's hope people won't be throwing eggs at me. I'm sure I have done many bad things in my life but starting a war in the Middle East isn't one of them, I am happy to say."
