Tony Blair’s Speech


Here is the text of the address Prime Minister Blair gave in the Commons today, prior to winning the vote to commit British forces to war. It’s quite fine, but reading it, I am embarrassed that I compared it to the St. Crispin’s Day speech earlier. That I did so is a testament to the magnificent oratorical skills of Mr. Blair, who spoke with such passion and conviction.
