FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Everyone has an opinion on the highly controversial former Prime Minister Tony Blair, with both arguments in favour of and against him being hotly-debated in this live recording. Following the sold-out live event just 2 days later, 'Tony Blair on Trial' is exclusive to and only on Curzon Home Cinema. When Tony Blair became prime minister in May 1997, he had a landslide majority, an approval rating of 93 per cent, and he went on to become Labour’s longest-serving premier. At his last PMQs he got a standing ovation in the chamber of the House of Commons. How things have changed. Nowadays all we hear is accusations of lies, hubris and money-making business deals. But is this disillusionment justified? To assess the record of this extraordinary politician, Intelligence Squared is staging 'Tony Blair on Trial', chaired by Nick Robinson. Levelling the charges against him is Tom Bower, the investigative journalist who is about to publish his most explosive book yet: 'Broken Vows: Tony Blair and the Tragedy of Power'. Leading Blair's defence is broadcaster and Times columnist David Aaronovitch. As Labour’s warring tribes – the Blairites and Corbynites – threaten to tear the party apart, there could be no better time to examine the legacy of the man who reinvented Labour and triumphed in three general elections, but who is now one of this country’s most controversial figures. As they slug it out, Bower and Aaronovitch will call upon expert witnesses to bolster their case.
