The Trial Of Tony Blair

ABC1, 11.40pm, M ( 2007)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PROGRAMS -

It’s 2010, Tony Blair has left offi ce, Gor­don Brown has the UK’s top job, Bush is in re­hab, Hil­lary Clin­ton’s in the White House, and Iraq has de­scended into an­ar­chy. As Blair strug­gles with his legacy and a guilty con­science, the threat of ex­tra­di­tion to The Hague on war crimes charges looms. My

Fam­ily star Robert Lind­say is de­li­ciously acer­bic if hardly true to life in the lead, play­ing Blair as a man of tragic delu­sion, while Peter Mul­lan does dour to per­fec­tion as Brown. For­sak­ing any pre­tence at even-hand­ed­ness, the vit­ri­olic script de­liv­ers a left­ist wish-ful­fil­ment fan­tasy which will ei­ther de­light or re­pel.
