Tony Blair-British Gentleman

"I am very sorry that they were subject to such an ordeal and injustice"

The words of Tony Blair who today publicly apologised to the Conlon and Maguire families for their wrongful imprisonment over the IRA bombings in Guildford and Woolwich in 1974.
Gerry Conlon praised Mr Blair's "sincere" apology.

"He didn't have to do it and he did it and that is the important thing."

As Mr Conlon said,Tony Blair did not have to apologise but he chose to do which shows you the measure of the man.He has shown that he is a true gentleman.
I completely agree with those who label him the greatest Prime Minister since Gladstone.

I salute the Conlon and Maguire familes too.After all they've had to endure,finally justice has been done.
