Labour leadership hopeful Jeremy Corbyn, a left-wing MP who\u0026#039;s leading the polls, said that former Prime Minister Tony Blair could possibly face war crimes for his involvement in the Iraq war.The long-time MP, whom the Guardian\u0026#039;s Ewen MacAskill characterized as \u0022the anti-austerity candidate, in tune with similar movements in Greece and elsewhere in Europe,\u0022 made the comments Tuesday In an interview with BBC2\u0026#039;s Newsnight.\u0022I think there are some decisions that Tony Blair has got to confess or tell us what actually happened in Crawford, Texas in 2002 in his private meetings with George Bush,\u0022 Corbyn told interviewer Emily Maitlis.He said that the still unreleased Chilcot Inquiry, an official investigation into Britain\u0026#039;s role in the Iraq war, is going to come out, and \u0022Tony Blair and the others that have made the decisions are then going to have to deal with the consequences of it.\u0022Asked by Maitlis, \u0022So should [Blair] be tried for war crimes?\u0022 Corbyn said, \u0022If he\u0026#039;s committed a war crime, yes. Everyone who\u0026#039;s committed a war crime should.\u0022\u0022I think it was illegal war,\u0022 he continued. \u0022I\u0026#039;m confident about that. Indeed, [then-UN Secretary General] Kofi Annan confirmed it was an illegal war, and therefore he has to explain to that. Is he going to be tried for it? I don\u0026#039;t know. Could he be tried for it? Possibly.\u0022Pressed if he would like to see Blair tried, he said, \u0022I want to see all those that committed war crimes tried for it [and] those that made the decisions that went with it.\u0022As Common Dreams reported last month,Veteran UK politician Jeremy Corbyn, a 66-year-old left-winger whose stances against austerity, nuclear weapons, and war have been described as \u0022uncompromising,\u0022 is gathering steam ahead of upcoming Labour party leadership elections, according to new polling released this week.A YouGov poll for the London Times suggests that in the final round of voting, the socialist Islington North MP would finish six points ahead of previous frontrunner Andy Burnham. The poll shows Corbyn as the first preference for 43 percent of party supporters.Corbyn\u0026#039;s campaign, unlike those of his rivals, has been reliant on small donations.
