‘The Ultimate Insult’ – Military Mothers Protest Tony Blair’s Knighthood


In the world of elite deep state politics, no bad deed goes unrewarded. 

For his role in orchestrating an illegal war of aggression which took countless of innocent lives, Queen Elizabeth, the country’s monarch and head of state, has awarded former British Prime Minister Tony Blair (to be referred to henceforth as “Sir Tony”) with the prestigious ‘Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter’ – the oldest and most senior British Order of Chivalry.

The controversial move has prompted widespread opposition, including a petition led by the mothers of dead British servicemen – firmly rejecting the Queen’s  Elizabeth award to Blair.

“Tony Blair caused irreparable damage to both the constitution of the United Kingdom and to the very fabric of the nation’s society,” states the petition calling to revoke Blair’s knighthood.

The UK’s Daily Mail reports…

Military mothers have described Tony Blair’s knighthood as the ‘ultimate insult’ while social media users have branded the former-Prime Minister a war criminal and more than 100,000 signed a petition for his honour to be taken back. 

The mothers, who lost their children in Afghanistan, have spoken out against Sir Tony’s knighthood and have threatened to return Elizabeth Crosses which are given to bereaved families to show their disgust.

One military mother, Carol Valentine, told the Mirror that Sir Tony’s knighthood is the ‘ultimate insult’, after her son Simon was killed while he cleared land mines in Afghanistan in 2009.

And Hazel Hunt, whose son Richard died in Afghanistan, was pondering sending back the Elizabeth Cross that her family had received as a mark of protest.

Another military mother, Caroline Whitaker, who lost son Gareth after he was shot dead by an Afghanistan police officer in 2012 said she felt the establishment was ‘making a mockery’ of hers and other children’s deaths.

On Twitter, many made their feelings clear following the ennobling. Political commentator Liam Young wrote: ‘The man should be in the dock of The Hague. What a shameful day.’

Since then, this story has developed further. Their petition now has 500,000 signatures, and some of the heat from this decision has found its way to the feet of British PM Boris Johnson.

Downing Street insisted Tony Blair’s knighthood was a ‘matter for the Queen’ today after more than 500,000 people signed a petition calling for it to be revoked over his role in the Iraq War.

No10 denied that Boris Johnson had ‘any input’ on the decision to elevate the former PM to the Order of the Garter – one of the highest honours that can be bestowed.

As one of the chief architects of the disastrous Iraq War which was based on a series of deliberate lies put forth by the US and UK governments at the time, Blair is widely regarded as a war criminal, and has since been directly blamed for an estimated one million deaths associated with that conflict alone.

Before the 2003 Iraq War, Blair was found to have lied to the public about the preordained nature of the war, as well as making the wild claims that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was on the verge of attaining “weapons of mass destruction,” outlandish claims which never materialised and were proven numerous times to be unequivocally false.
