    This appears to be another fine example of selective outrage.
    Actually Tony Blair is a liar

    It's always easier to have official opinions where the truth is never in doubt,
    That is not what he was saying now was it. Pete supported the idea of having the politician removed from office as he won based on documented lies and libel. Obvisously a lieing european politician

    The constituents deserve a representative who didn't lie and play the race card to win and they will get their say. I have nothing but support for the Judges decision.
    That power has been removed from the people and given to the courts seems to have gone over the heads of many of these posters. Now, with the courts vetting the peoples electoral decisions, we'll watch with some interest how this effects Britain over the long term.

    Right now some they like the decision because their guy won. However who the courts favour the next time some politician "lies" or appears to have lied, their responses might be quite different.

    Quite a remarkable transition of power from the people to the courts and, so far, no one appears too upset about this precedent. I think we can expect more decisions along these lines, with the court examining all election winners to see whether any lies were told. How long before party politics enter these decisions I wonder?

    Not sure what post you're referring to but here's what PeteEU said in the post i was referring

    "Which explains the constant lying American media, politicians and in general everyone are doing on a daily basis. The truth has become a premium in the US.. and a rarity"

    Unfounded?

    All the claims he made about Iraq were false now werent they? Read the Downing Street Memo


    I would also only be banned from running for public office if I used lies and libel to influence an election. Not a bad thing in my opinion

    You are making an unproven claim that the man is a liar. You should be hauled before the courts, and this case under discussion sets the precedent. You will have to prove to the courts that you are right, and you obviously haven't done that. Ergo, no political campaigns for you for three years

    Do you get the point?
