Poll: Two-thirds of British voters feel Blair misled them on Iraq war
Two thirds of British voters feel Prime Minister Tony Blair misled them over the case for launching a war against Iraq, according to a poll in the Daily Mirror Monday.
Sixty-six percent of those questioned in the ICM Research poll said the British Prime Minister had misled them - whether on purpose or not - over the reasons for going to war.
Twenty seven percent said they believed Blair knowingly misled the British people, while 39 percent said the Prime Minister had misled them, but not knowingly. Over a third, 35 percent, said that their confidence in Blair had decreased as a result of his handling of the confrontation with Iraq.
For the poll, ICM research questioned 1,012 adults between July 10-12. (Albawaba.com)
