"Unreasonable Veto" was the phrase Mr. A(rrogant) Blair used to undermine the UN Security Council veto system which has worked for over 40 years. Now it's come back to haunt him: look at this leaked transcript of the the attorney general's legal advice about the decision to go to war on Iraq. Although the most publicised part of this leak has been paras 26-30 which show that the UK Govt's chief legal adviser had serious doubts about any move to war based purely on UN Resolution 1441, the last para (31, go to the bottom of the page), shows that he also politely but firmly pointed out that Blair was talking shit when he suggested that the US and UK had the right to ignore any veto by a permanent member of the security council, however 'unreasonable'.
