Corbyn supporter hits back at Blair criticism

Richard Burgon MP speaks up for Jeremy Corbyn, whose leadership campaign he supported, after his stance over Syria and other issues were attacked by a former Labour prime minister.

Mr Burgon said "what has happened to Tony Blair was a real shame“, due to the "disastrous immoral war in Iraq” and "chasing money" since he stepped down from office.

He spoke to Daily Politics presenter Jo Coburn, a few weeks ahead of the long-awaited Chilcot report into the Iraq War.
