Tony Blair on Good Friday Agreement and Syria

Tony Blair discusses the Good Friday Agreement and alleged chemical attacks in Syria

It is 20 years since the Good Friday Agreement was signed, since Tony Blair felt "the hand of history" on his shoulder. It brought an end to the so-called Troubles but sectarian and political divides run deep and the threat of violence is never far below the surface. There has been no power-sharing government in Stormont for 15 months and in many respects the two communities - Catholic and Protestant - live separate lives. Tony Blair joins us to discuss the Agreement, the latest violence in Syria and British politics.
