Tony Blair gave secret promise to George Bush over Iraq invasion
"Tony Blair promised George Bush that Britain would support military action by the United States to overthrow Saddam Hussein in a series of secret notes written a year before the invasion of Iraq.
"The content of the notes was revealed yesterday by Mr Blair's former spokesman, Alastair Campbell.
"The Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war was electrified by the appearance of Mr Campbell, who disclosed details of the highly sensitive correspondence in a defiant defence of his former boss.
"On three separate occasions Mr Campbell spoke of his pride at the way in which the events unfolded."
