Tony Blair's ghost

Stop the War Coalition organised a demonstration of roughly 30 people today outside Methodist Central Hall Westminster.

The protesters started to assemble at 4pm, when Tony Blair was due to arrive.

There was no sign of Tony Blair at the front door where the protesters were assembled.

They displayed protest signs with the word 'Bliar' emblazoned across them.

Call for accountability

Stop the War see the demonstration as part of keeping up the pressure on Blair to stand trial for his part in the Iraq war.

The chants of "Tony Blair War Criminal" and "Tony Blair to the Hague" were indicative of this goal.

There were almost as many police at the protest as there were protesters.

The demonstration began to disperse at 5.30pm.
