George Bush being elected US president was "the worst thing ever to happen to Tony Blair", according to former foreign secretary David Miliband.
Speaking on ITV's The Agenda programme, Mr Miliband contrasted the period in the lead up to the US-led invasion of Iraq a decade ago with the lead up to the US-led invasion of Kosovo under the stewardship of Bill Clinton.
Reflecting on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq war, David Miliband told Tom Bradby on The Agenda, that:
