Brady: I'm a petty criminal compared with Blair and Bush

Ian Brady is rambling through the afternoon session of his mental health tribunal.

He's talking about what he describes as "recreational killing".

"I'm as pragmatic as a soldier or a politician", he said. "You don't see any regret from Tony Blair, in fact he's making a fortune from his war crimes."
