Former Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ming Campbell criticised Tony Blair for the claims that lack of intervention in Syria, not the 2003 Iraq war, is to blame for rise of Islamist insurgents in Iraq.
"To suggest that this has nothing to do with the instability which we now see in Iraq in my view flies in the face of common sense," the veteran politician told ITV News.
Tony Blair has rejected claims that invading Iraq in 2003 is linked to current violent insurgency.
