BBC NEWS | UK | Politics | Diplomats slam Blair on Mid-East: “The 52 diplomats urged Mr Blair to use his alliance with Mr Bush to exert ‘real influence as a loyal ally… If that is unacceptable or unwelcome, there is no case for supporting policies which are doomed to failure.’

Mr Blair has been a staunch ally to US president George W Bush in pursuing the war in Iraq.

The ambassadors accuse the US-led coalition of having ‘no effective plan’ for Iraq after the war and an apparent disregard for the lives of Iraqi civilians.

They said Mr Blair had ‘merely waited’ for the US to advance a ‘road map’ for peace that had raised expectations of a lasting Israeli-Palestinian settlement. “
