DIVISIVE ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair should have been jailed for his part in the Iraq War, according to Hollywood legend Tim Roth.
The Reservoir Dogs actor – who stars as an anti-war campaigner in a BBC drama airing next month – claimed he had “nothing but contempt” and “very low expectations” for the multi-millionaire Labour politician.
He said: “I’ve always felt Blair should be hauled off in handcuffs and put in Wormwood Scrubs.
Roth plays bereaved father Reg Keys – who ran for election against Blair after his son was murdered in Iraq – in upcoming BBC One biopic Reg.
Keys’ son Tom was among six Royal Military Police officers killed in Al Majar, Iraq, in June 2003, and the ordeal led his father to campaign against the controversial premier.
Roth, 55, accused Blair of profiting “from the death of Reg’s son and the Iraq war”.
The star also condemned Blair for refusing to apologise to the relatives of British service personnel killed and injured in the bloody conflict.
He said: “I would like to think he will see this film, I would like to think he could find within him some sort of guilt and recognition that would help him find the words to make some kind of apology.
"On a personal level, if it was my boy, I would want an apology, but I don’t see it coming.
“If a handshake or moment of recognition did come, I would put money on it being in front of a camera, it would have nothing to do with privacy or dignity at all.”
The extraordinary outburst comes just weeks before the publication of the long-awaited Chilcot Report into Blair’s controversial invasion.
The families of those soldiers who died during the Iraq War will be given access to Sir John Chilcot’s findings before its official publication.
Last year the families of fallen British servicemen accused Sir John of "twisting the knife" into their grief by taking so long to publish his report.
The former Prime Minister is expected to come in for harsh criticism in the 2.6 million word report.
