Jules Lowes, added: “How does Tony Blair have the AUDACITY to turn up to a memroial for servicemen and women who served in the Gulf, Iraq & Afghanistan war.”

Last night Reg Keys, whose son Tom was killed in Iraq in 2003, said: “I would not have thought Tony Blair would have been a welcome face at such a service given we were misled over the Iraq war.”
“I’m sure his ego will not allow him to stay away from it.”
“A lot of families will not welcome his presence and after such a short space of time following the publication of the Chilcot report.”
“Had I been invited I would have gone to honour my son, but nobody invited me.”
John and Marilyn Miller, who lost their son Simon in the same incident that caused Tom Keys to lose his life, were outraged at the decision.
Mr Miller said: “Tony Blair has been invited but military families have not.”
“It is an absolute disgrace. How can that be right?
“We were totally disgusted that we had not been invited. Of course we would have wanted to go, it is a memorial for our son as well.”
