A journalist tried to arrest Tony Blair for 'crimes against peace' as the former prime minister arrived to give a speech at the European Parliament in Brussels.And what sort of man is Guardian journalist David Cronin?
Mr Blair flinched as his accuser, left-wing writer David Cronin, wearing a press pass and carrying a notepad, put a hand on his wrist and told him: 'This is a citizen's arrest.'
The former leader is then said to have given would-be detainer a 'bewildered and contemptuous' stare before bodyguards pounced.
He studied history and development studies at University College Dublin, followed by journalism at Dublin City University.I think George Monbiot’s money is quite safe…
After writing for a variety of Irish publications, he moved to Brussels in 1995, initially working as a press officer and research assistant in the European Parliament for a Green Party MEP.
He was appointed the European Correspondent for The Sunday Tribune, a leading Irish newspaper, in 1998. He then worked from 2001 till 2006 as Political Correspondent for European Voice, a weekly newspaper owned by The Economist.
