There was an angry reception for Tony Blair at a book signing in Dublin today. In the kind of scenes the ex-Prime Minister is likely to encounter throughout his book tour, angry anti-war protesters pelted Blair with eggs and shoes. One heroic demonstrator, Katie O'Sullivan, managed to get past security and attempted a citizen's arrest on Blair before five of his team jumped on her. See this Al Jazeera video:
Next week Blair's book tour reaches Waterstones in London's Piccadilly where he can expect another warm welcome from the anti-war lobby.
Update: And here is an interview with Katie herself (note the description of the extraordinary security precautions taken to protect Blair, far more hard-core than anything Robert Harris imagined!)
