TONY BLAIR last night spoke of his “pride” in ridding the world of Iraqi tyrant Saddam Hussein.

And he called on world leaders to act together to oust other regimes guilty of torturing or starving their people.

Mr Blair made his plea at a summit of international leaders in London. He said: “Over the past couple of days we have taken the first steps for Iraqi people to take control of their own lives.

“When we have the United Nations talking about 300,000 people in mass graves, then I believe we should be proud that Saddam has gone, glad that he has gone.”
