Movie: The Trial of Tony Blair: Watch Online (this is some really good shit)

Runs: 72 minutes (Naked Gord note: I love this film. It's got a subversive sense of humour to it which is remarkable since it's covering such a macabre subject so well. The mix of rip roaring comedy and stomach turning drama isn't like anything I've seen since the days of The Larry Sanders Show). The Trial of Tony Blair is a satirical fictional documentary, based around the notion that British Prime Minister, Tony Blair is to face charges of war crimes by an international tribunal, following his departure from 10 Downing Street. Directed by Simon Cellan-Jones, it was first aired on More4 on 15 January 2007 and repeated on 5 March 2007 and during Blair's last week of leadership on 23 June 2007. The programme is set in 2010 and stars Robert Lindsay as Tony Blair, Phoebe Nicholls as Cherie Blair, Peter Mullan as Gordon Brown and Alexander Armstrong as David Cameron
