The Guardian needs to get some new writers

It seems incredible that Zoe Williams is trying to rehabilitate Tony Blair:  http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/apr/08/tony-blair-labour-pride-war-criminal-iraq?CMP=twt_gu

It's like saying:

Pol Pot did a Very Bad Thing but y'know deep down he believed in equality.

Or:

Stalin may have carried out rather too many purges but don't forget he left some fine architectural monuments (if you like socialist wedding-cake buildings).

Or:

Reinhard Heydrich went a bit far with the genocide thing, but he was a sensitive violin player and expert skier.

But perhaps Zoe Williams just ran out of ideas for her column and chose the most provocative subject she could think of to try to fill the gap.

Perhaps the Guardian needs to get some new writers.
