The Killings of Tony Blair is an upcoming documentary film being co-directed by George Galloway and film maker Greg Ward.

In August 2013, Galloway announced his intention to make a documentary film under the original title of The Killing of Tony Blair to be financed by online public subscription raised via the crowdfunding site Kickstarter.[1] A title chosen for "shock value", the film will be concerned with Blair's alleged destruction of the Labour Party, the hundreds of thousands of civilians who died during the Iraq war and the former prime minister's well-remunerated business interests since he left office in 2007, in Galloway's view, a third "killing".[1]

The documentary filmmaker Greg Ward will be co-director of the project,[2] and it is hoped the film will be released globally. By the end of October, Galloway asserted that three times the original target had already been raised.[3]
