Tony Blair

No faith in what's going on

To laugh or cry, perhaps even pray?

Well, who would have thought it possible, see HERE, faith schools larding it up a bit? This will come as no surprise to anyone who thinks that the very term 'faith school' is a step in the wrong direction. It's really funny that the people who would run such a school succumb to the temptation to indoctrinate small children.

Again it should come as no surprise that under Tony Blair's leadership of Nulabour the idea of faith schools took off. For here was a man for whom the subject of religion was a cameo to perform on the world stage. “Look at me,” his body language seemed to say as he met the Pope.

Stopping the traffic in Beijing

Does Tony Blair have the courage?

Tony gets tough? Tony gets tough?
Our horribly pathetic Foreign Secretary, David Miliband, has been giving us the benefit of his wisdom. He says the President of the EU should be “someone who stops the traffic in Beijing”. He also thinks the President should be Tony Blair. As a liar and war-monger Blair might be ideal but stopping the traffic takes real courage. I'm thinking of the images that went around the world of 'tank man'. Mind you if such a protest was attempted today in London I'm sure you would be shot by the Metropolitan Police!

The 44th President of the USA

Things can only get better?

Man with stick? Man with stick?
It's heart-sink time. I've just heard BBC radio broadcast the idea the Barack Obama (see right) will "hit the ground running". This is awful as it takes one back to the start of Nulabour when Tony Blair began gurning at the nation and also dropped the remark that his Chancellor, Gordon Brown, would to start us off in the right direction by doing this very same thing. The term 'hit the ground running' may indeed be American and comes, so I'm told, from the world of cartoon characters. When I first heard this saying I struggled to understand it, seeing in my mind only a man running along and holding a stick, periodically beating the ground.

"What's the point of that", I thought, unlike Tony Blair, I could not see the merit in it. I imagine Tony delivering this news, eyes almost the size of dinner plates, staring dreamily into the middle distance, his whole body stiffened by a mixture of conviction and zeal, as if to say: "follow me, I'm the anointed one". Well we all know that went pear shaped; Tony took off to do better things, like making lots of money and left Gordon to save the world on his own. But alas Gordon now looks bruised, battered and crumpled like a man who has fallen over his stick one too many times while running, the dream destroyed. I wish Obama well, I say take care and don't rush about, mind that stick.

I can say for a fact I did not know that Mandelson was coming back but did write this in 'How to fix banking' see HERE.

I would imagine Brown has a soft spot for the EU and looks fondly upon the interventionist policies of its élite. While we could never describe Brown as a friend of Peter Mandelson he is, to use that weasel word, a colleague. As we know Mandelson is one of the EU élite and so all is well, or is it?

As Nulabour is so short of real talent that even David Miliband is touted as a future Leader and as Peter Mandelson was soon to be out of a job the moves, chess style, were there for the contemplative folk to ponder.
