"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Blair, The Sanctimonious Bastard

All leaders have nicknames: Edward the Confessor; Alfred the Great; Ethelred the Unready and so on, so I thought it only fitting that Blair should have one too.

Why can't this apology for a man just do the decent thing and slink away into the night? Must he be constantly on our screens, peddling his version of the truth and "setting the record straight"? What is it about contemporary politicians that they distrust the voters to reach their own opinions and so feel it necessary to write a great tome of self-exculpatory claptrap? They're always quick to tell us that we don't understand, that we've reached the wrong conclusion and they, and only they, know what's best for us.

When Blair's finished promoting his book we'll have Brown touring Waterstone's and the BBC studios putting forward his version of the economic crash and how 'it wasn't me sir, oh no sir, not me, it was global what did it, I'm as truthful as the day is long and as sweet-natured as can be.'

My blood pressure rises a notch or two when I see/hear the Milibands, Blinky Balls or any of the other leftards spouting about listening to the people and change - they had their chance, 13yrs of it, and they failed spectacularly to show their miserable, deluded, envy-ridden ideology was workable.  It ain't, and Cameron moving to the left in order to take the centre ground isn't going to cut it either.

Blair the Sanctimonious Bastard on:

Prepare to attack Iran
Diana was a manipulator - like me
Sex, politics & alcohol
I hate Gordon - he tried to blackmail me

And that's just from the Telegraph. It's also on the front pages of The Guardian, The Independent, The Daily Mail and The Sun though, to be fair, the DM has given prime position to what it calls William Hague's "extraordinary"  denial of a homosexual relationship with his new adviser.  There's a permanent link to Guido in the sidebar.

    "What is it about contemporary politicians that they distrust the voters to reach their own opinions and so feel it necessary to write a great tome of self-exculpatory claptrap" ? ..

    They do it because they have mega egos, they think themselves important enough to worry about how "history will view them" ..

    They can't get it through their self-serving, self-centred skulls that once they're out of office, no-one gives a toss about them any longer .. people are more concerned about being shafted by the ones currently in power .. not the "has beens" ...

    History will view this man as he deserves to be remembered .. as being one of the two biggest man-made disasters to hit Britain in living memory & the sooner he gets that into his conceited head, the better .. so that we can forget about him & concentrate on getting the country back on its feet again ..

  2. Well said, CH. I'm incandescent every time I see or hear their pathetic, whiney and cajoling voices.

    Labour: luring the country on to the rocks.
