- Tony Blair 'godfather to Rupert Murdoch's daughter'…
It’s quite difficult to think of anything positive about Tony Blair.
Pfft! So cynical! Just look at all the good he’s done since he was Middle East peace envoy. The Gaza Strip and West Bank are calm and peaceful, just like Switzerland now I hear. Its population living alongside its neighbours in peace and contentment

John Major as chancellor: ‘high unemployment is a price worth paying…’ vs Blair and Brown’s longest period of sustained economic growth since forever. I know who I’d chose. In fact I’d take Blair over the current shitbags any day of the week
Comparing the recession of the early 90’s to the crapfest that Brown presided over is very unfair. The labour government carried on the Conservatives (restrained) spending plans for the first year or two, then they went mental and Gordon spent the family warchest. The sustained economic growth they oversaw was built on dodgy foundations.Posted 6 years ago
Its similar in America…Obama getting a hard time for having to clear up the mess that Bush left. Do the electorate really have such a short memory?CHBSubscriber
Actually mrmo, half the poulation are below the median intelligence. Not sure how many are below average.
I’m gonna steer clear if your family saves up for wars.
If you are a tax payer then you do save up for wars, yes even the rubbish unjustified ones that we slavishly enter because some nut job in Washington wants to make his pappa proud.Posted 6 years agograntusMember
…and half – or less than half – bother to vote anyway!
Was always a labour voter until Blair became party leader. Never liked him. All the cool britannia stuff really stuck in my craw.
Guys like Major and Ken Clarke, for example, I may never agree with their politics but I think they are decent men – although I hadn’t heard the high unemployment quote before. Kind of makes me change my mind about Major a bit if that’s what he said.Posted 6 years ago
