    I don’t understand why he’s resigned though. Either he is reacting to a complete personal shock, in which case he deserves everyone’s sympathy, or there is something still to come out that reflects badly on him.

  17. 17
    misterned says:

    Blair is not on trial. He is giving evidence to an inquiry whose purpose to to establish what happened in the run up to war, without attributing any blame whatsoever.

    Balls keeping powder dry?

    I was wondering where this fits in with Balls and his spad briefing against AJ.
    Perhaps this is a nice bit of counterspin

  27. 27
    Polly says:

    So are Both guido and the mail correct?

    Has a copper arrested Al’s wife attention and a Civil servant is servicing Al?

    And what is Balls’ role in this complete load of Bollocks?

    At least UnWed Ed won’t have to worry about this sort of thing.

    a copper’s affair affair is dealt with in 24 hours while. Blair’s affair ( with Bush) takes years (and millions). Expenses scandal took years (and millions), cash for honours, etc ,,,, Way past time to take the ‘elite’ out of ‘political elite’.

    misterned says:

    No I am just telling a disgusting truth. The Chilcott inquiry is not a trial. Blair is not under oath and the terms of reference are set so as not to attribute blame.

    I do not agree with this situation and I believe that Blair should be charged with crimes against peace and put on trail in the Hague for his treachery, but the truth is the Chilcott inquiry is NOT a trial and Blair is not a suspect on trial. He is a former PM giving evidence to an inquiry which will NOT attach blame.

    The media totally capitulated to Blair and willingly acted as propaganda whores in his lies about WMD. They are equally to blame for the unlawful invasion taking place with British troops as Blair is.

    If they had actually done their jobs and investigated the wild, delusional tin-hat conspiracy theories that Blair, Straw, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld et al were expecting us to believe, then they would have easily debunked the WMD threat bullshit inside a day. People writing blogs from pocket change managed to debunk most of it at the time. The media called those bloggers delusional conspiracy theorists and tinfoil hat wearing loons.

    The mainstream media was not just ‘asleep at the wheel’, they were positively colluding with the government to spread lie-filled propaganda and cover-up and discredit truthful debunking in the blogosphere.

    I am and always will remain utterly disgusted at the mainstream media for its role in our road to war in Iraq!

    The Westminster “hacks” were so frightened of being excluded from briefings by Campbell that they just printed what they were told without questioning it. They should be ashamed of themselves. It all started within hours of Blair being elected in 97 when they reported that Tony and Cherie were cheered by all night revellers as they walked up Downing Street and to a man the incompetents knew that the so called revellers were party workers in Moss Bros suits. Their incompetence beggars belief and here we are two wars later and bankrupt.

    This might be too generous but there is one reason that could have contributed: a lack of pessimism.

    * Gold is useful when there’s a crisis.
    * There weren’t going to be any more crises ever again.
    * So Gold isn’t useful.

    Its the whole “spending will be paid for by future growth” stuff Brown used to say. And with thanks to Heseltine: “its Balls”.

    Just remember: even in 2007 no-one thought things would go as badly wrong as they did.

    At the Oil Drum blog (‘CCS’ = Carbon Capture and Storage) – they reckon the lights will be going out by 2015 unless Call Me Dave does a u-turn:

    “In China, new Westinghouse-designed, AP1000 reactors are being delivered in three years at a cost that is reliably reported of $1500 per kW; this is even less than a new coal-fired plant without CCS. (This is the same UK state owned Westinghouse that was sold by Gordon Brown’s government for a paltry £5 billion just two years ago to Japan’s Toshiba – an act of economic vandalism comparable to his sale of a third of Britain’s gold reserves at the bottom of the market in 2003 in favour of Euro-denominated assets.)”

    All very well but GF still hasn’t clarified whether the “twist” is a complication to, or a correction of, his original explanation of the postie’s departure.

    And are we still accusing the gonadal one of spinning against AJ, or is he now acquitted of this, whilst still, obviously, having been previously convicted of crashing the world economy and being an all round hoon.

    I’ve got to say that Guido is reacting to the scurrilous gossip rather than unearthing it. I could have got all of this from BBC News 24, minus all the ignorant foul-mouthed hateful comment, so where would have been the fun in that?

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
