Blair Loses Cool, Threatens War Protester

Tony Blair lost his rag after being heckled by a protester during a speech to students at the University of Hong Kong. As the man approached Blair, accusing him of breaching the Geneva convention, the former PM warned menacingly: “I wouldn’t come any further…” Asia Pacific News claims that  Blair said “that’s democracy for you” as the man was led away.

He’s clearly been spending too much time hanging around with dictators…

          Absent a conspicious and lengthy display of genuine repentance, this man of blood – an enemy of innocents domestic and foreign – deserves to be heckled to his dying day.

          And the Lord said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground.” (Gn 4:10)

            Blair is not a Catholic. Catholicism within New Labour is really nothing more than a weird version of the Masons more about making money for a chosen few and keeping the bankers happy just look at the career of Ruth Kelly God really does move in mysterious ways I’m sure she leads HSBC in prayer and self morfication every morning. Quite simply Blair has blood on his hands for engaiging in a policy that took us into a war that should not have happened. Iraq was contained by the existing UN resolutions and sanctioned military action like the no flies zones. Both UK and US intel knew the fate of the WMD programmes i.e. that that had ceased to exist in the mid 90s. The UN inspection regime was in fact working and needed to be continued. Yes Sadaam was an evil man, but the net effect of the war has far out weighed the damage he had and could have done had we cointinued with existing policy. Blair knows this but is in self indulgent denial. A truly appalling man.

      Look, right, you see I’m a straight kinda guy, you know. Just because I started pointless wars, shredded my expenses and now rake in millions from JP Morgan which I channel through a set of companies and ‘charities’ so complicated that newspapers hold competitions to find an accountant who can understand them…… none of this changes the fact that I remain a man of the people, you know, deeply committed to err, principles and yeah, but you know.

      It’s not easy being me. Cherie is always wanting another mansion and another credit card. And the only people who think their image would be, you know, improved by being seen with me are dictators so I don’t have any choice. Modernising education for the challenges of the future. That’s my goal.

        Legal? My arse says:

        It’s legal to start a war based on ‘intelligence’ gleaned from the the internet and cobbled together, faked, falsified and fudged up by Campbell.

        Let’s not forget to ignore the Attorney General’s initial advice about requiring a second UN vote, when it became clear they were never going to get that vote. Just tell him what advice you need, bumg him a few quid and when he comes back next week – BINGO – you’ve got your legal permission to shell civilians.

        Then we could put a banning order for the next 100 years on all the damning documents, so we’ll all be dead by the time the truth comes out.

        Yes, everything is legal when you’re the guy that writes the rules. Just ask Saddam.

            Let’s just concentrate on the facts: Iraq had NO weapons of mass destruction, which was the entire reasoning for the war in the first place. The most disturbing thing is that BLAIR KNEW, and commissioned the dodgy dossier to justify his warmongering and profiteering.

            It is not possible to break nuclear rules if one does not possess nuclear materials.

          Although all you say is true, there is no requirement to ask the UN about starting a war.

          Blair asked parliament, and they backed him overwhelmingly.
          That’s all that’s required. There is no such thing as an illegal war.

          Misleading parliament and sexing up dossiers is another matter. I doubt its illegal.

          There is a great deal to be learnt by so many people – They and many others state that the war was legal.

          The key is the War was Unlawful …. NOT Lawful. There is a distinct difference between Legal V Lawful.

          For example: Many dead soldiers are classed as having been killed unlawfully – ‘Blue on blue’ deaths are generally classed as unlawful with the trick of One Jurisdiction doing in effect nothing when its soldiers are killed by another Jurisdiction. Try UK / USA or in reverse.

          Legal is not the same as Lawful. Illegal is not the same as unlawful.

      In the following two weekend editions several letters were published which ‘tore into’ the culture of excessive pay for CEO’s.

      Not a single city type – refuted or rebutted the published opinions in the letters columns.

      Several Ministers and city-types at the time also came in for a right good ticking off as well – yet they nevr rebutted or refuted the published letters.
