Have just watched the video of Blair not answering questions at his monthly briefing. He had some 27 questions, 11 of which were on the Middle East and his plans to become Blair of Arabia
. Of the 16 other questions he gave direct answers to arguably 5. That is how difficult his position is nowadays – he is simply unwilling to answer two-thirds of the questions put him.
Next month, when Guido’s lobby pass comes through, it could be even worse – assuming he is still around.
