    Blair? I dislike the man.

    I saw on BBC news website the other day that he was at some event in India and had a black eye lol!! Maybe retribution for starting a war based on bad intelligence, and making us a target for Al Qaeda.

    I thought he was trying to fix the Middle East or is that all sorted now?
    Oh yeah it's all fixed...turns out it was all one big misunderstanding!!

    /sarcasm

    Middle East isn't going to be sorted any time soon, there are so many issues to be dealt with...

    I actually thought Blair was quite a good leader all said and done. What leader was ever perfect?

    I don't know. Eyes are typically a very good indicator. You put Gordon Brown and David Blunkett in a room together; you have one eye and one brain cell between them.

    Hold on, that ******* seems to stick his foot in every role going! One minute he's 'Peace Envoy' to the middle east (that's like having Hitler as PE to Israel...) and he's not done anything to help there, so he then hears of an opening in the EU, and off he trots there. He's a lost cause that bugger. As Is that large mouthed spaz wife of his!

    Why not just bring in Robert Mugabe!!! :rolleyes:

    I was shocked by some of the idiotic calls today - some people commenting that 'he's simply a bloody idiot guilty of war crimes', when, in reality, he's nothing of the sort.

    Discuss.
    I'm sorry once I read that, your post lost all value to me. He led us into an illegal war with Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Yes, but I mean seeing as he wasn't technically trialled for war crimes, he isn't actually guilty - regardless of what you might have against him.

    Yer. Its like Boris Johnson. He looks great on camera. Silly and a bit fun. Yet knowing more of his policy I believe him to be one of the scariest men to have ever held political office. He is wrong on many policy, but more dangerous is the way he conducts things. He is a very intelligent man though and he knows how to play the media. An example is when he was planting trees. He said we plan to plant x amount of trees for our environment! Now, that sounds great, untill you find out that Ken had planned many, many more and he was effectivly cuttin the amount of trees London would plant. I could go on about that bloke (and I use the term lightly) all day.

    Well if leading your nation into an unjust war, resulting in catastrophic death tolls for a native populace and then remaining in that country isn't a war crime, then i don't know what is.
