Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Psst! Here's a little tittle-tattle ...

Psst! Here's a little tittle-tattle ...

* Posted by Picasa

So where's Wolcott when one wants him?


This Old Brit's just joking of course -- he's actually a huge fan and regular reader of James Wolcott -- who he suspects has, in turn, a soft spot of his own for a certain little lady called Cherie.

Now, far be it it from we Brits to start telling tales out of school [or to be getting into the gossip column business] but take a little look at this.

It is never too late to change course, Clinton suggests playfully. Cherie is “young and vigorous”,

Ooooh! I [can almost] hear you say: "What in the world will Tony think when he hears about Bill talking to his missus, like that?"

But there's more.

“When he’s done and she wants a go, it would please me greatly...

Eh? Gulp! Pardon?!

Shush! Shut up and get a load of this.

She is an enormously able person. I love her.”

I know, I know -- you're thinking This Old Brit's finally, flippin' flipped and gone completely bloomin' bonkers.

But honest, he ain't; he's telling you the truth; read on.

“They may be sick of it by then; it’s up to them what they do.”

But he goes on to make Cherie an irresistible offer.

Uh, oh! Maybe it's old Bill who's gone bonkers.

I’d be happy to do it, I think she’s great.”
If that isn't enough of a cliff hanger or hasn't got you chomping on the bit and rearing to go get more - This Old Brit suggests you should be checked for a pulse.

And remember, if you don't like what you see, tell it to the Times-online; don't start shootin' at us -- we're merely the messengers. Besides, there's been so much sad & scary stuff shoved down our throats lately that sometimes one simply has to stop and smile -- for a while anyhow.

Enjoy! //;^],,2092-1723872,00.html

I hope Hillary never runs for president. She is even further to the right than Bill and will discredit women as politicians for a long time to come as well thus depriving us of half the pool of potential "representation". Though I admire Bill for his achievements, especially in contrast to "W" he was after all really just Republican lite. While the Democrats could do worse, as they did with wooden candidates Al Gore and John Kerry they could damn sure do better. Kerry and Gore represented the heart and soul of the Democratic party and that equals stagnation, never a new idea and trying to out Republican the Republicans. They have to as I see it since the extreme right corporate fascists have the electorate so entirely brainwashed that few would vote for anyone not far to the right or further to the right.

The Republicans have not killed democracy alone; the Democrats and their wooden team players have played an even more insidious role in that crime and the devil take them all. It's fine with me if they have sex with each other's wives, farm animals and what have you all day every day but we need to be shed of them all before we can ever attain to a democracy that represents us all in any sense of the word.

Blair is boycotting Robin's funeral.

Yep, I posted the news at Tapa yesterday, Elaine. Still, it's not really a surprise I suppose. That's about par for the course for Blair.

i saw elaines comment earlier and thought she must have been kidding...

it looks like a really dumb decision for blair.

just about everyone has re-read Cook's pre-war resignation speech in the last few days, and blair 'snubbing' the funeral will exacerbate the image of blair being divorced from reality. similarly, the parallels with bush being on holiday cant help blair.

what an odd decision.

Odd decisions seem to come naturally to Blair & Bush - but maybe describing them as 'selfish' decisions would be more apt, lukery.

Has anyone considered the fact that Blair was probably not invited by Mr Cook's family, to attend his funeral.

He may have been specificaly told by them he was not welcome.

I hope the latter is the case.

I would think he'd be expected to be there, since a public figure's funeral is pretty much a public occasion whether the family likes it or not. So my inclination is to suspect that Blair is snubbing them, not the other way around. Though I would be pleased to hear that they had told him not to come, too.

I'd like to send Tony Blair to the woodshed.

It kills me that Bill and Hillary are so intelligent - brilliant, actually - yet so opportunistic. Both have the requisite abilities to lead the formerly free world, and there aren't too many of those people afoot in the public arena. However, I guess it's human nature at work, but Hillary wants to be President more than she wants to serve the country. That could be said of virtually all who run, but she could become a respected elder staesperson if she stayed in the Senate which NEEDS sane voices.

I don't know much about Cherie Blair - didn't she visit John Kerry before the "election"? Who knows what game they're all up to. No good has come of it yet.

I think that, like any profession, they tend to become intellectually inbred and all the more so in the case of politicians because of the power, personal and communal, and the lack of humility that is apparently a prerequesite for public office. Since ego, it seems to me anyway, clouds the mind and makes reason difficult it is little wonder that many of the most zany characters in history have been leaders.

Bill and Hillary do seem generally intelligent, especially Bill, but again their self interest seems to be their drive. Before they ever draft another child to fight their bloody wars we should consider a draft for high office and a civil service test for anyone to occupy those offices just like anyone who applies for a job delivering the mail only appropriate for the duties of the office. And, especially if it is an elected position, the results made public.

Paul O'Neill, who left this administration early on in disgust worked his way up from a pretty low level government job which he obtained by getting the highest score on a civil service test. He has had a rather good record in public service and as CEO of ALCOA, (other than allegations of excessive pollution) whereas BushCo members pretty much have all failed miserably at all they have done even when turning to criminal methods to cheat their way into power.

There must be many far more qualified individuals out of the hundreds of millions of people not in the public arena who would be better choices. Then Blair, Bush and Bin Laden can go play with their egos all day.

I know I have repeated this idea more than once. It could be worse. I could tell you about my Grandpa's hat trick...

I think Blair's just a coward, like Bush. He knows Robin Cook is a hero, and that he's the villain.
