Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Just As George Bush Did - Now Tony Blair Blames God ...

04 March 2006

Just As George Bush Did - Now Tony Blair Blames God ...

If any of us were ever heard to say we could hear God telling us to start a war and send some mother's sons somewhere thousands of miles away to kill and/or be killed, in bogus battles brought about largely for the benefit of billionaires, and we also said we shared secret conversations with the Saviour -- you can bet your bottom dollar we'd no longer be free to blog.

Nor free to do much of anything else for that matter. Since nowadays there are special secure places for folk making such completely crazy claims. More than likely including claims concerning one on one clandestine conversations conducted with the creator. And on that score we're inclined to intone in unison -- 'Quite right too. Off with all these nutters. Take 'em all to the nut house'.

But, already regularly caught red-bloody-handed, belligerent bomb-happy bastards like Bush -- and now his best buddy Blair -- can quite calmly come right out with such shockingly scary shit in public. Even in front of millions of more-sane-than-they-are, television watching witnesses -- and it seems still stay out of strapped up tight, strait jackets.

What's worse, is that such self evidently second rate homo sapien specimens - cerebrally speaking - should seek to suffer some lesser mortals to 'come unto them' - and their wantonly wicked war-waging ways.

So, In case anyone's been away visiting alien relatives abroad in any alternative universes -- or isn't often sober enough to stand or sit in front of a television and/or radio for at least several seconds or so, and therefore isn't aware -- here's the latest low down, low down.

Apparently God is both jointly responsible and to blame, for our pathetic Premier Blair sending our soldiers to kill and die in Iraq. Because according the cowardly cretin who never wore any uniform other than his old school one, the decision to tag along on the coat tails of mad King George of America was taken jointly -- by both Mr Blair himself and his close associate-cum-adviser, God.

Ah, well that makes all the difference then. Now we understand. So you cannot tell a lie Tone, eh? It was you AND God 'what dunnit guv'. Great. Good. Case closed.

No doubt the war dead are delighted.

Tony - you're a twisted little turd-like twerp. That's just the kind of super-stupid script reading we all needed. You know, in case any Muslims hadn't remembered well enough the rabid, Rambo running America right now [almost into the ground incidentally], cheerily churning out his crackpot cringe creating Crusade chants. Eh? So now little big-brother Tony chooses a prime time television programme to remind them all. Eh?

Bravo. Brilliant. Bloody marvelous. And effing well fantastic too. And we DON'T think. You thick, dim witted twit posing as proper prime minister. Premier wise, we'll wager you'd be shown to be worth no more than minus one on a scale of ten, should any sort of related scientific survey be instigated. And what's more mister, we two both believe we're being much more than generous with our marking.

Meanwhile, while the world waits with baited breath to see what further furor - and perhaps far worse - follows this latest load of faeces, when it proverbially hits the already bloodied blades of the proverbial effing fan ....................... you can read these relevant BBC, Blair interview reports ---- then view these video clips.

1 question for the management... Do you always write in alliteration ? Im not complaining as I rather like it. Its just rare these days. Only recent writer I've seen who does it is Neil Peart from the rock band Rush

Here is a disgusting vidio for you. Yank soldiers complaining theyre not allowed to shoot childern anymore... Must be hard to be a soldier and not be allowed to murder children in your spare time. The yanks must be quite upset. Not to mention rape:

According to the website, on Sunday February 26, a bus carrying 40 girls enrolled in a Teachers institute, was stopped by several US armored vehicles.

The driver was made to exit the bus and sit on the ground.

One US female soldier accompanied by a male soldier boarded the bus and, according to the girls, told them to remove their head covering veils.

The female soldier, who is said to speak some Arabic, then unbuttoned her shirt and revealed her breasts to the girls who were astounded. She then ordered them to show her their breasts.

(طلعوا ديوس!), she is reported to have said, at which point the girls began to scream.

The girls were detained for one hour until the principal/director of the institute contacted the authorities and the girls were released.

Several Iraqi television stations interviewed the girls after the alleged incident, but were not allowed to air the interviews, said the website.

A follow-up article by interviewed Shatha Ma'youf, assistant principal at the institute. She said that the incident occured on Sunday at 1:45pm as the bus was headed to the Islah Al Zira'ii district in Mosul.

An Aljazeera crew interviewed a US spokesperson in Dubai who denied the whole incident and said it was yet another rumor to incite hatred against US forces.

Mosul residents have been debating whether such an incident could have happened.

Another proud day to be american. How do those SOB's sleep at night ? oh, I forgot, the soulless dont sleep.

The real outrage here was that Bliar can walk onto the set of this "non-event" of a "chat show" without a single voice of dissent being heard or a single placard to be seen.

It's a tribute the deeply conservative vacuousness of Idiot TV 1 that this can happen. Bliar should have been booooooed off the stage...

More than shocking! More like mind blowing. Both the bus/breasts report AND THAT VIDEO. Thanks for both. I hope everyone watches that video.


I don't know about being booed off the stage - he should been at least chased off - or perhaps better still, dragged off.

Malamute, I should have replied: "Alliteration, alliteration, alliteration. Always, alliteration. Almost as an art-from."

Heh. As you can see, I like it as well. Plus a tongue-twister or two, too. ;^)

Great post. Enjoyed my visit. The B&B Team claims to have been chosen to carry out God's will and there is no stopping them. Don't know about Tony Blair, but Bush has almost four more years left to do his thing.

What no one can ever answer me is this. Which God do Blair and Bush keep talking about?

It can't be the Cristians' God. No way. In his commandments he say that shall not kill. Also he says thou shalt not covet thy neighbours' wife, oxen, etc -- and I'm sure oil would have been included if had been available at that time.

As I ask all the time ..... WHICH GOD are these liars talking about? IT is NOT the Christians God. NOT-NOT-NOT-NOT-NOT-NOT-NOT

A couple of million people marched in London before this war, to protest it but Blair didn't hear them. But he heard a voice in his head and decided it must be God, did he?

Duh. Either he is raving mad or he is treating the electorate with contempt. Insulting their intelligence and dismissing them with disdain.

He has got to go. And whoever replaces him -- has GOT to have a much smaller majority. It's the big majority of seats in the commons that causes this kind of thing.

Thatcher was only able to get away with as much as she did for so long because of her big majority --- for a while.

Time was that when this country was at war - as they tell us we are now - there was cross party coalition government. Why not the same now? I'd really like to know.

Mark, Great stuff. That's the kind of news I like to hear, or should I say see? Whichever, thanks a lot - it means a lot.

Musafir, Welcome. It's my pleasure, I'm glad you liked it. I took a quick peek at you place, and see we were both working on the same case, eh? As was Mark. Good - the more the merrier.

Anon and me, I hear you both loud and clear, and right there with you both. But as for answering your respective questions - I only wish I could - because believe me, I've been asking myself very similar questions myself - over & over. Sad to say, as yet to no avail

I'm shaking my head here. I had no idea Blair had gone so far over to Bushworld that now he claims to talk to god too. Dealing with our nut-in-chief has been a true test of faith for many fellow americans these past 5-yrs. Tony expresses himself so well, obviously reads real books, seems to have somewhat of a brain, so how did it happen? Do you guys have any idea at what point Blair swallowed the koo-koo koolaid, what was the pyschotic trigger-event, and what could Bu$h have possibly promised him that he's become such a blind-faith follower of bullshit? I shudder to think of many other world leaders being similarly hornswoggled. D.K.

I think you answered your own question without realising it. Just remove the BU & H from your Bu$h. Wait & see how well our Tone does when he leaves office. Carlyle won't be the only one's wanting to throw money at him - not by a long chalk.

Honestly, I thought I was the only one who'd gotten so sick of spoon feeding the truth to the colique public that it came out like this.

"So, they've Snuffed a Sect, next step F*ck up a Federal Building. They did not worry about frequent flyer miles back then, they just hit the next Stuckey's on the way to Washington. Oddly enough, the lack of geographical literacy and the overflowing absolutist mentality worked out well for them. Everything they wasted with their Mid west... Wait Middle East.... ah what's the difference? attitude garnered less public inquiry than a preempted Matlock rerun. To an objective viewer, the OKC bombing was a catastrophic failure. Bomb squad arrived pre-boom, expendable badges, bailiffs and bureaucrats all exitted and were quite explicably not amongst the exhumed and extricated exoxygen exchangers. Sorry, that was way too much adherence to a pattern. Just tryin to make myself known to the Scrabble Elite. Oh, not too mention, the guys who made the bombs forgot to brief the guys who wrote the investigational Cliff Notes, on explosives and exactly what was to be in the explanation. Scrabble Elite, soon... So, 4800#s of Anfo becomes Fat Man and Little Boy to some experts. Not any with any expertise, but what the Hell. And viola! Proof that no one cares what objective viewers think anyways. Personally, I've always suspected that objective was just a fancy way of describing people who don't think like the rest of us and like to argue bout it. Now we'll switch to 1st person view as the action heats up. I'll trim a couple corners, too. Remember, this is fiction, art, not my fault if life imitates it." From The Fall and part 2 The Fall 2 step.

Thanx for showinme I am not alone.

We should start our own religious movement. In God We Trust Inc. Although we don’t actually save souls as Guru's of the Cult, we'd drive some damn nice cars - put me down for a porsche and a bimbo please ;-)

Rev X

Na there are many out there who are sick of it. Too many GD little CS'ing people out there who are more than happy to roll over and take one for the sake of their "careers". Whatever happened to morality I don’t know. I guess the god of money and greed - the god that speaks to shrub and his lap dog blair - offers better incentives to sell your soul than having morals, self respect etc.

You know tho, the spying program in the u.s. also had the blackmail section to it. Ever wonder why the yank congress is so silent ? shrub must have some serious stuff on them for them to play dead like they do. Opportunity after opportunity not missed but deliberately ignored. Its not chance. dems and repugs are the same coin, just different faces.

malamute, put me down for an old austin healey with just room enough for me & my Black Labrador Retreiver in front, my Australian Shepherd in the jump seat & I'm down the road.

And "dems & repugs are the same coin" ... I don't think they are, but I see more & more people registering "independent". Here that means you can't vote in the "primaries", only the "general" election. The British system is intriguing, though. I wonder what would happen if we could have a "vote of confidence" for Bush right now. D.K.

I’ve often wondered how to make politics more open and accountable. It seems to me that no matter what party gets in it’s the same old same.:
Election lies
Ears seal up
Snout in trough
Repeat in 5 years.

In my province we have recall. That is in theory we can remove those who aren't following the will of who elected them. In reality it’s a poorly written law that makes recall next to impossible. Done that way deliberately so that recall isn't possible. In my province we have the ministry of finance (and cocaine) that was apparently supplying cocaine to government. Of course the minister didn’t know what his lackeys were doing… no really he didn’t… then we have the drunk driving premiere with enough alcohol in his blood to fuel a jet. If you or I did that we’d be playing boyfriend to Bruno the Lifer/cellmate. A small fine was all Campbell got and its business as usual. We need a mechanism to remove the riff raff. As amusing as public flogging would be sadly in this day and age it would be hard to apply to politicians.

Part of the problem is that politics to the ordinary person is meaningless. They have no real input. Your “democracy” exists for as long as it takes you to mark X on the ballot and then its time to shut up. Ever wonder why younger people don't vote ? Why should that ? What are they voting for ? To me it seems that its time to take the power back. Get it out of the hands of the few and put it back where it belongs.

Referendums. If the monkeys in power want to pass a law, any law, hold a referendum. A majority of 75% and the law passes. Under 75% and the law fails. Reduce the pay for politicians to make the scumbags slime back to their caves (law offices) and I think you’d go a long way to cleaning up the mess. But it takes participation. Right now its not happening because it cant. The system is designed so that only the rich get a voice. In time people would find their voice, and although corruption wouldn’t completely disappear, it would be significantly reduced.
The next problem is the MSM. In my province the Nisga’a were going through a treaty process a few years ago. In Canada 90% of all media is owned by TWO men. One of these people wrote to all editors of his newspapers and threatened to fire anyone who wrote a positive story about the Nisga’a Treaty. Most toed the line without question or even comment. Some brave people went public (and got fired). It wasn’t a case of Lets Ignore Land Claims. The Supreme Court of Canada told the government they had no options left but Treaty. It’s the same in the u.s. (and I suspect GB and other countries). The rich and those in power have taken over the media and its now just a propaganda wing of whatever group is in power. So make them sell it off. Make it so that one person can own one newspaper OR TV station (not both). Put the voice back into the people. Its why the government is so afraid of bloggers and online news sites. They don't control the message. And our message scares them. I’ve been wondering what sort of a crack down was coming. Would it be making an example of some poor sod to scare the rest ? Now it seems that the nature of the net will be changing. Right now the internet is open. I can easily surf from site to site no problems. There are plans to change that. Providers want to have a two tier system. Peons like us are slow laned while big advertisers and MSM are provided easy access. In short it would neatly shut us all up. The time has come I believe for Direct Action. Take back what is always been ours. The Let Them Eat Cake attitude of those who consider themselves to be the Ruling Class needs to end. Time is not on our side and the government is against us as people. Do you sit there doing nothing or do you take to the streets and demonstrate wherever and however possible ? What will you tell your grandkids in 20 years ? The time to act is now, and the people to act is all of us who believe in freedom of thought and action.

Dylan Thomas
Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
O not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I'm not sure about the bus/breasts thing, because Al-Jazeera has come out and said that they do not trust the source that originally published the story. The story reminded me of those stories that Russian Orthodox fundemantalists like to spread about the U.S. But there is a chance that it might be true, and if it is, well, that's deplorable beyond all measure of a doubt.

Blair's supposed conversations with the divine reminded me of all those serial killers currently in lock-up in the States and around the world. A good number of them attempt to use the "devil made me do it" or "God said I should" defense.

Some, however, are more creative. The guy who turned out to Son of Sam claimed that his neighbour's demonic, two-thousand year old dog told him to go out and shoot people.

Now there's someone whose ingenuity Blair can look up to!

I was a little skeptical about the bus story too, because I seem to recall hearing a very similar story some time back (maybe even back as far as the first Gulf War), but I couldn't remember where or when. So I just chalked it up to urban legend.

I'm sure you've all seen this story in the Guardian, but in case you haven't:

Sheesh. That took a lot of catching up on - but keep it coming - please.

I suppose the easiest way of replying, as is often the case, is to say I don't find anything to argue with. Heh - nothing new there, eh?

I sometimes can't believe my luck in avoiding all the loonies & so on, found on so many other sites.
That recent 'removed' post was the first one since ...... er .... I can't quite remember - I'm glad to say.

One last thing I must mention though, is that everyone knows that there are millions of 'goodies' in the US who are constantly trying their best to change things for the better. And I'm proud to think that some of those good people actually choose - of their own free will - to visit here. Truly.
