What Will It Take For Blair And Blair To Bow Out ?

Well, we don't understand it either -- so we're blaming Blogger.

Our latest blog-post - headlined: "What Will It Take Before Blair And Blair Bow Out?" has published beneath the one published previously.

In other words, for reasons we don't understand, you'll need to scroll back down past the blog-post below.


Clear? Comprendo? We certainly hope so - since we're still somewhat confused ourselves.

( Yeah, we know -- what's new?! )

I had the same problem this morning. I had to copy/paste the new one and delete that one then repost the new one again. Bottom line, drove me freakin' nuts!

Hello and welcome, Patricia. I know quite a few people who have lately switched from Blogger to other platforms/providers/hosts due to increasing instabilty & unreliability lately.

Right now I'm still considering my options.

Blogger's been crapping out on me for the past couple of days.

Must be something in the air. Or it could be an Al Qaeda plot! Run and hide! :)))

Here's the latest on how this 'peerages for sale' affair seems to be 'catching up' on the Bliar. And about time too.

*How bad is loans row for Blair?
Analysis
By Nick Assinder
Political Correspondent, BBC News website



The facts are simple and undisputed. Four individuals, at least, made loans worth millions to the Labour Party before the last election.

Mr Blair's poll standing has been hit
Shortly after, those same four men were recommended by Tony Blair for peerages.

Many of the most senior people in the Labour Party - including, amongst others, the treasurer, the deputy prime minister, the chancellor of the exchequer and the lord chancellor - knew nothing about the loans.

And, under rules created by Labour, the loans did not need to be declared, as donations would have been.

Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer has admitted if it had not been for the revelations there would not now be moves to change the rules.

So the questions are as simple as the facts. Did Labour offer peerages for secret loans - an allegation fiercely denied by ministers?

Who actually did know about it, apart from Tony Blair and a small group of confidantes? And why were the senior party figures kept in the dark about it?

Quit now

The danger for Tony Blair, however, is that it may not matter what the answers to these questions are.

The danger is that the "sleaze" tag gets attached to his government, and him in particular.

And now, even some of the prime minister's supporters, notably the Guardian newspaper, are suggesting he should bring forward his departure, to give the party a fresh start.
