Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Blair Betrayed By Crap Bush, Crap ?

Blair Betrayed By Crap Bush, Crap ?


*

Wowzer.

Talk about about flattening the pair of us with the proverbial feather duster -- in a single swipe.

No sooner do we take our own (satirical), swipe at the Blood-Brothers, Bush and Blair, than sounds of a seemingly serious 'domestic disturbance' are reported as having been heard coming from a certain dwelling in Downing Street; the celebrated number 10, no less.

But, did you, like us, miss this tasty tid-bit when it first appeared in yesterday's Daily Mail ?

Blair 'feels betrayed by Bush on Lebanon'

By SIMON WALTERS

22:57pm 19th August 2006

The alliance between George Bush and Tony Blair is in danger after it was revealed that the Prime Minister believes the President has 'let him down badly' over the Middle East crisis.

What? Don't tell us Tony's actually waking up at last.

Here's some more of the same.

A senior Downing Street source said that, privately, Mr Blair broadly agrees with John Prescott, who said Mr Bush's record on the issue was 'crap'.
So, whadaya know -- who'd have ruddy thunk it, eh? It seems some semblance of common sense is finally being seen by some who should have known better -- eons ago.

Read on.

The source said: "We all feel badly let down by Bush. We thought we had persuaded him to take the Israel-Palestine situation seriously, but we were wrong.

How can anyone have faith in a man of such low intellect?"
Ouch!

The disclosure comes ahead of a mini recall of Parliament to allow MPs to vent their fury over Mr Blair's handling of Israel's war with Hezbollah and whether the recent terror plot in Britain was affected by his role in the Iraq war.

Foreign Affairs Minister Kim Howells, who has criticised Israeli attacks on women and children, is to be summoned before an emergency meeting next month of the Labour-dominated Commons foreign affairs select committee.

Phew. Exciting stuff or what?

Again Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, I don't buy this. Blair seemed to me very extremist concerning the Lebanese situation. I waited for a little understanding from him and it didn,t come. This is just a strategy of escaping what is awaiting him and calming his critics !

People don't be fooled! The lying scumbag is firmly on his knees in front of the Shrub taking whatever comes his way.
This is merely another dose of p/r to try and rehabilitate Saint Tony.
All that we see happening in the TheWarOnTerroris being coordinated by Bliar irrespective of his being in faraway sunny climes.
Slightly off topic, saw Reid on tv today, he's clearly beginning to grow a pair of horns.

We'll all have to wait and see I suppose, but I have my own idea. I think what we're seeing is Blair being set up to go sooner rather than later. Set up from within his own party I mean. I also think someone else is being set up to replace him ~ and I do not mean Brown ~ or Reid.

Er, did I mention? Hell hath no fury ~ like Prezza scorned (once too often)?

I agree with tazmanian, this could be just trying to rehabilitate Blair.

I also thought this comment from the Mail's aricle was pretty cool:

"Bliar is trying to jump a sinking ship, somebody tie him to it"

Poor Tony is so confused he doesn't know which finger to raise!

A agree with Sophia and Taz. It's orchestrated (well, the bit on Blair's views on Bush, anyway). I'll believe it when Blair says it publicly. Anonymous govt sources in British papers should tell us all we need to know.

The quote from this same bullshit source, " How can anyone have faith in a man of such low intellect?" is appalling.

He is blaming low intellect for the product of lies, greed and deceit - or just plain evil.

So if you were to read it as it should have been said - "How could anyone have faith in a man of such deceit and evil?", the nature of the questioner and the answer become obvious.

It's NOT a false alarm this time. There IS now a determined movement within Labour to get rid of Blair, and they have only just started .... IN EARNEST. Just you watch.

Just more spin - does 'Tone' really think this will save his neck?

I'm darned if we all aren't missing something here but, the maddening thing is that I can't put my finger on it.

Sure Blair wants to spin for home consumption ~ but this level of embarrasment to George can cost him just as dearly. Maybe more. His days in Downing street are numbered anyway ~ but to upset the States tooo much could f*ck up his whole future rosy future. Know what I mean?

Whoever, yes, I thought that too. Maybe Blair's team ran it past bushco first (saying - "we gotta do a limited hang-out to improve Tony's image so we can hang in there for the Team. Besides it won't run in the US media, will it?!" But neglected to say exactly what they were going to say.

Anyway, off topic but a very important read IMHO is Israel's Water Wars

Hmmm. There seems to be something not ringing quite true with this one, to me too. This 'leak' doesn't seem like any of the others - not to me anyhow. But like others here, I still don't quite get it ... not yet.

Btw, has anyone heard of any official denials yet? I haven't.

Any labour MP who got the courage to throw Blair out and bring the troops home will be, not only the next labour candidate to the elections but the winner of the elections.
Otherwise, Cameron is going to win the next elections no matter what and he will be wrose than Blair when it will come to ME policy and terrorism !

People around the world are waiting to see some courage from their Politicians, however, courage does not seem to be a comon virtue among the ruling elite...
