Blair Battered By Multiple Resignations; Is It All Finally Falling To Bits ?


Cor blimey, Mr Blair, is it all finally falling to bits?

Lots & lots of little bits?

Well now, what a shame, eh?

Ha. And we don't think, Tone.

What we really wonder though, is how in the name of heaven it's all lasted so long. And perhaps more to the point, is why?.

It's not as though you weren't warned. It's not like it should have come as shock.

And it's not like you haven't been pushing & pushing your lousy luck, is it?

Well, whatever.

So far today, things have been happening so fast that old codgers like us two can hardly keep up.

The truth is that the way things are going right now, they'll probably have changed again by the time we publish this.

Since even now, we already seem to be spoilt for choice as to which online media links are best to bolt on to our blog.

So what to do?

How about we simply set out a small assortment -- like those listed below ?

Then recommend that readers regularly log on to BBC news throughout the rest of the day.

Here are some links to start everyone off.

Now, they should keep you busy for a bit.

But stayed tuned, friends. Since we certainly suspect there could still be lots more fun to follow.

Latest - Now it's 7 gone.

6 September 2006

SEVEN MPs quit the Government today over Tony Blair's refusal to set a date for his resignation - just hours after the Prime Minister warned Labour MPs they risk the next election by continuing to demand his resignation.

Junior defence minister Tom Watson and ministerial aide Khalid Mahmood - parliamentary private secretary to Home Office minister Tony McNulty - stood down after putting their names to a letter from 17 MPs calling on Tony Blair to quit.

And their resignation was followed by five more PPS's - Wayne David, Ian Lucas, Mark Tami, David Wright and Chris Mole - also stepping down, having also signed the round-robin letter.

Watson and Mahmood were seen as Blair loyalists, with Watson having joined Labour aged 15 before winning his West Bromwich East seat in 2001.

Blair blasted Watson after his resignation, saying he was "disloyal, discourteous and wrong" in a statement, and warning in a letter to the MP that his actions were "divisive".

Well, at this late hour, the fat lady hasn't sung yet but she's drinking tea with honey and practicing her Ma Mae Me Mi Moes....

Heh, it's gone too far for Blair to stop it now. I think they'll settle on an Xmas eviction.

Clare Short was right: Blair should have gone after the Iraq lies had been proven to be lies.

This man is going to have to be dragged out of No 10, nails scratching the carpet... What a Thatcherite he really is.

But will Brown be any better? Surely he sold out quite a while ago. And anyway, why should Brown expect to be handed the leadership on a plate? Whatever happened to proper leadership contests?

So what's ahead? What can we look forward to after Blair? The current Conservative lot are no better, in fact they don't have a clue or any even any pols (or policies) worth mentioning.

Has the man no shame? Has the man no sense of decency left?

I believe that the bottom line with Blair [and his behaviour] is that he is just too plain old, vain -- and greedy, of course.
