Blair, Bliar Pants on Fire

Tony Blair

Interesting to read that Tony Blair would like to be PM again.

Maybe he’s just made so much money with his public speaking and writing deals that he feels he can sit back for a while.

Anyway, lets look at what he said to the Evening Standard about why he left in the first place:

“I didn’t want to go but I felt that I had to. The only choice would have been to have fought a very bloody battle internally which I thought would damage the country as well as the party.”

So when that whole sad saga was going on, he lied to us when he said he was happy Gordon Brown was taking over.

Then there’s the war in Iraq where we know he lied about the WMD’s.

He was party to the lie levelled against Fathers 4 Justice that they intended to kidnap Blair’s son and he kept secret (lied about) his own daughters suicide attempt  (well known to the media but there is an agreement in place not to publish).

I’ve said before that there should be an offence of “misleading the public while in office’ and if there was, he’s a prime example of someone who would be charged.

I’ve also said that any money made on the back of a political career funded by the taxpayer from memoirs, speaking etc, should be paid back – after all, students have to pay back their loans.

So could he be PM again? Well, he’s a liar, he has more money than most of us could dream of despite his claims for equality and  he’s self serving so I guess he fits the profile.

Should he be PM again – definitely not!
