Good Riddance to Blair – the man who raised hopes only to dash them

Sunday, 13 May 2007

 

When Margaret Thatcher left Downing Street, I never thought that I would ever feel such loathing towards another person.

I rejoiced when I saw Michael Portillo and other overmighty Tories lose their seats in the landslide General Election of 1997.  I truly thought that Tony Blair’s government would usher in a new dawn.

How wrong I was, how unforgivably naïve, how ignorant of the dark arts of “news management” that enabled the likes of Tony Blair, Cherie Booth, Peter Mandelson, Alastair Campbell, Jo Moore, Charlie Falconer and others to gain, and then cling on to power for the last 10 years.

Of all the comments on the end to Blair’s miserable reign of incompetence, constitutional vandalism, treason, vainglory, character assassination, truth-burying and sheer barefaced corruption, I think Blood and Treasure got closest to expressing my feelings.

Therefore I repeat his views in full.So can I just say that the outgoing Prime Minister is a pious conman; a vile, wheedling dog; an authoritarian creep; a toady of the powerful and a menace to the powerless; a man of blood and an unindicted war criminal; a damp-handed, grinning psychopath; a receiver of rich men’s gifts; a pimp of morality; a breaker of nations and a wrecker of lives; a betrayer of friends and a disgrace to his party and nation; a canting knave; a lickspittle, a wankstain and a cuntbubble; a lying sack of shit who should be encased in concrete and hurled into the Marianas trench. He leaves a country divided – divided between those who wouldn’t piss on him if he was burning in the gutter and those who want to throw him in the gutter and set fire to him.

This lacks a certain nuance, but first rough drafts and all that.

I pray God that there is a special place in the unquenchable fire for such people.

Taking the war to the enemy in Iraq

Monday, 7 May 2007

Javelin missile kills 4 enemy IED layers.Excellent piece (and video of Javelin launch) by Michael Yon
on how the British Army is taking the fight to the terrorists who spend their time laying IEDs (improvised explosive devices) around Basra to blow up our troops.

Hat-tip to EU Referendum.

But what we really need is a government that is prepared to take to fight to the islamists at home before the muslim enclaves in our cities become complete “no-go” zones for our police and security forces. Needless to say, all the “constitutional” political parties, Civil Service, police and local authorities are still too busy making ritual obeisance to the secular idols of multiculturalism and diversity for there to be a shadow of a chance of this happening.

Now, if only we could persuade to French to do an exchange – Sarkozy for Cameron – we might stand a chance.
