Impeach Blair 9


Yet more scandalous reporting from the BBC. They are saying that anti-war protestors are up in arms because Blair said that “God will judge him for his decision to go to war in Iraq.”

That is a deliberate twisting of what Blair said into a more favourable light. I too believe God will judge Blair: the poor bastard has really got it coming in the hereafter. Blair actually said that “Others” were involved in the decision to go to war. When Parkinson pressed him, he confirmed that he was referring to God.

Saying that “God decided we should go to war” is very different from saying “God will judge my actions.”

We know that Blair and Bush had decided to attack Iraq before 9/11. We know they prayed together when they took that decision. We know they pushed on illegally once the UN wouldn’t back them, despite their lies on WMD. We know they killed scores of thousands of Iraqis, and life is a living hell for many millions still living. We know of the pointless sacrifice of the lives of our own troops.

Blair doesn’t just need to be brought down, he needs to be brought to justice. Even before God gets his hands on him.

    I gave up reading newspapers, and stopped listening to the garbage coming out of Blair's mouth, years ago. However, the BBC had me fooled, so thanks Craig for that post.

    I'm afraid I couldn't bear to watch the great sycophant's outpourings yesterday. At the best of times it's grovellingly superficial – or is that superficial grovelling?

    If Blair genuinely believes that God has called him to invade Iraq and all of the other countries that he's sent our armed forces to during his reign (and it's worth tallying those up…) we're being led by a religious fanatic. It's obvious that the only adequate description of this is that he believes he is on a Crusade. One wonders what the reaction of our various multi-faith communities make of this. Perhaps they may view his comments as a direct challenge to their Gods and religions.

    Is this just another catastrophic blunder or are we going to be told that Blair's vision is truly the will of God. Is this what 'doing the right thing' amounts to?

    I thought Blair was elected to run the country, not to take us all on some sort of religious adventure.

    Anyway, where do the Archibishop of Canterbury, the Pope, the Chief Rabbi, the Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim leaders all fit into Blair's World? I think he's in need of urgent medical help, a prolonged stay at the sanatorium and a complete break from his 'Work'.

    This is something I used to say, having grown up listening to others say the same thing: that the prime minister is elected to "RUN" the country.

    When you think about it, though, it's obvious Blair does not "run" the country. Who cleans the streets, maintains our roads, provides us with public transport, delivers our mail, keeps businesses open, educates the young, develops vaccines and cures, puts out fires, tends to the ill and to those who've suffered accidents, solves crimes, develops new technology, creates new fashion?

    Certainly not Blair. You don't need a particularly bright, talented, or hard-working, individual to be prime minister; the U.S. economy didn't collapse overnight after Ronald Reagan entered the White House.

    To say Blair "runs" the country is to give the impression Blair does something incredibly vital and important, something we all rely on, which is giving him way too much credit. Though, that's not to say prime ministers can't do enormous damage or some good.

    Like all British prime ministers, Blair is expendable. He's a puppet of those with the real power and influence in society: financial institutions, heads of corporations, and the rich.

    That's a very fair point, but as a devout voting agnostic I'm commenting on the general aspirations of the New Labour supporting public, rather than my own – if you see what I mean. Hence I specifically did not say that 'we' elected Blair.

    After all, he was re-elected on the basis of a remarkably low turn-out. But let's face it, these manifestos, campaign promises and reactive 'initiatives' are all dross. Read JK Galbraith for a more realistic analysis of real power – and his comments were being made some forty years ago.

    I wonder if Blair is an atheist. Could this stuff about God be another one of his lies? Maybe he uses God as a PR stunt. Why do we believe he is telling the truth when he talks about his "faith". We know he is a liar, so why do we believe this? I think it's just a gimmick.

    "I wonder if Blair is an atheist. Could this stuff about God be another one of his lies?"

    Are you serious, Joonflowers? Blair is a caring Christian, hence why his hands are dripping with blood. Hence why he laughs and smiles as people die. Hence why he claims corporate globalisation, which entails privatising essential public services and destroying people's lives, is "inevitable".

    Blair better hope – because he's betting all right – that death truly is the end, that the universe created itself.

    Apparently, Blair is now going to push for "terminator" GM crops, a "small" favour for his corporate buddies. Spill some more blood, Mr Blair. Smile and laugh as people suffer. Masturbate yourself to an orgasm as children die. Seal your fate for good.

    Thanks, I'll survey his work.
