Apocalypse Blair 147


While Gaza writhes in agony, Middle East Peace Envoy Tony Blair’s private jet last week was in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Two months earlier Blair had certainly visited Las Vegas and Los Angeles on the same journey. In Las Vegas Blair was paid a large but undisclosed sum to attend a conference of hedge fund managers. His meetings in Los Angeles were “private”.

I have been unable to discover whether Blair was on his jet last week, or it was Cherie shopping or Alistair Campbell following up on the “business opportunities” for Blair from the July meetings. But he was not evidently in the Middle East. Just before the jet left for the USA he was in Britain hosting a lavish and deeply tasteless birthday party for his wife, two months before her birthday.

Yesterday the Guardian announced Blair’s new role as adviser to the Government of Azerbaijan, to add to the money he gets from advising Sisi of Egypt, Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan, numerous Gulf despots and any other dictator who does not realise that the Blair brand has become even more toxic than their own.

Blair’s attendance at the July conference of hedge fund managers was appropriate, as they are the epitome of the heartless irresponsibility and short term financial outlook of the new capitalism which Blair so heartily embraced. His fellow guest speaker at that conference was Francis Ford Coppola. I went to bed last night mulling this article and the aptness of combination of Tony Blair and Apocalypse Now.

Then I woke up this morning to the news that after twenty years of peace fighting had broken out between Blair’s brand new client, Azerbaijan, and Armenia. The man really is cursed. Perhaps once you voluntarily brought so much war and terrible death, there is no way to stop. Apocalypse Blair. He should rename that private jet The Four Horsemen.

    Gaza – Renewed Israeli shelling killed at least 30 people in Gaza on Sunday after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to keep up pressure on Hamas even after the army completes its core mission of destroying a tunnel network that extends into Israel.

    Craig, have you any updates as to how Galloway’s film on Blair is going? Weren’t you interviewed as part of the film?

  • Enoch

    Mr Blair was and is rather more successful than you (you can’t even get elected to parliament, let alone win 3 general elections). You’d be taken more seriously if you stopped your petty, silly, personal insults and didn’t claim to have seen ghosts in the jungle.

    You sometimes make good points, but no-one will ever take you seriously. You marginalized yourself.

    Too bad.

    Gazza will writhe in agony until he quits the booze.
    I could nae understand the rest of yer shite, but I do believe the Zionist booze-fuelled coke-snorters are behind it all.

    I advocate a two state solution: Jews to the west, Palestinians to the east. Border, the river Jordan.

    Oh, wait a moment – didn’t we already get that some years ago, backed by your beloved UN?

    Just don’t get me started on David Icke or lizard-lords, OK?

  • Tris

    Blair makes my flesh creep. I’ve never heard anyone except his New Labour cronies with a good word to say for him.

  • Fedup

    Mr Blair was and is rather more successful than you (you can’t even get elected to parliament, let alone win 3 general elections).

    The fact that Miranda the war criminal “won” three elections is further indictment of the corruption of the systems peddled as “democratic” processes; through the phony placebo process of votes cast and ballot boxes that clearly does not represent or remotely reflect the people power, but only reiterates the existence of the screens and filters arrangements set up by apparently mysterious influences and hidden rules of selection exercised by a secret clique/cabal that are reluctant to attract any attention to themselves.

    This notion is further highlighted by the conciliatory “you give up being a throne”:

    You’d be taken more seriously if you stopped your petty, silly, personal insults and didn’t claim to have seen ghosts in the jungle.

    You sometimes make good points, but no-one will ever take you seriously. You marginalized yourself.

    Clearly the messages are hitting home and there is an ouch factor, thus the relevant paid lickspittle put on an appearance and blow the mandatory dog whistle.

    Now a dog whistle for you; Be assured that bLiar will finally end up in Hague and he will stand humiliated, and forlorn, after all any supine feral monkey cannot mount the alpha monkeys’ female and get away with it, specially the female that belonged to the alpha monkey who was the one who had the last interview and gave the node for the feral monkey to “win”

    Bobby Davro?

    Wow,the Blairs may be loaded but they have no class at all…we’ve known that for years though.

    A Middle East peace envoy who never goes near the Middle East…

    Too busy enriching himself dealing with grotesque dictators,faux-pious guff Faith Foundations and NeoCon arselicking.

    Blair is a charlatan of the highest order.

    He probably stopped in LA for a Dengerous Liaison.

    Murdoch was probably watching.

    Bobby Davro ffs!…lolzzzzz

    Fedup. We seem to agree that ISIS is a UKUSIS creation.

    All political parties and Islamic parties in Kurdistan agreed to the use of ISIS to break the deadlock between Maliki and Kurduistan.

    We assume therefore that USUKIS created the deadlock by telling Maliki not to pay Kurdistan so that they could have an excuse to arm and use their head-chopping terrorists.

    USUKIS want Islam to become a religion of mindless violence, such as we have witnessed in Gaza, and Libya, and Afghanistan and Pakistan and Somalia, and Nigeria, and Sudan and Iraq.

    All Islamists are sponsored and controlled by USUKIS and all Islamists can win elections using the slogans of Islam to fool the people that they represent Islam. In fact they represent only USUKIS.

    IN Islam, Muslims do not have permission to make confederations with the enemies of Islam, such as USUKIS. So if their political strategy of confederacy with the enemies of Islam fails, as it has done in Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, Syria and now in Palestine, it is because they are disobeying Islam.

    The sole purpose of the false Jihad of USUKIS is to weaken and de-stabilise countries which have oil, water and mineral resources.

    The most to blame for the failure of political Islam will be the most senior Muslim leaders who have donated the most to the false jihad of USUKIS, which are Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

    Second in the queue are those Islamic leaders who have co-operated and contributed logistically to the false jihad, such as Kurdistan, Turkey, Egypt when Mursi was in power, Hamas etc.

    They are the ones who hold most responsibility for gambling with the lives of civilians and losing to USUKIS superior firepower.

    Any Muslim who makes a confederacy with the enemies of Islam for Jihad, not for a peaceful truce, is what the prophet SAW called the Dogs of Hell. They have exposed the innocent Muslim men women and children to the violence of warfare, for their own pride and egos and worldly glory and power.

    Shame on all the Muslim Rulers that I have mentioned, and shame on the ignorant Muslims who have participated in these false jihads.

    Between the lines, he was nowhere near the MidEast this week. He could only have been in the Mid East one day at most the previous week, and I have found no indication that he was.

    More as I get it. The pig is poisoned and limping.

    The World is under the control of a bunch of psychopaths like Blair. They should all be in a straight jacket in a padded cell…

    But these psychopaths are all out in the open holding the equivalent of nuclear armed massive grenades – and they have taken the pins out….

    What exactly can anyone do???

    You can’t just shoot them dead – cos then they would let go – and blow up the entire world.

    How about making them a nice cup of tea, and gently suggest they put the pins back?

    “Sinjar had been controlled by Kurdish troops but they withdrew on Sunday, the second consecutive day of losses for the peshmerga fighters, who also lost the town of Zumar and two nearby oilfields to ISIS jihadists on Saturday.

    Sinjar is the historical home of the Yazidis, a Kurdish-speaking minority that adheres to a pre-Islamic faith derived, in part, from Zoroastrianism. They have been targeted by the Sunni militants of ISIS, who believe they are devil worshippers.”

    What will the Iraq war conjure up in historical analysis in 100 years?

    Clearly Bush/Blair will be conjoined with Genghis Kahn and the Pantheon of villainy.

  • Fool

    Yezidis have been suffering ever since Blair & Bush went into Iraq. No one seems to pay attention.

    Blair is off to Cairo – presumably to help stitch Hamas up a second time.

    Meanwhile the Guardian ‘explains’ why Cameron doesn’t critise the bombing, shooting, and shelling of Gaza. He’s “hamstrung” they say. He needs the donations and votes of those who think its okay to kill hundreds of children.

    Never mind people dying their argument goes – a minor matter compared to Cameron’s re-election. But which party do they think the pro-murderers are going to switch their votes to?

    On the contrary Cameron is a believer. He buys all the Israeli propaganda. He and the Tories already have blood on their hands having voted e- masse for Iraq. What are nearly 11,000 more casualties on top on nearly 200,000 there? They don’t think they were wrong then and they don’t think what Israel is doing now is either.

    Same schtick here. Odd because the last time he turned up in Guangzhou he was slammed for the vapidity of his very expensive (£200K +) speech.

    25th (evening)
    Returns to host £50K ostentatious party to celebrate Cherie being 59 and 11 months old. Nearly.

    ” stored in an ice-cream freezer”

    In a world where innocents are cannon fodder for land-grabbing and finance, politics seems supercilious.

    Outrage over same seems impotent.

  • Gary

    1997 was the first election I was able to vote in. I voted for Blair, as he seemed fresh in comparison to a very tired and sneeze ridden Tory Government. But I must now note, that this decision has shaken my faith in democracy ever since. I am not advocating a dictatorship either, but the idea that somebody can become so rich after behaving so deceitfully will sadden me for the rest of my life.

  • Peacewisher

    200000? Hey Je, which storybook are you reading from, Habby News? It was already a million several years ago.

  • Peacewisher

    @Gary: The worst thing about Blair was that he set a standard for bad behaviour that managers up and down the land proceeded to copy. And a downward spiral is difficult to pull out of…

  • Peacewisher

    Well, that just goes to show how initially worthy organisations can be leant on to massage statistics. We discussed the matter of deaths in Iraq awhile ago. You believe this figure if you like…

  • je

    CanSpeccy – It would be far better if people got involved in politics. MP’s are chosen by small groups of party members. People need to get involved in that process. Leaving the Zionists/millionairres to have a free hand and stick in whoever promotes their agenda is not the answer.

  • je

    Peacewisher – however many have been killed is however many have been killed. Nobody knows the accurate figure. What numbers we put on the tragedy is a really minor matter compared to the enormity of the tragedy itself.

    But I’ve read the reports on the site and you’re insulting a dedicated group of people who deserve enormous credit for their work over the past 11 years.
