Blair, heir to Dönitz

Karl Dönitz was the Third Reich's last President, occupying the position of the Nazi empire's Head of State for just three weeks following Hitler's suicide. As he waited in his Flensburg headquarters for the final collapse he must have looked back on the days of pomp and braggadocio, the brave banners and bold anthems, with all Europe under one government. Economically, of course, the Third Reich was a Ponzi scheme; even in 1941 the top rate of Income Tax in Germany was 13.5%, compared to 23.7% in the UK. 


Against all reason and sanity, Blair's support of the UK joining the Euro is quite transparently not what it seems. He still harbours hungry ambitions to be Europe's President, and his declaration is intended more for consumption in Paris and Berlin rather than in London. I'll even bet Cherie has her eyes on the Egmont Palace in Brussels, presently used by the Belgian foreign ministry, as a suitable home for the new President and First Lady of Europe. 


In the chaos and collapse that the EU now faces, who knows but that he may achieve his ambition before the final curtain falls on the Fourth Reich. Dönitz penned a book entitled 'Ten years and Twenty Days', referring to the years of Nazi power and the length of his Presidency of the Reich. It strikes me that only the second part of the title would need changing for a post-EU Blair memoir; would he do any better than Dönitz' three weeks?

Invent a sub standard product with known dangerous deficiencies, market it and sell it all over EUrope and when the thing goes bang, you are likely to end up in jail (an easy one probably in the enlightened EUrope..but jail none the less)

Do the same thing with a currency system that at best resemlbes dantes inferno and its six figure pensions and junkets all round.

Its about time collars were felt.

Misconduct In Public Office might be the place to start. Bembridge (1783) 3 Doug KB 32 at paragraph 57 that “those who hold public office carry out their duties for the benefit of the public as a whole and, if they abuse their office, there is a breach of the public's trust”

I support Tony Blair's ambition to be the new Czar of the EU. Even if he does just half the damage he has done to the UK, it will bring the EU down.

He's not doing very much as the Middle East 'envoy' though, so perhaps, he's biding his time...

Goes with the wind that one, totally unbelieveable.

That's a terribly cynical view to take of probably our greatest prime mincer, and his beautiful wife!
