Blair-stench

Simon Jenkins is a must-read this morning for a piece on the Blair-stench around the UK's kidnapping and handing over of a Libyan dissident - an episode of which the permatanned coprolite says he has 'no recollection' - lawyer-speak for he's not saying.

"The war on terror is corrupting all it touches, while parliament meekly passes each twist of the ratchet of repression." Jenkins concludes, not even having to bother to add that Cameron's government is no better than Blair's in this respect.

Well sitting at our computers plotting to overthrow the rotten parliament, we are all terrorists.

I am not sure at my age whether I should be offended or flattered by this.

I'm not plotting anything, actually.

I am just increasing fed up with the whole thing: why can't these pox-doctors' clerks just F off and leave us alone?

I mean, it's not that much to ask is it?

I suppose they won't, and it will come down to plotting, in the end.

Too much money to be made out of us.

Nice try Greg.

But Tony Bliar claims to be a good Christian ..

is perhaps more accurate.

That he is a liar is self evident, and I am satisfied to say, I rumbled him right back in 1996.

I feel flattered, Robert. WY Sailor, somebody has to do it! Anon has it to a tee, we are too valuable a resource to screw money out of to leave us alone.

Hello Greg,

If you Google the traditionalist Roman Catholic magazine "Christian Order" and go to its editorial of Jun/July 2008,
you will find the most damning criticism of Tony Blair possible. The editor describes him as the "comic cuts cartoon convert from Hell"and has some similarly trenchant criticism for Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor.

I think you will be surprised how much you agree with!

Dear Mr Spalton, I don't know if Greg Tingey took up your reference to Catholic Order as I did and roamed round its editor's other utterings. As you say, they have much in common.
I envisaged them as warriors of intolerance battling the world in opposite directions but finding themselves fighting back to back against the rest of us. Then I began to wonder if the malicious poison dripping from the author's pen were not just a mite too vitriolic, that it was really extreme anti-Catholic propaganda.
Certainly, if the CO editor's religion was Christianity I would prefer almost any other "great" religion and if it were the only religion I would prefer Mr Tingey's atheism. Even the corrupting stench around Mr Blair and his like is preferable to such consuming hatred.
