Of course I'm not suggesting that Blair is sexually perverse (sexually incontinent, possibly, but that's a matter for Mrs Blair) but rather that he's spent his time doing the most dreadful things in plain sight. In ten or fifteen years, will people react in astonishment that he could use an office appointed by the Middle East peace quartet to amass a fortune at the expense of human lives, freedom and the rule of law? Just as we cannot credit Savile being given the keys to Broadmoor, will some future investigator ask "And you allowed Blair to use his status as ME peace envoy to funnel $25m into his bank from the dictator of Kazakhstan, a man who boiled his enemies alive in butter?"
Both seem to share a sort of snake-like hypnotic ability that blinds all around them to their wrongdoing, combined with the sort of psychopathic amorality the disguises itself with a smile of virtue. Both are vain and narcissistic to the extent that they believe normal rules don't apply to them. Both have the most tremendous chutzpah.
