In the name of God, just go ....
Can there be any politician so dangerously self-deluded, so critically lacking in judgement and so utterly impervious to the sheer awfulness of his record in office as Blair? I found it hard to believe that anyone outside of Broadmoor could have delivered the smug, pious and self-righteous little apologia that Blair gave to BBC1's Politics Show yesterday.
I don't think I've ever actually been embarrassed by a serving Prime Minister before. Blair is completely cringe-making. There are few people who actually believe he'll go when he says he will - when has he ever been truthful? - and opinion seems to be divided on whether he'll have to have his fingers prised from the door of Number Ten in 2010 or whether he'll go much earlier. The third alternative of course is waking up to 'Today' and the news that he's been arrested and is being held in custody .... as Camara said "When we dream alone it is only a dream. When we dream with others it is the beginning of reality".
For the record, my guess is he'll go on 31st March. There.
