The train rag today had a bit of a naughty headline: “Blair brought to book,” and the play on words was pretty obvious. For them to run that and for Blair to go through all that security for his book launch, with more henchmen than Al Capone, it must be fairly obvious that a sizeable proportion of the population are not enamoured of the cad and would indeed like to see him brought to book.
There were some good comments here, on both sides, about Dr. Kelly, with the general conclusion being that it needs an independent inquiry. I commented:
The problem is in getting an independent inquiry. They pretended to do that with Di and it was anything but so they had to do it all again. And then again. People then tired of it. Yet no independent inquiry was ever held. I fear this happening here because certain players, e.g. Blair and Mandelson, stand to lose a hell of a lot.
To any English or other Brits reading this, I’m just stating the bleedin’ obvious. Perhaps the blood money for the troops is the last cynical straw for the public and calls will now come for at least Blair to be “brought to book”. This is very much an issue of the people v the politicians and who will the MSM side with? If you say that that’s bleedin’ obvious too, I’m not so sure. The train rag was certainly skirting around the idea today.
