(B)anal Banter with Blair & Blunt

Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 09.16.43

It is well known that Tony Blair has friends in high places and that, legally speaking, he knows how to get away with anything.

Teflon Tony

He is known as Teflon Tony because, although bad things are said about him, nothing ever sticks.

His greatest skill is his ability to use the legal system to do bad things — for which the rest of the world must pay the price.

True Cost

The Home Office recently refused to admit the cost of policing Blair despite the fact that it is paid out of public money.

But the authorities have been convinced that the true details of David Kelly’s death should remain secret.

Today Blair will make a press statement following the Chilcot Report. It is highly unlikely that he will act honourably and accept culpability.

Instead he will blame others or beg for sympathy.

There have been at least five known attempts to Arrest Blair

When he spoke at the Libya Inquiry in Parliament, in December, security was high but justice was not delivered.

Come to Popper

Perhaps on the day of Blair’s long-awaited December 11th appearance in Parliament, the chair of the Defence Select Committee, Crispin Blunt, was more concerned with his own views on the then looming Psychoactive Substances Bill, and in particular the statement he was to dramatically made the House in January 2016, in which he outed himself as a parliamentarian with a penchant for soon-to-be-illegal poppers.

The Independent’s Tom Peck wrote a good piece on January’s poppers ban and the pleasures of anal sex with the current chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee, Keith Vaz.

If Blunt took more of a stand over things like Brexit, and the bombing of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya — the matter of something as straightforward as poppers might have been far more easily resolved.

Letwin & Brexit

Yesterday Blunt’s Select Committee hosted Oliver Letwin on the subject of Brexit negotiations.

These are interesting times in which the likes of Blunt are supposed to save us from the worst excesses of the Letwins and the Blairs.

We’ll need far more than amyl-nitrate if we’re to stand any chance of surviving.

Disgraced Brexit Cheerleader for PM?

If the UK votes for Brexit, Dr Liam Fox, the disgraced ex-Defence Minister responsible for getting the UK involved in conflict in Libya and Syria before being sacked for Cronyism in 2011, could become Prime Minister.

Is this really happening?

Fox & NHS

Tory Leavers now openly refer to Brexit as being our best chance of saving the NHS from privatisation.

But research has shown that most of them have big money invested in private healthcare firms.

Fox is a well known Thatcherite along with his colleagues John Redwood, John Whittingdale, and Oliver ‘Privatising the World’ Letwin.

Brexit & TTIP

TTIP is bad for the NHS as it is designed to open it up to US Health Insurance firms.

And the European Central Bank (ECB) and the European Commission are heavily captured by the City of London Corporation. Liam Fox is right to say that it doesn’t look as though they will change path.

But it would be very dangerous to put the Brexit camp in charge of the country.

The fact that Fox thinks the City of London Corporation and the EU are not Neo-Liberal enough is a fair sign of what he has planned for the NHS.

Attempting to reform the undemocratic EU from within will be hard – but much easier than negotiating with Fox.

Cost of Protecting Tony Blair is a State Secret

Why should we continue to pay to protect Tony Blair from the vengeance of those he has wronged?

In a recent response to a Freedom of Information Request the Home Office have refused to confirm or deny that they spend a single penny of their budget on protecting Tony Blair.

This is on the grounds that publishing the real numbers would jeopardise national security.

The fact that they publish the figures for policing Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy goes to show that there is one standard for those who believe in transparency and another for Tony Blair.

I suspect that the entire Royal Family costs less and pays more tax:

Than Tony Blair:
