Let’s hear it for Tom Harris MP, Ban Blair-Baiting petition signatory… & thanks too to Quentin Letts

    A recent comment: “He’s not a war criminal. He’s not evil. He didn’t lie. He didn’t sell out Britain or commit treason. He wasn’t Bush’s poodle. He hasn’t got blood on his hands. The anti-war nutters must not be allowed to damage Blair’s reputation further. He was a great PM, a great statesman and a great leader.”

      The Iraqi government’s Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, says he supports Blair on removing Saddam (video clip of Blair interview.)

      BAN BLAIR-BAITING PETITION

      Tony Blair with Tom Harris MP, the only MP thus far to sign the Ban Blair-Baiting petition (re Iraq Inquiry.) Worked out who your friends are yet, Tony?

      POINT OF CLARIFICATION –

      TOM HARRIS MP IS A SIGNATURE AT THE PETITION FOR A FAIR TRIAL … IRAQ INQUIRY HEARING FOR TONY BLAIR.   MR LETTS ISN’T.

      Got that? Good. Wouldn’t want you to confuse Mr Letts with anyone who supports the concept of justice for all, including Labour politicians, now would we? Perish the thought.

      Still, Quentin Letts has done the Ban Blair-Baiting petition a little favour and for that we should thank him. He gave it a mention at the Daily MAUL.

      But it really left Mr Harris feeling a touch miffed. Letts was driven to mention the petition only, perhaps, so he could get his little joke in about Lord Foulkes who has recently signed it too. See below for the little joke.) Ha-ha. Yes.  Quite.

      But why oh why didn’t he notice Tom Harris’s signature in his search for notables?

      ONLY ONE MP THINKS AN INQUIRY IS NOT A COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION (aka ‘SHOW TRIAL’) – and that ONE MP is Tom Harris.

      FAQs on the Iraq Inquiry

      THE “WE ALL KNOW” BRIGADE NEUTERED THIS INQUIRY FROM (LONG BEFORE) THE START

      Sir John Chilcot: “The Inquiry is not a court of law and nobody is on trial.”

      Well, you could have fooled ME, Sir John, AND the British press. Can’t work out why you’re bothering. “WE ALL KNOW” all about the legality or otherwise of the Iraq decision, “DON’T WE”?

      Clap ‘im in irons and get on with it!

      Mr Harris is the ONLY member of parliament to sign this petition SO FAR – (There is still time.) Tom signed  some time ago. He was clearly miffed that his name hadn’t been noticed by Letts when Lord Foulkes’ name had! He even complained about this omission to John Rentoul the other day.

      Tom Harris MP: “You would have thought he could at least have mentioned that I signed up before Foulkes did…”

      OK, Tom. Here you are.  I promised I’d mention you here, and like all Blair Supporters I’m true to my word.

      It’s a lonely life if you back Blair

      Business is not exactly brisk at a pro-Tony Blair internet petition.

      Called ‘Justice For Tony Blair’, it claims that Mr Blair is being ‘baited by the dogs of anti-war’ and argues that his opponents should desist from criticising him until he has appeared in front of the Iraq Inquiry.

      Lord Foulkes, the WC Fields lookalike and sometime Labour minister, added his name to the petition this week, but yesterday there were just 195 signatures, even though it has been open for business since the summer.

      The only other notable names on the list: John Burton (Mr Blair’s former constituency agent) and journalists John Rentoul (Independent on Sunday) and Oliver Kamm (a leader writer on The Times).
