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.”

    Three videos on the Blair visit.

    The main one, the discussion between Mr Blair and MEPs is very interesting. But since many of you will be desperate to see little David slaying the Giant before the latter had a chance to address the MEPs here is this one first (more information here.)

    Well?!? It did say “extracts”.

    I thought Goliath managed to speak reasonably well at the meeting afterwards, considering.

    He was clearly in pieces after Cronin’s bit of fun and games –

    MAIN MEETING

    In the margins of the Council, Foreign Affairs Ministers, gathered in Brussels, will discuss the Middle East Peace Process in the presence of International Quartet Envoy, Tony Blair.

    Q & A session with Mr Blair (Almost an hour of questions/answers)

    RECORDED EP Committee on Development
    Exchange of views with Tony BLAIR, Special Envoy for the Middle East Quartet and other representatives on “Palestine, Bridge Building and Development”

    You will notice that Mr Blair listens to some French speakers and then he responds in English. I’m not sure how many of our present UK or even EU parliamentarians would have that facility.

    Still the same old self-depracatory style – (much missed by many of us.)

    “Thank you for calling me an excellent diplomat. It’s better than a lot of things that I have been called.”

    Thursday? It must be China

    Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang met with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Thursday, hoping China and Britain could further boost cooperation and mutual trust.

    During his meeting with Blair, Li said China and Britain were both influential countries in the world and should take the opportunity to increase cooperation and mutual trust, which would benefit the two countries as well as the world.

    China would unswervingly follow the path of peaceful development and pursue a win-win strategy of opening-up, and actively participate in international cooperation on tackling the global financial crisis, climate change and health care, said Li.

    Li appreciated Blair’s efforts to “advance China-Britain relations,” and said he hoped the former British prime minister would continue to play an active role in promoting exchange and cooperation between China and western countries.
