Tony Blair (and ‘sons’) in Kosovo
What? you didn’t think I was finished with my “Not The BBC/ITN/Sky 6/9/10/11/midnight News” series, did you?
Don’t be silly.
Just found this video on YouTube. It’s in Albanian. I have translated as well as the internet was able. You’re most welcome.
It has behind it the “We Are The World” song, in English, which was sung at an event in Pristina at which Mr Blair appeared.
Original: ‘Tony Blair faleminderit shume per tere ate qe beri per Kosoven vendin tim.wmv’
Translation: ‘Tony Blair, thank you so much for all that you and your country did for Kosovo.wmv’
Original: ‘Tony Blair takohet me nëntë djemtë emrin e tij në Kosovë Kosova u shpall shtet i pavarur dhe sovran. Prishtinë, 17 shkurt – (Kosova Shtetet anëtare të Kombeve të Bashkuara që njohin Kosovën si shtet të pavarur ) Thank you United Kingdom.’
Translation: ‘Tony Blair meets with nine of his sons name in Kosovo, Kosovo was declared independent and sovereign state. Pristina, February 17 – (Kosovo United Nations Member States to recognize Kosovo as independent state) Thank you United Kingdom.’
TONY BLAIR’S ‘SONS’????
Er… not quite.
I have offered an altered translation suggestion to the site where I got this translation. There are enough nasty rumours abroad already, as it were.
I really don’t think the nine boys are HIS sons. They meant his namesakes. But there seems to be no direct translation into Albanian for “namesakes”. Look, I know he was busy out there, and some of the boys do look a little like him… but come on!
(Perhaps that’s why Cherie went along for the trip this time. Only joking. Honestly, Cherie.)
For any visiting Albanians – the heading at the top says –
Shqipëria, YouTube video: në sajë të Toni Bler dhe pjesës tjetër të Britanisë, për Kosovën
Now, what’s this note below all about? I’ll tell you in the next post.
- British press plays catch-up on the GOOD news on Blair (in Kosovo)
- Pictures: Tony Blair, the Hero, in Kosovo (thanks to DayLife for photos)
- Sky News: Pictures of Tony Blair and Tonibler x 9 in Kosovo (DayLife)
- Julie on “The Man who is said to be hated” I also linked to this article at my “Gary Younge Liar” post. Gary Younge’s dissembling can be read here. To silly little Gary – THIS video reminds those with eyes and/or ears what a BIG man looks like. It’ll also help to remind Newsweek as to just who exactly should be hated: the British press, in case you’re STILL wondering.

A recent comment from an Albanian, Mr Leonard Dedej from Tirana – “It takes big leaders to make the hardest turns in peoples life…mr Blair is a big leader and a great man for millions of people in Balkans!!!for stopping a savage war!about Iraq I believe that the press wherever it is has not the right to judge on this issue because it simply is to small to judge!!history will judge mr Blair!as long as it is an ongoing war no one can blame mr Blair,after all he started something for a big reason..the press its often wrong because it fights for audience!!!”
