    Click to Buy Tony Blair’s ‘A Journey’

    While our press were devouring “A Journey”, Tony Blair was the only European quietly nibbling around the “working dinner” table at Washington last night.

    OUR Man – still in the company of Presidents, Prime Ministers and Kings.

    Not that you’ll hear much about this in the British press.  That does not make it inconsequential. In fact its omission makes it VERY consequential, given that our press is often guilty of being strangers to the facts.

    Mr Blair was in attendance at the dinner last night at the White House as the Quartet’s Representative.  There are plenty of others who could have been invited along, in the region and outside.  It seems even George Mitchell was not present.

    Tony Blair is likely to be involved during the “low-key” talks too.

    But European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said a few days ago that she would not be attending, due, it seems to a prior commitment in China, and for this reason –  … and she said she had “no place there anyway“.

    Our man/woman in Europe still seems to be Mr Blair. And quite right too.

    Btw, anyone heard what the EU President Rompuy is up to recently?

    Perhaps it was made plain to the EU under its present leadership that they were not required. Surplus to requirement, or fears of their muddying waters?

    On the other hand, Mr Blair is clearly trusted by ALL sides in this ongoing “peace” negotiations.

    We should be proud of him, and I for one AM. Very proud of him.

    “Getting really bored with the persistence with which people pursue their anti-Blair propaganda, steadfastly refusing to see any good in the man.” – AND – “Tony Blair was the greatest Prime Minister since Winston Churchill and the only regret I have he didn’t get my vote as I live in Canada.”

      Hi

      I am also proud of him, but yes you are right the Media are unlikely to say anything about Blair being at the Peace talks.

      Sorry haven’t been on here for a long time, lots of things going on.

      I watched and recorded the “Tony Blair” interview by Andrew Marr last night, he was brilliant as always, it was good to see someone talking sense about things.
