Click to Buy Tony Blair’s ‘A Journey’
As the press compete to decide which is the biggest stick with which to beat Tony Blair into the pulp he clearly deserves to become –
(the “animal”, the “indiscrete”, the “warmonger” over Iran, the “revenge seeker” , the nasty, twisted GW Bush lover – the SEX thing) –
and as his memoir seems to be about to break all records – this country’s most influential statesman goes about his business: being influential and statesmanlike.
Irritating, isn’t it, littlies?
Addendum, sort of, in the middle – John Rentoul has this regarding Chris Mullins. WHO? Chris Mullins, the former Labour MP whose “View from Somewhere not quite near the Centre of Politics“, the sainted BBC decided was their Book of The Week last week. Amazing! The world is queuing up to place Blair’s A Journey top of the best-selling political books ever and the Beeb in their omniscience are serialising “A View From the Outer Edges”. How many more times can they get it all so, so wrong?

“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.”
