DEATH THREAT LATER
GENUINE [DEATH] BELIEF FIRST
Confession time. I’m not always the most numbingly flattering of people. I have a sometime impolitic tendency to say what I think. On the other hand I DO give praise – high praise – where I believe it is deserved. Thus, dear reader, this blog. A blog in support of someone else, not espousing my own great qualities of omniscience.
Generally I don’t call people, even bankers, MPs & the press rude names [correction – some of the press]. Either as individuals or as a group I do not wish them dead, out of some simplistic, puerile view that I KNOW that I am right and they are wrong, evil etc.
[I do confess to having recently upset someone I probably shouldn’t have over something he said I probably misinterpreted. If he hadn’t blocked me for being unrepentant at the time, I’d tell him I’ve seen the error of my ways.]
However, I wouldn’t dream of wishing death on anyone. Even those few I take an immediate dislike to. After all we’re all human. More or less.
Twitter is a funny old place though.
On Friday night following the latest offering from The Comic Strip – yes that’s its name – ‘The Hunt For Tony Blair’ – on Channel 4, I responded to a Twitter tweet. This chap, tweeting Stephen Mangan, the show’s Tony Blair character, copied to that other comedian Armando Iannucci, had said –
I had the audacity to respond to him with this –
“He really isn’t… this is a self-serving characterisation of a world statesman.THE world statesman.”
ALL LOUDMOUTH IDIOTS MUST DIE
So there we have it truth-hunters. If this guy considers you “a loudmouth idiot” – thus “essentially a negative influence” – you, hopefully(!) won’t be long for this world.
The mind boggles as to how empty the world would be if we ALL thought like this.
I only write about this to let people know that there are people out there who wish an early death for those with whom they disagree.
We should know these people exist. They are a real problem. Frequently of the peace ‘n’ love anti-war sort – [I know, I know – priceless isn’t it?] – they often exude hatred from every pore when someone disagrees with them, even when supplied with indisputable facts. My observation that Tony Blair is “THE world statesman”, something inarguable to all but the most prejudiced, cuts no ice with His Omniscience.
We saw this blind bias on full display on The Hunt For Tony Blair. Not content that the Blair character is (in their well-rehearsed gotcha vision) shot “up the a*se” by the Gordon Brown character, we then see a kind of immediate re-incarnation of the reviled self-believing spirit turning over in the water into which he plunged, planning how to con his way past Saint Peter.
And just in case the hopeful assume he’s really dead “The Hunt” ends with “Tony Blair is still at large”.
You couldn’t make it up. Except that these people have and are applauded for it by the hate-filled ignorant. I am not taking this silly “Hunt” programme too seriously, believe me. It is part of the constant vitriol which over time seeps into the subconscious of the gullible.
For proof of that read this comment, also on Friday night –
You got that, didn’t you? –
“Just watched a documentary about tony blair and how he killed people”.
A “DOCUMENTARY”? This was 10:10pm Friday night just as ‘The Hunt for Tony Blair’ ended on Channel 4. It was no documentary. Yet this individual thought it was! To him it was about how Tony Blair “killed people”.
Chat down the pub tonight?
- Intellectual 1 – “Did you see what that bastard Blair did?”
- Intellectual 2 – “Yeah. First he killed John Smith the great leader of the Labour party, then he pinched his job and killed Robin Cook and all those people in Iraq.”
- Intellectual 1 – “And then the *ucker bumped off anyone else who got in his wicked way to Bush’s backside.”
- Intellectual 2 – “I reckon it’s his turn. You up for it?”
Almost forgot – the death threat
That was made a month or so ago on Twitter by someone who said this –
“If I was to ever see you, Bush or Blair I’d kill you without hesitation”
But no worries. Both Twitter and the Police told me so. Free speech an’ all that.
Sleep well. Live long.
1. Notts Politics – Hunting Down Tony Blair
Excerpt: “The New Labour government is the most dramatised in history and Tony Blair the most dramatised Prime Minister … But there also lazy reasons, including pandering to easy stereotypes and popular prejudices. Many members of the public, certainly those on the left, somehow ‘know’ that Blair was obsessed by spin, was in love with the powerful and lied to us about Iraq. But how do we acquire such ‘knowledge’? “
2. THIS – is a Review? The Hunt for Tony Blair – Counterfire
Excerpt: “This is a former British Prime Minister, being portrayed as a nihilistic, self-interested mass-killer on mainstream television. Tony Blair: the man who got away with murder. And everybody knows it.”
Everybody knows YOU know nothing, Mr Hold Your Fire.
3. Note the most highly recommended comment at this Telegraph review –
“Worst of all it’s a true story, he’s got away with millions, and the innocent are left with the cosequences[sic]. “
4. And take a look at this for what the “Hunt” actors really think about Tony Blair and the Iraq war. Then tell me it’s just a satire.

I am staggered by all the hate directed towards our former Prime Minister. I believe that Tony Blair made the Iraq decision in good faith and is most certainly NOT a war criminal. If anyone should be tried at the Hague it should be those in the media for totally misrepresenting the information and facts. The media are to blame for fuelling this hatred as it is purely driven by them. (UK)
