Interviewed on Sky News - apparently the people have spoken..... But we don't necessarily have to listen.

I hate that man.

With a passion.

I agree and don't trust him.

angry

He wants to be involved in the Brexit negotiations as well...

MangoMoon Sun 03-Jul-16 14:20:15

God help us all.

I thought he'd ducked off to the US?

Probably just wishful thinking.

Can we deport him? wink

gingerboy1912 Sun 03-Jul-16 14:22:31

He is a c## t. I detest him.

eddiemairswife Sun 03-Jul-16 14:35:02

I muted him on Sky news, but I had to switch off the radio during the 1 o'clock news.

LittleBearPad Sun 03-Jul-16 22:58:45

I think he's trying to unite the nation in our utter loathing of him.

Spinflight Sun 03-Jul-16 22:59:42

He is remarkably effective at that...

I voted for him in 1997, my first Gen Election. I was completely taken in by his style snd charisma, and the whole Cool Britannia thing. What a mug I was.

lazysummer Sun 03-Jul-16 23:47:13

Sorry, but I agree with him.

Dozer Sun 03-Jul-16 23:54:16

Surely he should STFU now that the Chilcott report is going to come out?

GraceGrape Sun 03-Jul-16 23:58:41

Hmm, I haven't agreed with anything he's said since about 1998, but on this, I think he's right.

He should keep his head down and keep his mouth shut. He's done quite enough damage already. What's the matter with people like him?
Have they got no shame?
.......hide of a bloody rhinoceros ...

I'm a never vote labour again because of Iraq person.
But I heard him on r 4 this lunchtime and he made total sense, I have to say. If only now we had a political leader in power (of any party) who could communicate what needs to be done so simply and clearly.
Yes yes I get its all prob about chilcott, but still....

MangoMoon Mon 04-Jul-16 00:39:50

I respect all of your opinions, obviously.......


.... But I still fucking hate him!!! grin

Ah the Tony Blair hate in.

Funny how once we were in Iraq he won an election, with a far bigger majority than this government. Funny that the opposition also backed the Iraq war at the time. Look up Theresa May's voting, or what Boris voted.

Funny that the vast majority of people backed going to war at the time.

I was an activist for the Stop the War Coalition, I worked bloody hard to oppose it but we were very much a minority, a large and vocal one, but most people disagreed with us.

Its become fashionable to hate Blair, Iraq aside I think he did some very good things for the country, but I can't forgive him for Iraq.

There is a very, very revisionist view of history going on where Blair took us to war with no ones backing. It isn't true.

Oh and if you say:" He lied" well, that information was basically out there, there were lots of sources about Iraq's WMD capability. I wonder if many of you will be as revisionist about brexit when it all goes tits up.

Chris1234567890 Mon 04-Jul-16 02:23:15

smallfox.. When the question of war goes to parliament, its generally accepted that MPs vote with the sitting government. The reason being, the vast majority of the House, and certainly the opposition, are not privvy to diplomatic negotiations, secret intelligence, Armed forces briefings etc. So in light of that, sitting governments will always be supported.
There are always a few who vote against, as concientious objectors as it were, but if you were to ask MPs for a decision based on all available facts and intelligence, it would take a year or two to make the decision.

Its then a very very very very bad thing to mislead the House..............

Thought you may appreciate why Chilcot is more important than you appreciate.

Chris1234567890 Mon 04-Jul-16 02:27:50

Actually....edit to my last post......first line, take out the 'generally'. It IS accepted that MPs vote with the government.

A very very very very very bad thing youve done Mr Blair.

Spinflight Mon 04-Jul-16 02:31:45

Chris is entirely correct.

A vote against a war should be seen as a conscientious objection rather than opposition to the war itself.

Clearly this means that the government should not put a vote before the house unless the cassus beli is clear, even if they cannot justify it through non classified sources.

Piemernator Mon 04-Jul-16 04:13:03

I started voting Libdem due to Blair taking us to Iraq.

Dozer Mon 04-Jul-16 07:50:24

It's not "revisionist" or absolving others of responsibility to dislike Blair as a key "actor" in the decision to go to war and condemn his actions, especially the "dossier", argument , Dr Kelly etc.

TheNaze73 Mon 04-Jul-16 07:54:38

Here are a list of all the good things he did.

Exactly.

brodchengretchen Mon 04-Jul-16 08:10:19

IMO the Blair entity is a self-serving operator of smoke and mirrors. The Chilcot Report published on 7th July will, I expect, paint a picture of a liar in thrall to the Bush Jr regime. 'Let's go to war and think of a reason later".

Blair has spent the intervening years coating himself with more teflon than a frying pan factory, but is he unimpeachable? In the interest of justice I very much hope not. We should not harbour war criminals.

LineyReborn Mon 04-Jul-16 08:17:16

I am assuming Corbyn is hanging on like he is in order to be the Labour Leader who calls for Blair's impeachment later this week.

Grassgreendashhabi Mon 04-Jul-16 08:20:01

Omg I can't stand him.

He was terrible. I don't watch anything anymore on him as I don't want him to have ratings and thinking people still like me

He is the worlds biggest twat
