B IS FOR BLAIR; WHAT IS W FOR?

OH YESSSSSSSSSSSSS, PLEASE!
And we know what that feels like, don't we?
And you shall be known by the company you keep.
W is for....

When Blair had yet another go at Corbyn this week, you had to wonder what he thought he was likely to achieve, apart from it being noticeable, as the first illustration points out, that he has criticised Corbyn far more than he has criticised Cameron, Osborne or IDS.

There are undoubtedly still a few Blair fans left in the Labour Party hierarchy in London; Liz Kendall seems to be their cheerleader. But surely most people dislike and distrust the ex prime minister who won't open the fridge without demanding a 5 figure sum, and who works for some of the world's most unlikeable heads of government, because they pay big bucks for advice from him on how to be a bastard and get away with it.

I'd have thought that anyone who was prepared to listen to a word Blair says wouldn't be even considering voting for Corbyn, and likewise anyone who would consider voting for Corbyn would probably rather chew their own foot off than take advice from the butcher of Baghdad.

He's a bright man. Politically savvy. Why doesn't he just have to good sense to shut his mouth and go make some more money somewhere? Anywhere...just keep his head down until it's over.

Doesn't he know he's no longer just not an asset to the Labour Party; he's a massive liability?

Just out of interest, someone noticed and pointed out on Twitter that he has, among his wrinkles, a distinctive "W" on his forehead.

I wonder what that stands for.

    as opposed to? Somehow I think you meant FOOT. I put it down to the sheer terror of having to look at Bliar photos, enough to make anyone word substitute ;-)

    1. Ah PP what would I do without your proof reading skills?

      Munguin sends his thanks and says that a Czec will be in the post, or was it a |Pole... oh well...

      It was traumatic, having to look at pictures of so much evil all at once.

  2. Saw a wee clip on BBC of drowned refugees. If the BBC had shown un-sanitised actual film of the carnage inflicted on Iraq and it's inhabitants then the British public would be so horrified that this smug and evil bastard would be arrested and charged.

    1. I keep on seeing pics of kids washed up on beaches of Libya, John. It's just heartbreaking.

      I agree, the BBC, and other broadcasters sanitise war for us, so all we see is the pretty bits of it. If we saw children screaming in agony with their legs blown off, or when they realise that their parents and siblings have been wiped out, then we'd march en masse on this piece of shit and take him personally to The Hague.

    2. The British TV companies never show images that are disturbing. They come out with sanctimonious pish about not wanting to upset viewers.
      If the results of British bombs on innocent civilians were regularly shown, there would be uproar. Footage of heads, feet and various organs of children, splattered over buildings, might actually wake folk up to what is being done in our name.
      Bastards.

    3. I know it would be upsetting for some people, but it really is time we had a bit more of an idea what our tax money (from hard working tax payers up and down the country, remember) is paying for.

      If it's blowing off kiddies' legs or heads, or bombing their apartment blocks, then so be it. We need to be aware of it. We are allowing it; we're bloody funding it. It's being done in our name, and that of our queen.

      I saw some pictures the other day of children being washed up on beaches in Libya. It was hard to see. It's burned into my memory now. It won't go away... But at least I've experienced, second hand, what is happening.

      No matter now how many people tell me that it will reduce our standard of living, I repeat I'd gladly take in a family to live in my little flat if it could save them that fate.

  3. It's not a distinctive "w" but two "y's" . They stand for YO YO.

    1. LOL. As in "Yo Blair".

      Maybe I just jumped to the W conclusion because it went with war criminal, weirdo and wanker.

    2. Warmongering Wanker would be my accolade.

  4. Zombies in Series 5 of the Walking Dead started appearing with W on their foreheads too. Just saying.

    1. He looks a bit like a Zombie these days.

      Don;t know whether its the drink or something else, but it's almost impossible to recognise the same man that won the election less than 20 years ago.

      I wonder if being a zombie pays enough money for Blair to get out of bed for...

    2. I think you'll find that when one sells one's Soul there tend to be unfortunate consequences - mind you that's never stopped them queueing up so to do!

    3. I wonder what a "person" like Blair would get for his soul. Not worth much I'd have thought.

  5. Blair is a moral vacuum, probably a psychopath.

    It's the same condition that makes him think he can still speak with authority that also makes him forever unable to realise he's deeply unpopular so should shut his gub. Brown suffers from it, others too, like the death inducing bore known as Ming Campbell etc - you know the type.

    Their massive ego and self-regard leaves them entirely unable to see themselves as others see them.

    1. Precisely.

      It's like they never read the papers or blogs and only ever are allowed to hear nice things about themselves.

      I'm sure there are people who want to hear what they have to say, but very honestly, I've never met one.

      A neighbour and friend of mine is a staunch Labour supporter, but it would be seriously dangerous to allow him into the same room with Blair or Brown or Straw. Blood would fly.
      And wouldn't that be a pity.

      As for Ming.... Yawn... Goodnight.

  6. Could it be George Bush's middle initial?
    Did he brand all his lackies?

  7. Warmonger, (ideological) whore, wanker, waste of space, wanton opportunist, wrecker of lives, wizard of spin (see pish talker), wholesale seller of lies and beliefs, wan big pile of dog shit.

    I really can't stand the murdering bastard.

    1. Erm... yeah. I think we got that impression.

      And basically, of course I'm wondering how many people can, and, as I say, what kind of influence his advice is likely to have.

    2. He's probably playing some kind of, twisted logic, long game; turning Labour in to a true right wing party.
      If Corbyn wins as leader, and the party is then humped at the next GE, he and his acolytes can turn on the left with all the self-righteous zeal they can muster.
      I hope he is wrong though, Corbyn wins leads Labour to victory in England and sends Blair to the Hague.

    3. Well, it's a dream. I don't suppose it will happen, although I have to be honest I can't see Corbyn not winning the leadership (unless some dark arts are being practised with the counting).

      Winning an election? Possible.

      But pressure will be brought to ensure that the likes of Blair is safe from prosecution till after his death. Otherwise he might take the other DubYa with him.

    1. Dunno Chic, but I bet Blair is not any longer welcomed in the Vatican under the new bossman.
