Blair is having a time of it. Following on from a little unwanted attention by the police it turns out the one person in the world that he wants to be noticed by doesn't really care:
Tony Blair has failed to influence the policies of George Bush's White House in any significant way, despite his unwavering support for the US president, a leading foreign affairs think tank said today. Delivering its verdict on ten years of foreign policy under Mr Blair, a Chatham House briefing paper said his legacy would be defined by the "terrible mistake" of the war with Iraq
But surely our unflinching support, shoulder to shoulder of whatever Bush wants to do must have had some positive results. Maybe a quick reacharound?
"Tony Blair has learnt the hard way that loyalty in international politics counts for very little... The bilateral relationship with the United States may be 'special' to Britain, but the US has never described it as more than 'close',"
Those bastards, taking a little sensitive guy with so much to offer and filling his head with promises only to take what they wanted and then toss him aside like a piece of used toilet tissue. Poor Tony.
But we'll show them. Just wait until we get ourselves some shiny new Trident missiles. We do count! We do!
