Even Blair helps Farage, the lucky general

Tony Blair meets last week with the committed democrats and
socialist comrades of the House of Saud
There are few people less popular in the UK than the former Prime Minister Tony Blair. He is to my own recollection the only person I refused to go to a meeting with a couple of years ago, as I could not trust myself to lose it with the man who so betrayed and ruined our Country during his ten years as Prime Minister.

His post-premiership period has been a sordid money grab from the rich and powerful and his esteem is highest these days with those whose love of democracy and markets is lowest. For someone who governed in name of Keir Hardie and Eric Barnes, its hypocrisy of the first order.

Luckily, the UK populace is not as stupid and venal as he has proved to be and Blair is universally disliked both on the left and right.

So when he steps into make a comment on UKIP success in the recent elections and hangs his arguments on the same tired lines of them be 'nasty and unpleasant' and 'wanting the world to stop and let me get off' then he can only be bolstering their support.

Nigel Farage, he really is a lucky politician. I note too in life the success of lucky people - as Napoleon said "I want lucky generals, not good ones." it is a good sign for UKIP that the establishment politicians still are fighting the wrong war against him, luck is needed for UKIP to progress further a party.

To be honest, I don't think Tony Blair ever really wanted to be a politician. He just wanted to be top dog in Britain and be able to boss pretty much everyone else about.

He also wanted to be a top man in the establishment, and be as near a hereditary lord as possible, oh and really rich.

To date the hunting, shooting & fishing establishment hate him with a virulence that has to be seen to be believed, the Left revile him as a traitor and the right can't stand him. The royals virtually have him on a shoot on sight list, and his wife recently was criticised by a senior judge in his summing up of one of her cases, the verdict of which he'd just reversed. Said senior judge noted that Cherie had been deceived by an overly-glib defence council.

In legal terms, this is sticking the knife in and twisting it; the legal profession live and die by their intelligence, wit and cunning. Denouncing another judge as being too thick to do their job (which was what this amounted to) is the ultimate insult, and furthermore introduces a note of patronage into her appointment.

History remembers Tony as that twerp who got Britain into an unjust and useless war, but who otherwise did nothing of note.

All in all, the useless little oik has got his comeuppance!

Yet he keeps popping up all over the place as in the Today programme this morning blathering on about something or other and ducking (as usual) a response to the last question which was about a delay to the Chilcott enquiry. (As usual it's not his fault apparently).

Are we still paying for protection for this odious creature and if so why when he is well able to pay for it himself?

I keep hoping if we ignored him ie stop giving him air-time he might just slip away.

He is lucky.
Not sure he is a good general though. And napoleon liked to have both in his leaders though he often had neither.

I agree Dan, good post.

Whilst we might want to throw our collective invective at the horrible little man that gave us the Reign of Terror circa 1997-2010, I think history will judge that they were once again another couple that sought power and were intent on inflicting their moralistic view on others that had no bearing nor relevance to us in the real world.

UKIP provided the focus that there were many, especially those that were disenfranchised with the 24/7 propaganda from the MSM, that woke up, and suddenly had something other than the banal 3 colour party shirts for the same bollocks ad infinitum that we were voting for.

Whilst not getting into the minutiae of unpublished manifesto, which of course all parties adhere to (cough), this is definitely a protest vote on the political system. No longer do we have left/right, red/blue, orcs/humans, rebel/empire... we have a self-invested elite that are career driven, not populous driven, and thanks to the Age of Information, this is being slowly exposed, especially the mechanism of the Fourth Estate - the MSM.

It may not be 2015 that the Elite feel the impact, but maybe later, but there's certainly an odour of revolt in the air, and by god and Harry, is this refreshing.

Vote UKIP!

The Mick Jagger of international relations is what I fancy he fancied. Which is why he handed over the country to the Mentalist, and proceeded to ponce about the globe bombing innocent people to buggery and back.

Blair visited Croydon as an "unpopular" PM in 2006, addressed a none-too-well-disposed audience in a packed Council chamber

he charmed the birds out of the trees

he'd figured out the charm thing decades ago, and thought - what can't I do ? why not ?

Nigel Farage is not lucky.

He's had to put up with a continuous barrage of assaults with few friends on his side.

It's all down to his common sense, honesty and resilience - also his rejection of spin. He shows what utter cnuts the other politicians are - and they still aren't getting it.

You can't trust them.

Yup. Some 15 year old took 6-24 against us, bowling straight up and down slow medium tosh with the odd full toss thrown in, the other week. Not his first 5-fer either.

Last week we played on a park pitch that was basically mud. I batted 20-odd overs for 18 runs and we were all out for 60. No-one could time any full length delivery all day ...

...until this jammy sod comes in for them at about 20/4 and smacks 38 not out in about 15 deliveries, lofting it all over the place and missing the fielders every time. He top scored for them most weeks.

I've recently come to the conclusion that cricket is as much about luck as anything else. Maybe politics is too
