One of Tony Blair’s most fervent supporters could hardly contain his enthusiasm at the prospect of the former Prime Minister becoming the first president of the European Union. “Imagine what it would be like,” he said. “Tony arriving at the UN in New York or negotiating with the Chinese in Beijing. Who else would stop the traffic like he would?”
So Britain's celebrity-mad ex-Prime Minister, war-criminal, liar and hypocrite, is likely to become the unelected head of a federation that no-one asked us if we wanted to be part of?
And he's not going to be dragged off to The Hague to answer for the deaths of 100,000+ Iraqis, 179 British soldiers, and David Kelly?
I despair. I really, really despair. If there is one reason to de-ratify the Lisbon Treaty, this is it.
