Tony Blair is a real hero

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Princess Tony is in Sierra Leone being crowned a “paramount chief” by a local tribe.

Defending his taxpayer-funded farewell tour round the world, he said “Five years ago this country was being taken over by gangsters who were killing innocent people, raping women, despoiling the country.  But today we have a situation where in three months time we will have an election.”

Great.  They’re still killing innocent people, raping women and despoiling the country but at least they’re going to have the opportunity to elect an ineffectual leader rather than have one imposed on them.  Perhaps he thinks just visiting Sierra Leone will spread world peace to the region.  Gosh, he’s just like Jesus I think I might start a whole religion around the great bringer of peace.

Ah, too late.

“Tony Blair is a hero. He took a real risk. If the intervention had failed it could have been his downfall,” said journalist Augustus Kamara, who named his son – born a year after the British action – Tony Blair Kamara.

I think Mr Kamara needs to try and find his way into the real world for a bit.  A million people marched on London to protest against the Iraq war which has been a disaster since the day we invaded liberated Iraq but he ignored public opinion and did it anyway.  Was it his downfall?  No.  Over 1.8m people signed a petition against road pricing but he’s going to carry on anyway.  Was this his downfall?  No.  If military intervention in Sierra Leone wasn’t successful would anyone here bat an eyelid?  Don’t flatter yourself Mr Kamara, most people wouldn’t be able to point to Sierra Leone on a map let alone hinge Bliars career on the success of British troops there.

If I have another child I might name it after Tony Blair but I’m not sure.  Would it get picked on at school for being called Utter Miserable Abject Failure Dictator?
