in 2011. Arch vampire and actor supreme* Blair, the destroyer of the UK with his decade or more of damage - continued by the Brownstuff - that was New Labour, is castigated but unpunished. Decried but not even a slapped wrist in the offing. A non apology and with the gall to say - with the evidence of the gross failure now spread worldwide [11th anniversary today] - he would do it all again.
Funnily enough back then it was hardly reported, I wrote: "A reader contributes... If you can't understand the title it means that at last Blair is being outed over the Iraq War lies and the intentional misleading of parliament. The smoking gun is in view, the evidence is now before the Chilcott Inquiry: big news but not particularly interesting to the MSM apparently because hardly anyone seems to be giving 'sufficient' coverage or column inches that the former Attorney General Lord Goldsmith's evidence deserves. I guess these days any day is "a good day to bury bad news".
One who did report it [Stephen Glover that day's Daily Mail] ""At last, the damning evidence that should bury Blair for his lies over Iraq". Unfortunately, Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O’Donnell has banned the Inquiry from releasing records of secret talks between Tony Blair and President George W. Bush... Apart from the seeming lack of interest in giving Blair his comeuppance I also note that nobody seems to be mentioning Gordon Brown either; cunts. It is as though he has been airbrushed from history and all the problems the UK faces are now the evil Coalition's fault."
Yes, as usual BBC were being very coy because back then they were still in crush-Coalition mode; the lack of coverage was overshadowed by what became a non-story; two days after the Blair news I wrote about the Guardian and BBC 'overreaction' to the Coulson hacking 'scandal' and how "Incredibly, on their UK News page there are 5 MORE articles (only the main story is as per the Home News page)...and note how the Blair news (and everything else!) is demoted... ...and somewhat appropriate following Peter Sisson's comments: "In the later stages of my career, I lost count of the number of times I asked a producer for a brief on a story, only to be handed a copy of The Guardian and told 'it's all in there'". Of course very different today...ahem.
The image above is cut from The National newspaper reproduced on the BBC: HERE. 'Shamed', 'Damned', 'defiant to the end', a 'monster' and a 'weapon of mass deception' among the other headlines (Scottish newspapers).
* just a reminder to those who may think yesterday's performance was genuine; well, the performance was genuine as befitting one of such lying talent, the emotions shown were not.
