Bliar losing his grip

#1
He didn't fly back a la Superman (or even not go in the first place) as the tsunami struck. He was incommunicado with his beloved media for 4 days on the subject while his mortal enemy (G. Brown) was launching all sorts of world-saving plans. Now, like a huffy teenager in a fit of pique, he holds a press conference at the same time as his hated "sister" (G. Brown) to try and hog back the limelight, expecting this to generate no comment. Brown has spent the last week acting the statesman far more convincingly than Bliar and has been asked by over 100 MPs to turn up in their constituencies come election time, a request that I doubt will be extended to Bliar.

He'll be gone by May and quickly forgotten, except when he tries to snatch at the limelight in the manner of an embarrasing Z-list celebrity.

Ahh, a world without those cringe-inducing moments like the repeated photo-op I saw on the news today where Bliar poses for the camera with his arms around the shoulders of two schoolkids, looking like Gary Glitter in Thailand in his exploitativeness.

Loosing? Loosing his grip you say?? I'm sure he lost grip with reality a long time ago.

What makes me giggle is the speach he done and the speach brown done were vitually the same. Is this meant to bring the public back on his side??

Me thinks some school boy has been copying his neighbour!!

Grade F!

As soon as he calls a General Election.... he's out of there. He'll either do so badly that his party will topple him, or the country will vote for anyone but hiis party of lieing, do as I say not as I do wasters. But if you want I'll get off the fence.

Somewhere between Bob Hope and No hope. I hope.

Unfortunately, he'll lead "New" Labour to victory in May. The other parties aren't really in any position to to anything other than oppose hopelessly.

After that, however, all bets are off. He's already said that he doesn't want to take the party into a fourth election.That means that there will be a period of internicine warfare within the party, Blairites and Brownites to the fore. Our Tone probably thinks that he has enough "friends" to ensure that his vision stays on track. I can't see him taking a seat on the back benches (or upstairs) without trying to keep some of his fingers in at least a small number of pies.

After all, he has his "legacy" to think about.

Col. Tim Collins. Apart from him, I'd sooner see an Orang-Utan as our pm than any Socialist scum.

At the rate that life is becoming easier and more profitable for more and more idle scumbags under New Labour, more scumbags than ever will join the Islington faithful (scumbags of a different cloth) and vote Bliar back into power. A coalition of the stupid, idle and selfish.

The opposition will prevaricate, not wanting to offend anyone when they should be going for the throat of this self serving morally bankrupt shower of sh1t and addressing all that ails this country. But they don’t want to be accused of elitism or racism and they fear the influence and power of the left press. So we’ll get another term of Bliar (or his like).

And the rot will continue. (I hope I am wrong.)

Today's Scotsman led on various aspects of the "Blair losing his grip" theme.

"Blair and Brown on collision course as PM bids to regain initiative", etc. This analysis by Fraser Nelson:

Polished performer's missed chance on the world stage.

TONY Blair’s years in Downing Street have been marked by an extraordinary ability to judge the public mood, and deliver a fitting and eloquent response for any catastrophe.

Academics study the Prime Minister’s "grief speaking" style: long pauses mid-sentence, eyes darting about as if searching for the right word, while all the time reciting a memorised speech. It is an act performed to perfection.

This makes it all the more staggering that he has failed to capitalise on the tsunami disaster - and let slip a golden opportunity for Britain to atone for the Iraq war in the eyes of the Muslim world. Something is up.

What a world in which a human catastrophe becomes a 'missed chance' for a politician, but there it is.

P-uuuckk puuck puuck puck puck puck! (chicken noise)

From BBC website:

No election TV debate, says Blair

Mr Blair has ruled out a debate with Mr Howard in the run up to the election
Tony Blair has said he will not take part in a TV debate with his political rivals ahead of the next election.
"We answer this every election campaign and, for the reasons I have given before, the answer is no," he said at his monthly news conference.

In October Tory leader Michael Howard said Mr Blair would be running scared if he refused calls to go head-to-head.

In recent years the leader of the opposition has always called for a debate, although it has never happened.

Before the 2001 election, plans for a debate between Mr Blair, William Hague and Charles Kennedy collapsed.

In 1997 a debate between Mr Blair and John Major was also cancelled when a format could not be agreed.

Televised debates have become the high point of the US presidential election campaigns.

Maybe Bliar could borrow Dubya's earpiece for any TV debate! I'd love to attach the other end of the wire to one of those old crank-handle field telephones and turn it at the right moment! :twisted: :twisted:

Trouble is we still have those fruitcakes from UKIP who will take votes from the Tories (who realistically are the only party who can win). Think how many seats they lost last time when the 'Referendum Party' split the right wing vote.

True...But in doing so they forced the tories to take on some of their more sensible ideas.

Its NOT a Right wing vote to vote Tory.............................it is a vote to bring back common sense and to re-elect a Party of the Middle way/Centre Ground.

That said if they do not include a EU referendum in their manifesto the only reason I would vote for them is tactically.

I think Howard and Kennedy should go ahead with a debate, with an empty third chair. Who knows, perhaps Gordon Brown might even turn up! :twisted:
