Sky news 14/03/07 at 12:45.

Colonel Tim Collins has stated on sky news today that:

"Tony Blair is lying when he says parts of Iraq are now safe enough to withdraw British troops-the violence is now worse than ever-The british army is so over stretched that it simply cannot cope. Tony Blair was told not to get involved in Afghanistan- senior military commanders warned him- yet he took no notice. Now the British Army is dying on it's feet and young men are paying with their blood- Tony Blair has to answer for this".

Very easy for him to come out with this as a retired man earning big bucks on after-dinner speeches.

Would he have stuck his neck out while still in?

Nice first post you absolute fool.

Hmmm after reading his book I'm surprised Tim Collins didn't try and take all the glory of parts of Iraq being safe!!

He has got a point though!!

He did

As far as trusting, believing and following the gentleman officer or the other person it is no contest.

One is a gallant, honest, proven leader and the other is a cowardly, dishonest, discredited, disbelieved, mountebank, cad and bounder.

When Collins was serving, he couldnt say anything to be fair. Now hes out and is somewhat a minor celebrity/ having been on tv media, and skynews reports, he can be honest and express his views.

Tony Blair will not suffer any repercussions because of Iraq. Tony Blair will, once hes gone from no 10, disappear from the media and retire from politics and go abroad perhaps to the USA..because of the God forsaken mess he has left this county in, that was once called Great Britain.

Look at the past PM, l John Major, never hear about him anymore.

Wheter Iraq was right/wrong thats one story...but Im more concerened about the total fcuk ups Blair has done here in the UK.

Apart from when his affair with Edwina Currie came about!!

Tim Collins says a lot of things about a lot which make a lot of sense!

Unlike that last sentence!

Tim Collins probably would have called TB a liar when he was serving it is just that no one was listening! Just look at all of us, we hate the b*stardand regularly call him a cnut but it never makes the papers!

The system shafted TC now its his turn to shaft TB!

The oh-so-sad fact is that the good Colonel (and I know him personally, and he is a very fine man) only gets rather few speechifying invitations, at modest fees, while Blair has seen to it that he has a lot of rich and influential luvvies waiting for his "retirement", to ensure a flood of high-paying invitations to speak internationally. The man (and his ghastly wife) are infatuated by the rich, and want to be two of them. He will make many millions from his memoirs, and millions more on the international celebs circuit - just as Slick Willy Clinton has, except Blair will make rather more.

The loathsome and devious little man has actually nothing of real importance to say, while TC has quite a lot. But this is the way of this wicked world . . . . At least his old comrades will have the benefit of his remarks when they get together - a far more wholesome kind of social gathering than any Blair is likely to grace with his dubious presence. "A period of silence from the Rt. Hon. gentleman would be welcome." :pissedoff:

How true Caubeen and there lies so much of our problem with Dear Leader and the Wicked Witch.
As PM he got massive Power and Influence, doors previously closed open for them.
Now when he becums an EX he reverts to being Nowt.
Well off by normal folks standards but a werry poor pair by the standards of the Super Rich on who's coats he wants to trail.
The Bush family will find him something, as they did for John Major, but Major was an accomplished player in internation business and did not have the Power complex of the Blurs.

Will he take a peerage ? for the WW will not acknowledge HM with a proper curtsy when in private. Mind you he was a Ban The Bomber until it suited him different.
Hate the B'stard.

Well said!

I think the little Rat will take a peerage, simply 'cos so many of his pals have them (from him, of course). I take great delight in the fact that - try as they may - the Blairs will never be among the Super-Rich (although they'll mingle with them, of course), and they will continue to be consumed with envy of them, of course.

In my optimistic moments, I sincerely hope that this Loans for Peerages business will turn up a really maggotty can of worms, and that Blair will be exposed and irredeemably tarnished as deeply corrupt - which I really suspect he is. We already know that he and Cherie have accepted something like 18 expensive watches as gifts from Berlusconi - how many watches do two people need, for heavens sake?! - so the principle of them accepting lavish gifts is already established.

The sooner the two of them leave No 10 the better. (And if Mr Brown fancies that the key of the door will be handed to him, he ought to think again. He wil not be PM - ever.)

I gather that various parties have approached Tim Collins to go into politics, and I sincerely hope he doesn't. He is simply not devious and weasel-wordy enough for a successful politician, and it was as a result of a run-in with some very politicised superior officers that he left the army in disgust.

Just look at the mess Mercer got himself into last week, thanks to a bit of straight speaking. Collins is by nature a far more direct and uncompromising man than Mercer, who will, I think, have a good political career and be back on the Tory front bench again fairly soon.

The problem is to identify the sort of civvy job that TC will find congenial, and where his remarkable abilities will not be wasted. Not easy . . .

I was in Mid East when Blur rose to power.
Information 10 years + ago was not as easy to obtain as now.
I considered him a Snake Oil Salesman the first time I became aware of him and my attitude has not changed.
Brown frightens me, he's Pure old Labour Tax and Spend.

Mind you Dave has me seriously worried, I'dgo for the little baldy who used to give Dear Leader such an hard time years ago at PMs Question time.

Sorry - you've got me there. Can't identify.

He means William Hague. Heard him speaking to a meeting last Wednesday. He has a SERIOUS intellect, whereas Bliar despite having been to Oxford is an intellectual lightweight.
As for Cameron. I voted for him and he is the Leader. I believe he might surprise us all. I just hope and pray he 'retires' from the spotlight, allows his Shadow Ministers to field and answer questions in their respective fields and does not allow his family into the public domain.
