Our Glorious Leader, Leading from the Front

#1
Our Dear Leader is not afraid of making difficult decisions and justifying them...well to sycophantic interviewers anyway!

So why is he running scared of the House of Commons?

If Bliar does not speak in the debate, his contempt for those who fought and who continue to fight, and those who have been injured or lost their lives, will be written in stone forever.

I would urge a letter-writing campaign. Everyone write to their MP to ask them to ask Bliar to open the Iraq debate. After all, it was his idea (if you ignore Dubya).

Coward!



Blair urged to lead Iraq debate

The Commons debate on Iraq will take place on Wednesday afternoon
Liberal Democrat leader Sir Menzies Campbell has said Tony Blair has "a public duty" to lead the House of Commons debate on Iraq on Wednesday.
He said Iraq was "going to define" Mr Blair's time as prime minister and he had "an obligation" to debate his strategy with MPs in the Commons.

The "public were entitled" to that as there had not been a full debate on Iraq since 2004, Sir Menzies said.

He told the BBC he believed there should be a phased troops withdrawal.

The debate on Iraq is to take place on Wednesday afternoon, but Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett, rather than Tony Blair, is expected to lead it.

Sir Menzies told BBC One's Sunday AM he believed there "is an obligation on leaders, on an issue of this magnitude, to come to the Commons and explain what they think and what their parties think".

Why weren't others, who now have the benefit of hindsight, much more active in hauling the prime minister from something which even the prime minister, inadvertently, agreed has now been a disaster?

"This is an issue which is essentially Mr Blair's issue and he should appear before the House of Commons and explain where we are, where we are going and what his proposals are for an exit strategy."

Sir Menzies said UK troops should be withdrawn "sooner rather than later", saying: "We have got to come to the point of asking ourselves: can we do any more good?

"And I think the answer is that we can no longer do any more good and what we need now is a phased withdrawal."

He also questioned those Labour ministers - such as Peter Hain - who have expressed doubts about Mr Blair's foreign policy.

Sir Menzies, whose party then led by Charles Kennedy opposed the Iraq invasion and war, pointed out that in the cabinet only Robin Cook and Clare Short had voiced their opposition at the time.

"Why weren't others doing that? Why weren't others, who now have the benefit of hindsight, much more active in hauling the Prime Minister from something which even the Prime Minister, inadvertently, agreed has now been a disaster?"

During the same interview Sir Menzies also said he believed there should be a general election called when Tony Blair steps down as prime minister this year.

"There is just a sense that this government has run its course and that's why I think if Gordon Brown is crowned or elected, by whichever mechanism, then the people of the UK are entitled to have a say."

And asked if he planned to bring his predecessor Charles Kennedy back into front bench politics, Sir Menzies said it remained an issue for Mr Kennedy - who connected with public better than other politicians - to decide if and when he was ready to move back into the limelight.

obviously "follow me lads ... I'm right behind you" syndrome - mind you the Limp Debs aren't much better ... Our MP Lemsip Opec is more interested in the rights of Eastern Europeans who outstay their visa's than in the wellbeing of our troops ... however I will still write to him concerning the subject (we've got an election coming up) ...

MrPVRd - to save space - "So why is he running scared of the House of Commons?"

I am going to let you into a secret - Eyes Only between thee and me - Bliar doesn't give a t0ss that's why?

What a steaming gutless little shoit this snake oil salesman is.
Sends HM's Forces on and illigal war of invasion and now finds he's lacking the Goolies to stand up and justify the deaths and injuries he has caused.

Parliament is the last place this ignorant republican cnut wants to defend his behaviour. The Queen is head of state, she is also head of the armed forces. Why does Bliar send our troops to war without the necessary kit? Because they are the Queens forces and he doesn't give a fcuk.

Guess who is going to be publishing the cnuts memiors? Rupert Murdoch, that's who! A confirmed republican; a bloke who would rather see people like Bliar and Broon as head of state in the UK than the Queen.

Why is Bliar so freindly with the IRA? Why is he so anti-soldier? Why are his memiors being published by Murdoch?

Because he's an anti-British catholic-supporting republican (and so is his ugly munter of a wife).

Publishing his memoirs is only the half of what Murdock will be doing.
I hear as a further reward for all he's done for supporting the neo con misadventures, it has been mentioned that Blair is up for a ludicrously well paid non job with Murdoch's firm.

Being that Murdoch's a tight old sod I sort of wonder where exactly he'd get the dosh to pay him?

I can't help thinking that perhaps other parties might be wanting to reward Blair for loyal services rendered but need convenient cover to do so.

Naw...that couldn't be so could it?
And an ex P.M. who converted loans to gifts to peerages wouldn't possibly get mixed up in anything dodgy would he?

Slurboy, you are sooo cynical!

I've got a job for him, though it doesn't pay too well, and it involves my pork sword.
