Some rather good news

The Evening Standard reckons that Mr Tony is about to get questioned by Her Majesty's finest over 'cash for peerages'. No wonder French politicians are so keen on immunity from prosecution...

Rubbing my hads with glee to one side, I also think that is totally unacceptable that 'Scotland Yard sources' can put this information out.

All credit to the SNP in pushing for this investigation.
I doubt whether Emily (if Verity will allow me to use the term) is losing too much sleep over this. Bliar was a barrister- he'll have covered himself pretty well on this issue.

Though I imagine Gordo is enjoying the prospect of a dollop of bad publicity being smeared over his erstwhile friend...

By all accounts Labour is distinctly short of money, and I don't imagine the well-heeled will fancy giving at the mo'. Plus the unions still seem pretty cheesed off with Labour. Interesting times...

Well, gc, Emily may be a barrister, but I don't think he was a roaring success. I think he survived on public money. I doubt whether he has ever had one important brief.

I don't think his wife is that much brighter - but I think she was more of a swot, so probably has more knowledge than him.

Will he have covered himself? I am not so sure. He has a fatal character flaw: he believes he's invincible. Nothing bad can happen to him because he has so charmed the entire universe and beyond that he will be protected.

Lord Levy has all the money in the world, yet we may well see him do the perp walk. And he is one hell of a lot more intelligent than Tone.

I agree that Emily is clearly convinced of his messianic importance and immunity from the laws that govern mere mortals. I sincerely hope Plod can come up with the prosecutorial goods. We shall see...

You will probably have seen Guido's post on the parlous state of Labour's finances- £27 million in the red and party membership at a mere 178,889. They do seem to be facing difficult times ahead...

Well, if Mr Tony ends up in the Big House, maybe they can solve the funding problem by re-recording 'Free Nelson Mandela'....

You could have Byers and Milburn on backing vocals.
Yet 'Free TB' doesn't quite have the same ring about it.  

Blogger Croydonian said... 5:09 pm

But 'free-eee Anthony Linton' scans quite well, doesn't it?

The screaming nancy boy that is Anthony Blair like all psychopaths considers himself to be invincible , he will have sliiped up somewhere. This all depends on how much plod wants to get him and one minion cracking.

What was it J Enoch Powell (he used to be in the phone book by the way, knowing full well that people would not know that J.E Powell was he...) said?: "All political careers end in failure".

Peter, I was beginning to grow concerned at your absence. I loved the comment about Pauline Prescott that you posted over at guido's...

Oh, hello, Peter. I agree that Blair will have slipped up somewhere. He's not a detail man, I think we agree. Other people write his speeches for him. Other people decide his policies for him. Other people arrange getting party funds for him. He's the ultimate front man.

And I agree with Peter Hitchens: He will have slipped up somewhere. It all depends on how much plod wants to get him. Hmmmmm, I wonder if any of the top brass loathes him. It isn't hard.

perhaps a £27 million reward might help il chip in with a tenner.
