...re the Humphrys interview with Mr Blair
- just as incoherent as I recollected. It might be interesting to put it next to this year's interview with John Humphrys (29/09) as I don't think he is any more lucid one year on - except that he has added another escape strategy to avoid ever taking responsibility - not being there .
The difference between last year and this year is that we had better not think that he is a lying incompetent, because that is probably a terrorist activity.
However, we can refute this charge quite easily by demonstrating that we are simple seekers after truth, whereas he has a acted outside the international legal framework and seems quite unable to separate truth from fiction; for example, the suggestion that he had to deal with lots of hecklers during the election campaign, which is pure sophistry. All the "spontaneous audiences" were nothing of the kind; they were carefully selected Blairites.
Unfortunately there aren't too many of these, so he had to keep on recycling the same bunch at a variety of venues around the country!
Although it is ghastly, it is coming to an end. I would bet that it will end in tears as he has lost his grip on reality and will try and stay on for a full term - and he has many enemies within the party. Once he has gone he might even be tried as a war criminal....."
