Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has very often got a lot to say, about a lot of things. You can still find him in the press every week, sometimes every day, casting out his opinions, keeping himself in the public eye, potentially eyeing up the return to the political arena we all know he would not only love, but really thinks the people are waiting for.
Blair’s opinions are known to even those who wish they didn’t. Loves the EU, doesn’t much like talking about Iraq (really thinks that’s all been covered, and really can we not just move on?). Or Libya. Yugoslavia. And some more.
But gosh, does Blair, who now runs a consultancy business and has set up various foundations in his own name, including the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, really does love talk about the EU. In fact, it’s pretty much all he talks about these days.
If you’re reading about Tony Blair in the media, you’re reading about Tony Blair talking about the EU. And it really is pretty much all the same, and has been for a long time.
Which actually makes much more interesting than the articles keeping Blair in the public eye, the comments beneath about what the actual public thinks of him. I’ve had a look at recent articles, and chosen those comments by people identifying themselves as British, where possible, for the purposes of this.
Daily Mail, 18th September – Arch Remainer Tony Blair brands Brexit a ‘self harming act’ and suggests the UK could STAY in the EU
England expects, suffolk, United Kingdom, 1 week ago
He sold his soul to the devil and he will have his day of reckoning. Along with all the other co–upted politicians who signed their nation sovereignty away to contracts without their citizens consent.
Weapons of mass destruction! Liar and murderer.
Ok, that’s a national paper, let’s go to the regions.
Brexit has one-in-three chance of reversal, claims Tony Blair – the Birmingham Mail, 19th September
Does this man not realise how despised he is by the British people? Anything he says has a devious undercurrent to it. His time is done, thank God, so he should butt out and maybe do another series of highly paid ‘speaking engagements’ as pay off from his masters in the USA.
Why is this idiot not locked up
Reassuring to know that this fine statesman is fighting for Britain.
Back to national with the Sun, from September 20th.
Hopefully there’s better odds on his asassination.
Tony B.Liar is a liar, a thief and a conman. He lied about WMD to go to war, he stole thousands of peoples pensions and sign up for the PFI (private finance initiative’s) that are now crippling the NHS and education budgets. The man makes me sick and anyone who listens to him or follows him must be smoking something illegal.
There we have it, how Tony Blair is regarded by the British public a little over 20 years from when he first came to power, in an almost unprecedented wave of optimism. A British public who he really does rather hope to return to.
