0If you thought that Trump and Brexit weren’t quite enough to finish off the world as you know it, the good news is that not only is Tony Blair making preparation to do a Norma Desmond style comeback (hopefully without the close-up), but he’s dragging  Spud Murphy and possibly even McTeacake with him as advisors.

Oh, how we laughed!

Apparently, he wants to save the UK from Brexit because he thinks Tessy Mayhem is a lightweight and that Corbyn is a nutter. So clearly, he’s learned a lot about diplomacy from all the murdering dictators he’s been working with over the last 10 years.

Clearly, by employing Murphy as an advisor (I assume that the Rt Hon’s conflict settlement agency hasn’t been doing too well),  he is hoping to lose Labour another 97% of its seats at the next election. If he sticks to meddling in Brexit, with that team I’d say we’ll leave in 2 years’ time without one single concession, and with a boot up our backsides.

If I were the Defence minister at Westminster I’d get buying a pile of ammunition, because Blair can’t be anywhere near the seat of power without bombing a few middle eastern within an inch of ruin and then withdrawing wearing one of his smug smiles and saying “job done, Mr President, Sir”.

The picture at the top of the article is either Blair wearing his military outfit, ready for a good bombing somewhere, or it’s a bus inspector who’s just heard that Blair had the effrontery to call someone else a nutter!!! I’m truly not sure which.

  1. Tom Lehrer said this, a while ago:

    “Political satire became obsolete when Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.”

    It seems apposite does it not?

    Blair should be standing up in a court of law for Iraq.

    Just my opinion…..

    And here we have him, doing a final tour like the rock star he always wanted to be but never was.

    Tony Blair was when I realized that politicians lie to you, not because they have to, but because they can’t help themselves.

    Shhh! It is a secret that only we know! Best keep it that way!


    I suspect that Tony, Jim and the rest will be a ‘circle of friends’ that will invite a certain Mr McTiernan to join them. Much like the middle east peace process it will achieve nothing.

    A retired, ex-Prime Minister may not join them.

    For he has a singular friend, himself.

    God help them all.

    1. I can’t help be feel sorry for satirists. They have had their jobs taken away from them by politicians.

      Maybe programmes like the thick of it weren’t satire. Maybe they were documentaries!


      1. Someone with more knowledge than me probably should do a “citizens’ arrest for dummies” article.

        Because as soon as Tony sets foot in Scotland, he’s going to get mobbed by people trying to do that, and might get off on a technicality if they “do it wrong”

  2. It shows just how far right politics in England have become when Blair thinks he can redress the balance.
    Perhaps we will see sales of Irn Bru soaring again as Murphy brings the crate back from wherever it has been for the last few years.
    Have crate will travel.


    1. I don’t know where he’s been. I read he was meeting with Tory politicians at one point and I thought he might be seeking to join the Tories, but he’s a bit right wing for them, I think. I’m not sure if he resolved any conflicts. I suspect that the created more than he ever dealt with. I understand that he’s the kind of man who could cause trouble in an empty room.

      It will be nice to see the crate again, though. It was surely the more talented and attractive part of the double act.


  3. Interesting to see Mystic McTernan on BBC Newnight, not so much for what he said but how he said it. Does anyone know if he’s getting elocution lessons from Fraser Nelson? He seems to have assimilated Nelson’s opinions.

    1. I’m happy to say that I didn’t see him. Is he getting a bit posh? Is he getting job from Tone and Jim and the Crate.

      And most importantly, did he make any predictions? I do so love his predictions.


        1. oh, michty me. Hes one been taking elocution lessons? One will hev to remember not to dunk one’s biscuits in one’s tea when one gets one’s knichthood, will not one?

          I see that he has predicted that the next referendum on Independence will fail because it will be a referendum on the €.

          Never mind that it won’t. That would get in the way of another Nostradamasesque prediction that will go pear shaped.


  4. Tris, so sorry I have only been lurking around these past few months. Busy busy busy and fell sick a while back. The gods however have blessed us. The Pishtradamus hath spoken. We WILL win the 2nd Indyref. If Bliar makes a return, it is as good as a done deal. The only thing we need to do is to whip SNP into action. Frankly speaking, we need to engineer the 2nd Indyref. I am tired slowly, slowly approach. Sometimes all that is need is a hard shove. To quote a proverb here, “Bulan takkan jatuh ke dalam riba” (the moon will not fall into your lap). Scotland will definitely be independent regardless; but I am afraid if we wait for too long, it will be too late to undo the damage.

    1. Aww, so nice to see you again. I hope you’re feeling better.

      Yes, we can put it off for too long; after all, we won;t always have the majority in parliament required to get a referendum approved.

      Things are getting worse here becasue of Brexit. Inflation is bound to rise. We import 50% of our food and there has been a drop of 20% in the value of the pound. Scotland didn’t vote for this. But it will suffer. In teh meantime Hammond is tinkering round the edges of returning a tiny proportion of the money that Osborne took for the poorest working families.

      I don;t think it will be long before Scottish people are asking why we are being dragged through this after the depression of 2009 on.

      Life just never seems to get better here…well, except for the queen who is getting her house done up for free.
