Ah read it Tommy, 'n ye spoiled ma bloody day! The only good thing about him carrying his religious torch through North America, is that there is a better chance of him being assassinated there.

Well, good old Tony always considered himself as being revered by one and all, so no surprises at that story then. Click to view attachment

The TONY BLAIR Faith Foundation says it all.
Name up in lights again in his further attempt to be one of The Worlds 10 Most influential Leaders. I notice he still has his affiliation to the CIA but this time in form of the Center for Interfaith Action.

Blair's status is such that he is now called on to sprinkle Stardust at religious gatherings.

Wonder if he'll be called on to help out here?

What can be more dangerous than a relgious fanatic in a position of power. 'What a sucker' I've got here, Bush must have thought - Bush the phony Christian, but knowing how he could harness the prejudices of the U.S. relgious fanatics. Then Blair thinking 'I can use Bush'. We should be thankful that Bush was the phony and not Blair or the wars would have included Iran and tens of thousands more innocents would have been slaughtered and many of our own soldiers.

Remember Bush at the inquiry saying Iran should be taken on
'Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition'
(Anyone remember that old song?'

There is nothing to support any claim that Tony Blair is a fanatic. Could it be that some members here regard anyone who practices or proselytises a religion as a fanatic?
Melody
I can't stop laughing at this.

Absolutely Tommy - Bush knew only too well what carries votes in the States and, who carries them - no fool eh!

Like Melody, I find this hilarious ! He and Tony must have had some interesting discussions during their respective time in Office. If Tony Blair was a true Christian and, wanted to become a Catholic I still think, if his faith was so important to him (I mean over his earning capacity, world standing as a Political Leader and the fabric of all that he held true) then he would have converted to Catholicism long ago. But, he obviously thought his 'desire' to convert would be a hindrance to his moving to greater things, hardly what I imagine a true Christian to feel or believe. Then again, I'm one of life's cynics.

Well lets hope so Rab. I doubt if I've ever listened to quite so much drivel ever before.
So much so that I cringe for the stupid man.

I think I may be both Bilbo.s, but I do agree that Blair comes across to me as being a cynic.
Melody
Blair belongs on stage but not the political stage, possibly the Glasgow Pavilion. laugh.gif The man is nothing more than an actor, he was brilliant at his part in the beginning introducing ' New Labour' until we all saw through New Labour. They snuggled up so close to the Tories that it was difficult to tell which was which. Now we have all single issue politics as they do in America. He is an ideal candidate to take on his Billy Graham role across America. I just hope that they keep him there.
carmella
Does Tony Blair not get something of the order of 500,000 for each fifteen minute public appearance or public speaking engagements? I seem to recall reading this somewhere.

Certainly, he (and the Mrs.) earn a lot more now since leaving No. 10.
Tommy Kennedy
Remember Bush at the inquiry saying Iran should be taken on sorry, I meant of course;
'Blair' at the Iraq inquiry
Yes, we laugh, BUT we had 2 very dangerous men in great positions of power, responsible for the slaughter of many innocents and 'feeding' the Islamic fanatics,Both a gift to them!

OH, make no mistake, Carmella in Blairs mind he IS a very scincere Christian and in his mind all his lies are justifiable as he is doing God's work
Rabbie
Thatcher + Reagan!

Bush (Snr, chickenshit XV1) & Brat + Blair!

Broon + O'Bama!

Wit a line up, some of the worst comedians the world has endured.

Nea wonder the rest of the world is moving away frea us with their sides splitting wi laughter.

Given the choice out yon shower, I wid settle fur Maggie. Love her or hate her, she had baws of steel and dinnea run away like a squealing schoolroom sissy when the going got tough.

She wis nah angel, mind ye, ah ken that.
carmella
Rabbie I agree with you actually on Margaret Thatcher. I think she was a great political figure. Although not popular when she tried to make Scotland be the first to pay the Poll Tax and, did have to step down on that issue.

As you rightly pointed out, she never ran away from anything and was very strong willed - perhaps that was her downfall within her own party, remember she was stabbed in the back and, I do remember feeling quite sorry for her when all of that was going on. Where is Michael Heseltine now I ask myself, he gained absolutely nothing for himself, despite all the effort he put into ousting her from No.10 - oh how the mighty fall. She was never afraid to stand her ground - which is what I most admired. I recall reading a book about her in the late 80s and she had more balls and brains than the entire cabinet here and, overseas put together.

But, at the end of the day we are well and truly stuffed on an international level because of who we have in power at the moment. It is no wonder the rest of Europe are laughing up their sleeves at us, both here and Stateside.
Tommy Kennedy
hmmmmm......Sounds like Rabbie had a wee thing for Maggie tongue.gif

Well I'd agree with one thing about her, she was no hypocrite; did not hide her contempt for the poor and the weak and even the mentaly ill.

Och there are more important things to discuss, got more pics from Wombat to post. What has that Mitzy been up to, is she still putting it about with those dingo dogs? and what great revelations has the Star newspaper to tell us.

The rest of Europe are openly laughing now. In a recent discussion with some mates here on the subject of Islamic migration an English friend pulled a German friend about the mass influx of Turks here in the sixties. He was curtly told that the Turks, even when disliked by many had, after all, been German allies and were helping to rebuild Germany, your lot have only been allowed in to rebuild your government.

Aye, like Sir Alex of Edinburgh. ave goat a wee "thing" fur dominant wimin!.

biggrin.gif

The aspects of Maggie you mention Tommy, I did not like them in the least; as fur yon poll tax caper. When all that rammy was going aon I was oot o' country and exempt, so didnea get caught up in it. I know the way it was implemented and handled was a unmitigated cock up of biblical proportions. Tomi can tell ye aboot a few of those!

Noo then, if people can get so hept up like that, why cannea they dae that noo and get rid of this shower of new labour. Oh wait nea need fur us tae vote, jist bring some foreigners in to dea that and oor joabs fur us.

I am sensing a general political apathy? Ah hope no, we need to get shot of that lot, another Labour term jist disnea bear thinking aboot. I am no really intae change fur changes sake, but this is an exception.

Auntie Carmella, as fur that poisonous rattlesnake Heckleswine. low as a vipers belly doesnea dea that wan any justice at awe. Ah wonder wit snake infested cesspit he is slithering arrond in noo, then again ah cannea be bothered to find up. I didnea laugh when she left No 10, I felt compassion for her, I could see that she was a woman destroyed by duplicitious backstabing cowards.

Ah, well, Rabbie, if you fancied Maggie - here's one that should get your pulse racing tongue.gif

Rab my wee China - I have been to your neck of the woods many times. Kent and Sussex I love them both.

Now, here's a wee story for your to savour.

I first started going to Kent when I was just a wee girl. My mother never enjoyed it - too quiet I suspect, so often it was just me and my Dad who would go. We would travel down from Glasgow to Euston on the Starlight Special always my dad would try to get a carriage (the old trains) so that I could go to sleep on the opposite bench to him - often we were lucky to find one. We would get off the train at Euston then go to Victoria, where we would board a train from Victoria to Maidstone - where I still have aunts and cousins living. I also still have an elderly aunt who lives in Ashford - she rings me every Christmas, though it's my turn to ring her this year. Once at Maidstone we would board a train to take us to Headcorn - a much changed station these days - massive compared to the old wee station that we would get off at.

We would then get the bus from Headcorn to Biddenden - my granny's house was the first one on the left as you entered Biddenden - and a quarter of a mile down the road was the village of Biddenden itself - I loved my holidays there and, I loved it in the days when you used to be able to smell the hops - I get a lump in my throat when I think of those days now, as I yearn so much to go back. What stops me, is all the travelling involved, as I would never drive there. Sometimes too, when we were on holiday my Dad and I would catch the bus back to Headcorn Station to watch The Flying Scotsman blow off steam as it passed under the bridge LOL.

Just thought I'd pass this along to you. Is the wee miniature railway still down there>?
Rab-oldname
Carmella! I had forgotten we had spoken of Biddenden before!. The 'Starlight Special' (4.10/- return) - that brings back memories of army leaves and rushing to catch it at Euston. Yes, the wee train is still running, I took the wife out to lunch in Tenterden last week and saw it there. We passed through Biddenden. Remember the 2 Siamese Sisters? Its a beautiful county right enough - but not as good as Sussex which I would say - would I no'? biggrin.gif

This won't do henClick to view attachment

Tenterden been there many times - David Frost was born there lovely in the summer with all the hanging baskets too.

Yep - "Maids of Biddenden". We canny do this cause we're off topic. laugh.gif
wee davy
Regardless of his personal beliefs, love him or hate him, you cannae fault the man for now trying to promote togetherness,... surely? What better a place to focus a 'crusade' than in the very cauldron of diversity that is USA

Some would have him down as a murderer - but I happen to think he is a man of integrity, where countless people in public life have been found to be wanting of his generation.

He presided over a period where relative calm finally prevailed in Northern Ireland - and I for one applaud his government for directing a lot of much needed public money, into the NHS - which was dying on its feet btw under Maggie.
Leavi
Tommy Kennedy
I go along Davy that there has been some good with the present Labour government, and under Blair - BUT, as I said from the very beginning re Iraq, with Blair it was a Crusade; his 'Personal belief' being a fanatic Christian who was anti-Muslim - his 'to-getherness' won't include Islam. He gave some indication of his fanaticism at the Iraq inquiry when he suggested Iran should be taken on.
He could show some 'Christianty' if he gave some of the millions he's accrued to aid the many Iraqis lifes he helped to destroy, those minus limbs etc.

He's in the right place - U.S. - with the many fanatic Christian factions, with prejudices and hatred even for each other!
It's a tragedy that his fanaticism harms the many sincere, non-fanatic, well meaning Chrsitian organisations that do seek to help people without preaching to them.
carmella
I wonder if he will join Opus Dei?
wee davy
Some VERY good points Tommy.
Togetherness must mean inclusiveness. Be ye a muslim, christian, or what ever other 'flavour'.
Sadly, dont think there are too many parties pinning their hopes on THAT poisoned chalice of a manifesto, in the coming election smile.gif

@carmella - youve been reading too much Dan Brown unsure.gif Though some would I'm sure enjoy the thought of him giving himself a good sound whipping LOL

Wombat keeps sending me fotos of featherd birds to post; I asked him if he didn't have any decent ones of Oz dolly birds. He sent me below.

Well he's going to the right place and he knows it - Blair is no numpty!

I can hear him laughing up his sleeve in the sitting room discussing the American trip with Cherie on his return and, explaining that he had them eating out of his hands.

He knows he's very popular there so why would he not go - no need to reply.

This is a couple who will never be poor - that's a certainty.

Tommy and Auldbutcher.

Dinny fash yursels - it's no worth the bother. Don't you go getting yourself into trouble Auld Butch fur that yin Blair - Scotland needs youi! You'll get caught and they'll throw you away into one of those American prisons, oh jings Auld Butch - you know what will happen to you there - just think would that be worth it!!
