Tony Blair the Poodle very unhappy

7 September 2010

Tony Blair is very unhappy. He had to cancel his London book signing tour because of demonstrations against him for dragging Britain into the Iraq war.

From British daily The Independent:

No, Blair! America’s parting gift to Britain’s PM

NO to CO2 emissions targets. NO to a successor to Kyoto. NO to a carbon trading market.

As Blair leaves Washington, US hardens stance on climate change

Published: 19 May 2007

As Tony Blair left Washington yesterday for his last visit as Prime Minister, the Bush administration was acting to scupper international efforts to combat climate change.

Less than 24 hours earlier, Mr Blair had basked in the apparent support of President George Bush for his stated aim of avoiding catastrophic global warming.

But it seems his appeals have fallen on deaf ears.

While Mr Bush was eulogising his friend in the White House rose garden, the President’s delegation at a United Nations meeting in Bonn was working to stop any progress on setting up a carbon trading scheme and emissions caps.

Abominable. Blind. Subservient. Ex-President Carter lambasts Blair for support

Published: 19 May 2007

The former US President Jimmy Carter lambasted Tony Blair for his “blind ” support of the Iraq war today, saying it had been a “major tragedy for the world”.

The outgoing Prime Minister’s relationship with President George Bush appeared to have been “subservient” and “abominable”, according to Mr Carter.
