The Killing$ of Tony Blair – Trailer

3 November 2016

Some people make a living, others make a killing

Coming Soon to iTunes.

Many believe Tony Blair should be charged for taking the UK to war in Iraq. Labour MP George Galloway has made a career out of challenging Blair: in this film he deftly makes his case. What emerges is a tale of Blair’s malfeasance whilst in power and power-broking whilst not. Cosying up to dictators and media moguls, Blair has made a string of questionable friends in high places. In the process, he has also made a personal fortune.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Elite plot an EU stitch-up

Saturday 26th November 2016

ANYONE wondering why the public stock of politicians is so low in Britain could begin by juggling the names John Major, Tony Blair, George Osborne and Nick Clegg.

Major, the man who privatised the railways and threw tantrums over back-bench “bastards”; Blair who dragged Britain into the Iraq war and has sold himself to wealthy tyrants; Osborne who attacked workers’ living standards in a failed deficit-abolition strategy; and Clegg who reneged on election pledges for government office.

So egregious are their records that shame and embarrassment ought to guarantee their long-term absence from public discourse.

Yet these political deadbeats sound off as though they are respected veterans whose words bear weighty consideration.

Blair intends to involve himself once more in politics to provide “space” for “millions of effectively politically homeless people” as a result of Theresa May taking the Tories to the right and Jeremy Corbyn forcing Labour to the ultra-left.

He denies calling May a lightweight and Corbyn a nutter and such is his reputation for respect for the truth, that must surely go unquestioned.

The former Labour prime minister insists that there is a huge gap opening for a new “progressive centre or centre left” campaign but that he cannot be its public face.

This isn’t because the public has seen through the pretensions of a man once seen by many as a bright new contrast to a generation of turgid machine politicians.

No, it’s because there is “too much hostility” and elements in the media would move to “destroy mode” if Blair of Iraq sought a prominent role.

If not Blair then who? He’s consulting widely, holding meetings with Osborne and Clegg, although what either has to do with “progressive centre or centre left” is anyone’s guess.

His promised space would be a new institute, combining his charitable and commercial interests, as yet unformed and unnamed other than that the first two words will be Tony Blair.

Success of this venture must be all but assured now that former Blairite MP and Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy has been recruited to advise and bolster the institute’s “political clout.”

Perhaps a little similar to what Murphy achieved for Labour in Scotland where he drove the party into a ditch and then legged it.

Whatever political differences there may be between Blair and his fellow has-beens, Britain’s continued membership of the European Union, irrespective of the referendum result, binds them as one.

Major betrays his contempt for voters by referring to a “tyranny of the majority” and insisting that the views of Remain voters must be heard.

This bizarre phrase recalls Tory Lord Hailsham’s rants against an “elective dictatorship” when he expressed fears that Labour might pass legislation he disagreed with no more justification than that it had won a general election.

Major, Blair and co pay lip service to the electorate’s clear decision but they stress their determination to undermine it, deploying sophistry along the lines that people voted to leave but, when they see the implications, they could reconsider.

There should be no accommodation to this attempted putsch against democracy.

Over two-thirds of people, irrespective of how they voted in the referendum, want talks to start as soon as possible to negotiate post-withdrawal British-EU relations.

If anything smacks of tyranny and dictatorship, it’s the efforts of bent politicians to impose their wishes on an electorate that has rejected their plans for our future.
