"Oh GOD! Save us from the religious nutters" Tony Blair

05-03-2006 15:56

Making a television appearance on the Parkinson Show on ITV, a British satellite channel, Blair described his decision on the Iraqi war as the most important one since he came to power eight years ago, while referring to his Christian values as quite influential in his past decisions on the Iraqi issue. Warned by his advisor Alastair Campbell to separate politics and religion, the British prime minister told the audience during his television appearance that his interest in politics derives from his faith in Christianity, because the Christian moral values and philosophy guide him in his daily life as well as in his office.

Harrwoingly pro-racist Mingy Campbell gives racists a big boost !

05-03-2006 13:23

Mingy Campbell's encouragement to the so-called 'debate' on free speech at the Lib Dems so-called Spring Conference was a definitive pro-racist tactic, only possible in the UK under Tiny Blair where the three main Parties are agreed on the Crusade against the Muslims. It is no longer pretence that the Crusade begun by the USA Neon Cons is aped loyally by all three UK parties. The loss is to what remained of democracy until Saturday 4 March 2006 at Harrogate

Who is 'Tessa Jowelling' the East End for Crossrail hole attacks then ?

05-03-2006 08:33

Who is doing a Tessa Jowell on the East End of |London, then? It must be Tower Hamlets Council, without a doubt. But who is the Tony Blair minister that could be linked with that sort of deed, too close for comfort, sort of thing? Come forward Tony McNulty! And George Galloway is watching you this time! For sure! The hybrid Crossrail Bill [UK House of Commons] is still draft piece of legislation. But it may soon get passed into the UK statute Book and the powers it contains may soon begin to be applied to destroy communities including in the East End of London. This is bigger than any environmental disaster that ahs been planned and carried out on any part of London by any UK Government. That it is that massive can be seen in the very close involvement of many of Tony Blair’s ministers with key pushers of the Crossrail hole Bill attacks on the East End. Tony McNulty, now a Home Office Minister, is one such very closely involved. There are huge constitutional implications apart from the daily Khoodeelaar! chronicles of the social, the economic and the environmental ones.

I note also that your Fortress America partner ex-CIA Director Mr.James Woolsey has an offshore account in the Caymans(Palidin) famous or should I say infamous for penny stock fraud and money laundering.Yes you and he set a fine example along with Asa Hutchinson and Oklahoma's Don Nickles of how decent Americans should NOT behave. Somehow your priviledged lifestyles have led you to perceive American ethical standards legal or not are for other Americans and not for yourselves.
