This is funny. I saw a column in the Financial Times this morning from Gideon Rachman titled “The Hatred of Tony Blair is Over the Top” (no link available without a subscription). Not having read it, I vaguely wondered what that was all about. Then, apparently unrelated, I see this:
Tony Blair said that many of the challenges facing the world today were similar to those that confronted Jesus and Mohammed, the founders of Christianity and Islam.
…“We face an aggressive secular attack from without. We face the threat of extremism from within.”
Arguing that there was “no hope” from atheists who scorn God, he said the best way to confront the secularist agenda was for all faiths to unite against it.
I can honestly say that I woke up this morning not having spared any thought or emotion for Blair in a good, long while, but now it’s probably fair to say that my hatred for him is well over the top, too. In fact, I am now fully on board with Harry Hutton’s campaign to see this stupid bastard hang. (Also funny.)
