Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me

In today's 'Times' Sir Ken Macdonald, the former director of public prosecutions, is quoted as saying that Tony Blair lied to persuade the British parliament and the British people to support the war on Iraq, while adding that his the spin and grin man's basic flaw was his 'sycophancy towards power' and his inabiltiy to resist resist the 'glamour' he attracted in Washington.

Well, we are getting there and in response to an article in the 'Guardian', which is based on the 'Times' article, one reader writes; "What a self-serving, sanctimonious, hypocritical, amoral little right-wing scumbag Blair turned out to be." Yes, nothing new here, Blair deceived the British people, he was "Uncle Sam's" bum licker, his sycophant, and the is a "self-serving, sanctimomious, hypocritical, amoral little right wing scumbag." Nevertheless, these are only character flaws that Mr Blair could brush aside with a, "well you are entitled to your opinion, we do, after all live in a democracy" or even counter with a simple, "no I am not". The scumbag has thick skin!

Let us get down to the nitty gritty with "buggerlugs" here, our spin and grin hypocrite; this man is responsible for a massive crime and it is time to look at the consequences of his actions, it is time to emphasise what happened because of his crime. Show the pictures of the young British soldiers with no limbs, the Iraqi children lying dead, and show the pictures of "his smugness" grinning and spinning with his partners in crime in Washington. Tony can live with a character assasination and he is still going to be welcome in Jerusalem and Washington, he is still going to get prime time televsion space on Fox News, he is still going to be giving after dinner speeches for hundreds of thousands of pounds. Let's move onto the nitty gritty and emphasise what this "self-serving, sanctimomious, hypocritical, amoral little right wing scumbag," this "lying, sycophant" caused.
