Tony Blair Decides To Go Out As Badly As He Can
By making moronic, graceless and racist statements about crime
. Or, as Labour will take years to wash his stink of failure out
, is he bucking for a position at the BNP
? Or perhaps he wants to become the new Enoch Powell
. I'm picturing skinhead football hooligans going about wearing "Tony Was Right" buttons.
I wonder what his answer would have been regarding crime in Manchester
during the "Madchester
" period, which was white drug dealers doing drive-by shootings on, sometimes, of all things, bicycles. Is there something about white Manchester culture that caused this? I bet he wouldn't have said that. (although I do recall that rave culture was blamed, but not because it was white)
In any event, this will probably give Labour the excuse it's been gagging for to get rid of him early. Blair is smart enough to know this. Does he? It's just proof again that nobody should stay PM that long. (and all this in the wake of the firing of Don Imus, which made me cry not one tear; I never could even understand his appeal, or who his audience was--like Howard Stern as imitated by your dad).
