(*Above: Tony Blair, currently busy bringing peace to the Middle East) I’m in a quandry. After nearly suffering a debilitating Anger Stroke over the suggestion that Tony Blair should be EU President, I’m now finding myself wildly swaying between two points of view; he should absolutely NOT be, and, actually he should… Here, arguing the brilliantly mishcievous case for ensuring the fucker DOES get the job is George Monbiot, whilst on the other hand with the more traditional and generally popular view that he he should basically just go burn in hell – though far better expressed – is Mark Steel. Which to choose, which to choose… Oh – hang on. We don’t choose. There’s no bloody vote is there. Pic; original source unknown.

I must admit to still being close to incandescent with rage at the idea that Blair might be some kind of shoe-in as EU president. I’m certainly outraged at Glenys Kinnock proclaiming him “the UK’s choice” (I sure as fuck didn’t vote for him… did I miss something?) but on the bright side I’m confident of the IQs of our friends on the continent that they wouldn’t possibly stand for it.Although I would like it if they had a bit of fun by voting for him, got him over there and then ran him straight off to the Hague for trial… Steve Bell, as usual, gets it spot on.

Tom Lehrer famously said that political satire was obsolete when Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973.No matter, it seems that these things are somehow either circular or simply launch into another realm of absurdity as news confirms that our own very special lying dissembling scumbag of a war-crim / mid-east-peace-envoy Tony Blair looks ever more set to become the first EU president.You really couldn’t make it up.
