....and an unpalatable Brit

From The Guardian

If only there were some kind of an international spokesperson whose job it was to make representations to the Israelis about this kind of thing. Such a person might be called, I don't know, perhaps a "Peace Envoy". If only we had someone like that. Of course, if such a person existed they would have been heavily involved during Operation Cast Lead (aka Israel's 'second Holocaust' in Gaza).

This man, of course, having been in Israel during all the planning and the genocidal sabre-rattling, took the opportunity to spend some time at home with his money. And where is he now? In London of course, awaiting the glory (and more money of course that he expects as his due for being willing to take time out from his £6,000 per minute public speaking schedule to pretend to be interested in the EU.

There are few things that make me ashamed to be British: Tony Blair is definitely one of them.

He no Peace Envoy (as John Lennon never wrote). As Brian pointed out, he's the Quartet's Representative with responsibility for encouraging inward investment & economic development in Palestine. Whether he's done any good in that position is another matter.

You're right, aren't you? Though considering how widespread the misappelation is, I throw myself on the mercy of the court.

Of course, his actual role makes Tesco's attempt to head-hunt him look rather more savvy and less desperate.
