I think you're overcomplicating the issue. Blair is simply an example of someone who once they gained power let it go to their head. Now we've reached the stage where it's so obviously "all about me, me, ME!" at the expense of him doing the job he was elected for.
He's a man that seems very easily starstruck, almost as if he can't believe his luck at being able to hang out with the big boys. It would be laughable were it not so damaging for the country.
As leader of a socialist party he's virtually singlehandedly destroyed more democracy and civil liberties than any previous right wing government. And if you look at the reasons behind the removal of many of these civil freedoms, you'll find they were removed to protect Blair and his Government from protesting citizens.
It's about self-obsession, not Freemasonry.
And it really should come as suprise that this latest investigation was overturned by the Government for such a lame reason. What surprises me more is that nobody has pulled Blairp on his original given reason, that the investigation was stopped for reasons of "national security". Just 24 hours later we find out it was actually because the Saudis threatened to pull the plug on a business deal, which would have cost the UK thousands of jobs. Very nasty, yes, but NOT an issue of national security. So again, Blair confidently lies in public, then carries on as if nothing wrong was said....and he is not held to account...because now we are so used to it....
