Hand on heart, I did what I thought was right," Blair said Thursday, surveying his time in power before announcing he would step down June 27.

What I find odd is the following quote:




"I give my thanks to you, the British people, for the times that I've succeeded and my apologies to you for the times I've fallen short. But good luck."

Link.



"But" good luck?

It kind of strikes me as... 'well, have fun cleaning up my mistakes'...

Id be more concerned about the evil troll who is going to take his place.

I warn you, Gordon Brown is 10x worse than Blair. This guy opennly talks about the NWO, how we need to be "more British" etc. He is one nasty piece of work..

And thats not even taking into account the financial damage he's done to this country!

You only have to hear/watch him speak once too know that he is hiding ALOT of secrets. If anyone is a candidate for the antichrist, it is Gordon Brown (not that i believe the antichrist is a physical person, btw)

Blair wasnt that bad.
He was just weak when it came to Iraq.

But, I dont think it was a choice he REALLY had any chance of going against.
On sept12 the whole world was in shock, and no one really doubted the US.
Blair did what any good nation would do and it stood with the US.

I spoke with a taxi driver the other night, I said damn Howard for folowing bush..
but he said no.....

Like it or not, Australia has to follow the US. simply because they ensure our survival should anything happen, and its the same with britian.

Before Iraq, blair was the best PM in UK history...
Iraq sunk him.

Hey welcome back SteveR. I don't really know enough about his history before the war. So for me to assume anything about the man would be ignorant. But you're a smart guy so I'll go with your assesment for now

Well, one down and two to go!

Coward and Shrub hopefully will be next. The coalition of the willing left a rather sour taste in my mouth, reflux and severe indigestion at times. No amount of antacids helped.


I do agree though with the analogy of better the devil you know...just who is this Chancellor Gordon Brown?

And...
SteveR

Don't be so quick to reject an outside point of view...perhaps it isn't really an outside point of view? Perhaps you are not aware that Australia belongs to the Commonwealth? And who is the Commonwealth?

That's what I thought. It appalls me to see some of these people commending him, for what? So far the vast majority making those comments never lived under him.
. It's the internal things you just don't get to see on the world news.

I strongly feel he has destroyed the U.K. I am outraged when it comes to Blair.

Sorry, im a member of this planet thus gives me the right, and the responsibility to say how I feel about a topic, especially when I dont agree.

dont like it, bad luck.

And plus, he has given you constant economic growth, in every single quater back to back...
England was the envy of europe in terms of economy.
how has he destroyed you?

I saw a good report on him last night where they even said in the begining he had an 80% approval rating, the highest of any british PM.
and it only started eroding after he entered Iraq.

So if your saying he has destroyed your nation, simpy because he backed what he thought was a honest action in hope for the west.. well thats a pretty limited country you have there.

I lived in the UK for 6 months last year, so I feel I have atleast somewhat of an idea of what its like compared to someone who has never been there.

and from what I saw, the country was booming, the people were happy, people were employed.. money was flowing...
sure, your suffering the same economic downfalls as the rest of the world is... thats no reason to believe its BLAIRS fault.

I no longer live in the UK, and will probally never go back for longer than a week! It's a fantastic country with great people, but it really has gone down the toilet over the last 10 years.

I'd rather be the foriener, than be in my own country surrounded by them!

There is simply no link between UK internal affairs and the commonwealth. To say so, is completely and utterly false. The organization is headed by the Royalty, and is independent from political influence. You are outside, literally and physically, how many ways should I define outside?

If you think that's what I said, you have serious issues with reading and comprehending the english language. Thought I should point this out for your own benefit.

You really havent given this much thought, have you?!

Under the Australian Constitution, legislative power is vested in a Federal Parliament consisting of The Queen, a Senate and a House of Representatives. Executive power is vested in The Queen and is exercisable by the Governor-General as The Queen's representative.

I guess the Queen has no power in the UK...just like the Queen's representative in Australia, the Governor General.

What about Royal Prerogative?

The Royal Prerogative is a body of customary authority, privilege, and immunity, recognised in common law jurisdictions possessing a monarchy as belonging to the Crown alone.

It is the means by which some of the executive powers of government are possessed by and vested in a monarch with regard to the process of governance of their state are carried out. It is not subject to parliamentary scrutiny but an individual prerogative that can be abolished by legislative enactment.

I suppose you forgot to mention that is a conspiracy theory and in no way common knowledge in Australia. It is also completely irrelevant to UK internal affairs. What exactly are you trying to prove? Whatever it is, I think you're on the wrong thread.

Where do you get off being so insulting? What happened to attacking the issue and not the individual?

Your sacrasm leaves a lot to be desired and demonstrates to me you are incapable of having an intelligent discussion.

Conspiracy theory????? It is from our Constitution...

No it is not. Perhaps you need to read over the thread once more.
Perhaps you may also learn something.

Kindly respond to statements that were directed at you. There is no insult in letting Agit know he is failing to grasp the english in this thread. Perhaps then the feedback would be useful and he would be inclined to do something about it.
