Former UK Prime Minister and beloved public figure Anthony Charles Lynton Blair (known affectionately to most Britons as ‘Tony Blair,’) has responded with an astonishingly inspirational display of righteous indignation…
To the recent police and government brutality in Catalonia.
Blair has belatedly joined the chorus of principled humanitarian opposition.
He stands shoulder to shoulder among various renowned politicians and intellectuals like the Clinton and Bush families, Bill Kristol, John McCain, John Kerry, Henry Kissinger.
And even the world-renowned renowned humanitarian and philanthropist George Soros!
A passionate interview with rugged Celtic Curmudgeon Andrew Neil of the BBC has Blair holding forth with passionately flustered indignation:
Well, it’s like this, y’know, there are absolutely no arguments whatsoever against letting the oppressive Rajoy regime get away with murder.
I mean, if you want to put it this way, the illegitimate Rajoy regime has lost all claims to credibility, if you don’t mind my saying so, as it were!
National sovereignty is not an absolute.
It is purely contingent upon accountability to the international community.
We can’t just sit there! Something MUST be done!
Fellow middle-of-the-road socialist reformer Jeremy Corbyn says:
A humanitarian intervention would be most unwise, and is very likely to result in unintended consequences for Spain, its neighbours, and perhaps even the whole of Europe! We would be well advised to sit back and reflect on the possible implications of such a terrible war.
Word has it that Blair is planning to respond in a huffy Huffpost piece tomorrow, provisionally entitled:
Don’t mention the war? Well, it’s all very well for you to say that, when you’re not in the man in the driving seat, making the tough decisions!
By some very strange coincidence, a severe and deeply anomalous distortion in national opinion polls for Catalonian independence occurred within several hours of Blair’s latest deeply helpful and deeply unanticipated intervention.
If we can somehow work out what that’s all about, we’ll be the first to let you know!
