Yeah I know, I know, British right wing newspaper tries to stitch up Tony Blair saying he would be happy to work for Vladimir Putin.
He did not say that, but he hardly said that he would draw the line either.
The idea that Blair had actually done a real job before entering politics is a bit of a rib-tickler too. Being a Barristers Clerk is not exactly the kind of executive experience you really need when your next job is being an MP, then... Prime Minister.
Blair is emerging as one of the most astonishingly un-self aware figures in British political history, the Mr. Pooter of politics.
Tragic, what a missed opportunity. We are still counting the cost today.
