HAVE I GOT VIEWS FOR YOU: What is the point of Tony Blair?
Tony says touch your head. Tony says never go outside ever again...
COMMENT By Oliver May
IF Tony Blair told you to jump in front of a bus, would you do it?
Echoes of what my mum used to say to me and my brothers as kids, when we played out and did something naughty because our mates had done it.
Now the naughty kid is evil-eyed Anthony. You know, that bloke who is not in Government any more, has no authority, took his country into war based on a lie and is now popping up everywhere to tell everyone what to do.
His latest spiel? Make mask wearing mandatory on public transport and offer every man and his shih tzu a Covid booster jab, in order to protect the NHS this autumn.
Whoever has taken this guy’s rock needs to give it back immediately so he can crawl back under it. He is battling it out with ‘Sir’ Keir Starmer for the most irrelevant man on the planet.
Is there an entity on the earth who actually listens to this person? If it’s you, please write in and explain why you are willing to play his own version of ‘Simon Says’; Tony says touch your head. Tony says touch your nose. Tony says wear a mask over your entire face. Tony says wear a hazmat suit to use the toilet. Tony says a lot. Most of which is not up to him to say.
ANOTHER who says a lot and just will not go away is Matt Hancock.
In October 2020, MailOnline reported that the former Health Secretary had been challenged over his comments that the Government had run unsuccessful trials of vitamin D in the treatment of Covid 19. It was claimed that the opposite was true.
There are now an increasing number of studies showing that those people with insufficient level of vitamin D are up to four times as likely to suffer severe effects from Covid 19: Insufficient vitamin D linked to fourfold increase in risk of death among Covid-19 patients
In 2020, a journalist friend of mine went to their editor to push the story of how the PCR test cannot detect infection. It can detect virus fragments if you magnify them enough [run enough cycles] but it cannot tell you if that virus fragment is live and therefore infectious.
And do you know what happened? The editor checked it out... with Matt Hancock.
“There is no evidence the PCR test cannot detect infection,” said Hancock, probably laugh-crying. “And reporting otherwise would be very reckless.”
So according to Hancock, it would be reckless to report the truth. And according to evil-eyed Anthony…oh, who cares about what he says…
Perhaps they should both jump in front of their own bus. Don’t get twitchy, I said ‘perhaps’.
I was shocked when in 1997 my dyed in the wool conservative parents announced they were going to vote labour. I remember saying then that Tony Blair was Satan in a suit. I wasn't wrong.
Blair, the Supreme Meddler, back in his favoured messianic mode: having opened the borders without our consent, pushed us into the disastrous invasion of Iraq, tried his best to stymie the Brexit vote's success-although we're still awaiting some action-, toyed with vaccine/digital passports, now wants to impose another round of futile covid-containment-diktats.
If only we had the ultimate magic wand, to cause a permanent vanishing.
