Blair's Lost It

The Sun:
Tony Blair sported a sacred Hindu red thread on his wrist today as he faced a rowdy question time in the Commons.

A Downing Street spokeswoman said it was a gift presented to Mr Blair when he visited a Hindu temple in Neasden, north London, last week.

The thread signifies attachment to the Mother Goddess Shakti, who symbolises strength.

He wore it as he faced tough questioning over the fate of Home Secretary Charles Clarke over the foreign prisoners deportation row.

The PM was accused of "completely losing control" of his Government by Tory leader David Cameron today as the foreign prisoners scandal intensified.
Losing control of reality more like.

We shouldn't be too surprised though. Strength-enabling string fits in well with the pick and mix New Age religious beliefs of the Blairs. His Roman Catholic wife wears a magic crystal to ward off evil forces and has had the furniture at Number 10 rearranged by a Feng Shui expert. In 2001 the couple underwent a Mayan rebirthing ritual which involved praying to the four winds and smearing each other with mud and papaya. As Francis Wheen commented:
This is the enfeebling legacy of post-modernism: a paralysis of reason, a refusal to observe any qualitative difference between reasonable hypotheses and swirling hogwash.
Swirling hogwash. Sums up Blair nicely.

Blair and his latest Prop!....

Usually its the glasses at PMQs, they're on, they're off, they're on, they're off etc.

Or his peculiar looking coffee mug prop at one of his 'question and answer sessions' with the (selected) media once a month in Downing street.

The mans an actor, and not a very good one at that, gimmicks, headlines and spin, surely people have finally seen through the dangerous inept fool.
