POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY JAMES DENESLOW IN THE GUARDIAN
Blair's "jobs" are his American-supplied sinecure for having served imperial interests.
In fact, Blair's "jobs" are the only thing the British people can show for the colossal waste of invading Iraq. They gained no American acceptance for any of their views.
As far as Blair's Mideast "job," he was told at the time he would have nothing to do that in any way worked away from U.S. policy. He gets to be a messenger-boy with a nice suit, limo, and free bubbly.
And as all thinking people know, U.S. policy is the underlying reason why there is no peace: it totally supports Israel's slow-motion process of ethnic cleansing.
The personal bounty Blair is enjoying is typical in America where long-serving conservative hacks get appointments as well-paid, exalted "fellows" to various propaganda institutes like the American Enterprise of the Heritage Foundation.
But no one should be jealous of the pathetic former prime minister.
After all, he has to help keep that charmer, Cherie, in monstrous mortgage payments, thousand-pound haircuts, and personal assistants to keep her from sounding and looking like Liza Doolittle.
