“Yo Blair!”

July 19, 2006

… said George, “we need to get them to stop doing this shit!”

Hoodies on the street corner talking about their rival posse?

Policemen discussing reducing drugs in inner cities?

Headteachers conference about truancy?

Even better, the (edited) unguarded comments of 2 world leaders discussing the Middle East at the G8 Conference. Fill you with confidence that Tony Blair and George Bush are human after all and do have conversations like the rest of the planet? Or send a chill down your spine that 2 of the most powerful people in the world refer to international commerce as ‘this trade thingy’ and are very laid-back and unPC about deadly serious sensitive issues?

Personally, it’s a bit of both.

Part of me thinks it’s good that even at somewhere as important as the G8 conference, they can both talk openly and freely using everyday language. How are we to know if all politicians normally speak like that to each other and about serious issues?

Yes we all think serious issues should be treated with respect, but even with serious issues there’s a time and a place to talk lightheartedly. WW2 is as serious an issue as you can get but how many jokes and comedies are based on it?

World leaders shouldn’t be laughing joking when deciding on policies and making decisions that affect millions of people, but even politicians are allowed a break for a laugh sometimes. It’s not like they had this conversation deliberately in front of the cameras.

However, having an unguarded conversation somewhere as ‘public’ as the G8 conference where there are hundreds of journalists, cameras, microphones and massive of security presence was, at best, naive. This yet another slip-up does nothing for US or UK public relations in the Middle East and isn’t exactly encouraging that those in power have the faintest idea what they’re doing.

” what they need to is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit and it’s all over… “

All over for whom, might we ask?

    This ‘shit’ is indeed fishy business.

    The picture also poses the question, will Bush + Blair notice Osama Bin Laden right under their noses, or do they have other more important fish to fry?

    Question is:Are they really busy in catching Osama?Are they?

    Why am I not shocked by this latest, in a steady stream of “unstatesman like” events that plague this lowlife of a man, who has ripped off the American taxpayers, continued an unwarranted war, inspite of millions of protests worldwide, and who has removed himself and his cronies from the bounds of the law and the US Constitution? He should have been run out of office on a rail, and exiled. In a true Republic of the People, “little worms” the likes of Bush and Cheney would be locked up. Where are our true Patriots! Stop Bush NOW!
