Yes, you read the headline correctly – Tony Blair LIED! He was around five years old when the ‘lying incident’ happened and he told his mum it ‘wasn’t him wot done it’ when patently he had.
This is where the current idiocy surrounding the David Cameron ‘once smoked a spliff when he was fifteen’ poo-pile in the media belongs. What a load of utter drivel! Who cares?
How can such a big issue be made out of such a non-event? He was fifteen, for goodness sake!
Why not have real stories in the media for a change instead of this inane dribble? What’s next? Tony Blair pooped his pants? David Cameron did a wee-wee in his nappy? Menzies Campbell kicked his mother from inside her womb?
How about the civilian bodies littering Iraq? The soldiers blown to pieces by roadside bombs? People like this guy, Ty Ziegel, a US Marine Sergeant who took the full blast of a roadside bomb and survived, horribly mutilated, to reach his wedding day.
Maybe the petition digitally signed by over a million motorists who are opposed to the “pay as you drive” system planned by the Government to further penalise the beleaguered motorist is more fitting for headline news? Sign it here!
Perhaps the gun crime currently sweeping the inner cities would be a better expose? After all, one of the latest victims of gun crime, Michael Dosunmu, was the same age as David Cameron was when the so-called, ‘spliff incident’ happened. Mind you, Michael Dosunmu, was poor, didn’t attend Eton and he was black so maybe he doesn’t deserve more than a byline? After all, he was in his own bedroom – maybe that’s classed as “a domestic” in the parallel media universe and isn’t worth bothering about?
Maybe the H5N1 bird-flu virus possibly being shipped to every supermarket from the Bernard Matthews processing plant? That in itself isn’t such a worry as the possibility that Bernard Matthews may have imported bird flu from Hungary and introduced it to UK wild bird population thanks to the scraps of meat that often litter a large scale processing plant.
But no, David Cameron might have smoked a spliff when he was fifteen. Thank goodness we have our priorities right!
