Britain’s New Leadership: “I’m Staying Away from the Village Idiot”
That poor Tony Blair. He had so much promise, such a bright future. And then he fell in with the wrong crowd. It happens. Get mixed up with the village idiot and the local wackjob, and by the time you’ve discovered how toxic they are, you’ve been painted into a corner and your credibility is shot.
Britain’s new International Development Secretary, Douglas Alexander, and Foreign Office Minister Mark Malloch Brown are both determined not to be brought down by the Bush Curse. Brown said that Britain needs to “nurture a wider range of allies” — a polite way of saying “keep your distance from Chimpy.”
Malloch Brown said: “For better of worse, it is very unlikely that the Brown/Bush relationship is going to go through the baptism of fire and therefore be joined together at the hip like the Blair/Bush relationship was.”
Douglas Alexander said: “In the 20th century a country’s might was too often measured in what they could destroy. In the 21st, strength should be measured by what we can build together.”
Sorry Dumbya, your most loyal bitch has finally dumped you. What's a scorned furher to do?
