Bdos: Clueless in Bridgetown
Despite being quite wrong in law and in politics over Iraq, Prime Minister Blair of the United Kingdom continues to escape public judicial censure. It is truly amazing and illustrates how contradictory can be the practices of even respectable institutions and states.I guess Carl Ince wants to see Blair and Bush in the dock and in chains.
Only a fortnight ago the House of Assembly whose devotion to things Westminster usually falls far short of that noble institution’s high standards, was animatedly discussing a vote of no-confidence against the Government of Barbados because a Housing Minister had misled the House over an access to the beach. Yet today in London, Prime Minister Blair and a clutch of notable Lords clearly responsible for gross errors in taking the United Kingdom into war against Iraq are being astonishingly held blameless.
