Who Says Tony Blair Talks Bollocks?

Over the years many people have accused Tony Blair of talking more rubbish than a dozen con-men and being unable to give straight answers. He talked about going to war in Iraq as it was something he "believed" was right. No evidence, no justification, just multiple uses of the word belief. A famous piece of Tony bollocks came on the day of the Good Friday Agreement, one of the most important days in the history of Northern Ireland. He started off very commendable but got slightly off-message towards the end: "A day like today is not a day for sound bites really. We can leave those at home. But I feel the hand of history on our shoulder." The other day he was asked if new Tory leader David Cameron was a serious opponent he said: "All I would say at the moment is, you have got to say, well, let's just wait and see about that, because leadership is about taking decisions, it is not just about being personable." What a straight talker...
