What Brown should do about Blair

The ever brilliant
writing of Boris
Johnson
this morning makes the best suggestion yet that I have seen for Blair’s
future contribution to
Britain, for his own good you understand.
 

He (Blair) yesterday
blamed al-Qa'eda for the civil war, and though it is true that the organisation
is now involved in
Iraq, it is also true that Osama bin
Laden and his chums were nowhere to be seen in
Iraq until the allied invasion.

Every time
he glides over what is going on, he sounds more insouciant, more indifferent to
the deaths of Iraqis, and more provocative. So I have a plan. Better than
sending him off on his lecture tour to
America, Gordon should immediately appoint
him Our Man in
Baghdad, where he could use those skills,
honed in
Northern Ireland, to heal the rift between Sunni and
Shia. Iraqis would see that he did really care about them and their government. 

In the face
of this personal effort and sacrifice, Muslim anger around the world would
abate. Yes, it's goodbye Tony, and hello Lord Blair of
Baghdad. If it's good enough for Prince
Harry, it's good enough for him.


Now even I
would vote for that.!!
