Words of Great and Patriotic Leaders

Quotes from the great and patriotic Tony Blair:

"I can only go one way. I've not got a reverse gear."

"I didn't come into politics to change the Labour Party. I came into politics to change the country."

"It is not an arrogant government that chooses priorities, it's an irresponsible government that fails to choose."

"Power without principle is barren, but principle without power is futile."

"The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes."

"Our tolerance is part of what makes Britain Britain. So conform to it, or don't come here."

(When asked by a member of Parliament why he believed so much in America)
"A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... and how many want out."


  1. You missed, "I have made around £25 million speaking to Americans, travelling around the Middle East meeting my 'friends,' and selling my soul to all comers."

  2. No, that was the plastic socialist with a £3 million pound castle, a £3 million pound house, and several other houses his wife bought because she came from a poor family and not because she is a greedy socialist bitch!house

  3. Hang him! Send him to Alabama with a sign reading 'I love blacks!' And her too!

  4. Adulled...I'm shocked, shocked to hear you speak so vehemently, cruely. Where is your Christ-like compassion or is it merely liberal (man generated) compassion? Why are you so surprised with Blair? All the good liberals over here live like that.

    Max was that "mercy" for you or him or were you simply taken aback as I?

  5. Leaz, just for you I will follow the biblical approach.

    STONE THEM!!!!!

  6. Speechless. Devastated. So disillusioned that a pious cave-dweller, a man of dank self-denial, cannot, in the end, find the grace in his heart to embrace and love our brother Tony and his wonderful help-mate. I'm just going to put this behind me and try to move on.

  7. For absolution, please mail £75 to:

    Vicar Ezra
    C/O Tropic of Capricorn Worldwide Outreach Ministry
    Sheep Springs Station 31
    Alice Springs, NT

    [international money order payable to Vicar Ezra, if you please. Certificate of absolution mailed promptly.]

  8. Ez, next time say "Handsome Certificate..."

    and also "suitable for framing".

    Expecting the usual cut.

  9. I thought this was your humor blog. I thought I'd hang out here for a while. Clarity 20whatever either flies way above my head or sidetracks my day with research. I have important things to do today.

  10. @Sue - This IS humor. Slap your knee, tickle you with a feather, get it?

    And, lord knows, there's nothing funnier that making a Scotsman get so mad he foams at the mouth and soils himself. Would you not agree?

    PS - Just take my word that "Slap and Tickle" stands for "humor blog." You don't have to bother and look it up.

  11. Sue, there's nothing wrong with being made to think. Don't use that as an excuse not to visit Clarity whatever. Besides, The posts are only a front to cover what goes on in the basement. You should know by now you don't have to comment about the post. Just comment. You could even comment on BritishSpeak if you wanted. Nobody comments about the post subject there either. Why are you being like this? Just come and say something. I hate structure.

  12. Stop yelling at me, I'll be anyway I wanna be.
    Talk to the hand man, talk to the hand.

  13. I'm not yelling at you. I'm just glad you show up and comment. :)


You must be at least minimally sober to comment!
