Blair - which project?

Not content with being "Middle East Envoy" (isn't that the international equivalent of Minister for N. Ireland, the job that no-one wants?) and bible bashing somewhere in Redneckistan, Blair is now going to deal with global warming. He says:

"At the big G8 summit of last year everybody agreed that climate change is a serious problem, everybody agreed we need a new global deal once the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012.

"And everybody agreed that everybody should be part of it - including America and China.

"What this means is that there is a consensus now right across the world that we need a new global deal and at the heart of it there has got to be a substantial cut in emissions."

With such profound wisdom and inspiring rhetoric, he surely cannot fail. He's supposed to be reducing hot air, not adding to it.

Yes, I hate Blairs rhetoric, makes me want to puke, on every subject he uses words the same way.

I thought he was supposed to be running for EU president? And he's working for a bank (as expected), so how is he going to have time to do this as well?

Two banks, I think. I wonder if he advised JP Morgan to take over Bear Stearns. But every man should have some hobbies, like rebuilding Rwanda :-)
