Thread Name: BS: Blair and God...and Obama
Subject: RE: BS: Blair and God
not afraid to get in there and fight for what he believes.

He has never risked his skin in his entire life, so far as I have heard. Political risk? Big deal.

Having said which, I can't see where the mileage is in focusing too much attention on the fact that Blair has said he believes in God, which is hardly news.

Obviously if that is sincre it has to imply that he is aware that, even if he gets away with things so far as the public, or his political colleagues, are concerned, that still wouldn't mean he's off the hook. Quite salutary for political leaders to remember that.

I believe Roman generals having a public Triumph (sort of ticker tape parade as a reward for some victory) were supposed to have a bloke sitting in the chariot with them whose job it was to nudge them from time to time and to remind them that some day they too were going to die.
