Well its just come down the pipe at the BBC that Tony Blair has won the $1,000,000 Dan David prize for his contribution to social welfare marking Tony's "foresight, exceptional intelligence and steadfast determination"
Praising his role in the Northern Ireland's peace process and his "steadfast determination and morally courageous leadership" over Kosovo Mr. Blair's is hailed on the Dan David laureate' website as one of the most outstanding statesman of our era.
Unfortunately the Dan David laureate website failed to mention that Tony Blair was George Bush's right hand man when the two cohorts launched an unprovoked attack on an independent sovereign nation that cost Great Britain 178 war casualties and billions of dollars of taxpayers money not to mention the tens of thousands of Iraqi civilian casualties. The website also failed to notice that Tony's war on Climate Change has left Great Britain not only bankrupt, but with rotating blackouts as the race to meet the conditions of the Kyoto protocol, trumped any secondary consideration like keeping the economy going.
But that was probably just an oversight on the Dan David's awards selection committee.
