View Full Version : Four men arrested after eggs thrown at Blair
5th Sep 2010, 15:24
Four men have been arrested after eggs, bottles and shoes were thrown at the former prime minister Tony Blair as he attended a book signing in Dublin.
I should think so too, they should have the book thrown at them, disgraceful.
The missiles, which were thrown by anti-war protesters, did not hit Mr Blair.
While they are in jail, target practice should be given, so they get it right next time.:E

Use bigger eggs

I always find glass bottles are better to throw than plastic as well. :E

Unless the eggs were rotten, a waste of good eggs. Half house bricks would be a good idea.

What I'd like to know is, with the massive police cordon across the shop, how was anyone going to get in to buy the :mad: book?

If they had of managed to hit Blair with an egg, Cherie would probably have wrung out the suit and scrambled the remains.
I can [almost but not quite] forgive Mr Blair for being a lying, delusional, self-absorbed religious zealot, but I can't bring myself to forgive his wife for being a hypocritical, money grabbing, selfish, legal parasite with a face like a bulldog licking p1ss off a thistle.

Where do we find the book? Are the shops putting it on the Fantasy, the Romance or the Crime shelves?
I gather that Waterstones already have it in the remainder bin.
I gather it's in the shelves pressed really really tight against The Third Man............

Bullets would be more appropriate than eggs.

Where's that thread about toilet paper :confused:

Personally, I would like to see Mr Blair put on the back of a flat-top vehicle in a set of stocks and paraded around every major town and city in the UK. It would do wonders for the farmers - all those rotten eggs and tomatoes could be purchased and used up instead of going into landfill, it would provide entertainment for everyone whatever their political persuasion, and would take the media focus off the Pakistan cricket debacle, or the indiscretions of Mr Rooney, both of which I'm increasingly tiring of hearing about.

Here's the situation, three times as many people queued for Tony Blair's book as took part in the protest. That's according to the news. Bear in we are talking about a former British prime minister, that is BRITISH prime minister in IRELAND, the REPUBLIC OF.
The protestors were quite frankly the usual cranks, the pro Palestinian, left wing, Irish Republican diehards who represent nobody but themselves.
That's was the reality of the situation in Dublin.
In Britain, it might be different but frankly I cannot see the make up of the protesters being much different except for the Irish republican diehards.

If he was to just slip out of the public scene, he would do himself a huge favour. He is neither the most popular, nor the sharpest tool in the box. Tony, give up! You are a w****r. Leave my Consciousness. I will be a calmer person if I don't think of you or your ex mate Gordon. They even hate each other. Identical twins eh?

He kept Canada out of Iraq, but frankly the World would have been better off if he had been running the UK at the time.
Had the UK stayed out, it was just possible that Bush would have been deterred.
Too bad Spandau Prison was demolished as I can't think of a better place for Blair and Bush to spend their retirement.

He's supposed to be doing a book signing in London this week. I hope that the Met refuse to police it on grounds of cost, and the saving s that they have been told to make or that if they do police it they send the bill to Mr Blair himself.
Plastic bottles are easier to throw if they are full of urine.
Mr Blair could then take it home:he took the p&ss for all the years he was Prime President.

Are you sure he has the necessary coordination to be a w****r?

If you hit him with the eggs its Common Assault. If you chuck flour on him as well, its Assault and Battery. :oh:

I see the meeja have adopted the loathsome creature once again and we are having to suffer his pronouncements on the prison service and what he insists on calling 'global warming'.
He also appears to have bottled out of his Wednesday London book signing plan on the grounds that he doesn't want to overstretch the police!

So during the event did they scramble the security? You have to throw things eggsactly right for the protest to be a shoe-in victory. :rolleyes:
ummm ... not too good at puns. :)
