Will he ever see the inside of a courtroom?

I suspect there are plenty of folk who would love to see him face justice

Blair prosecution opposed by attorney general, says paper - BBC News

but he does appear to have some very impressive top cover.

Even if you could drag him into a courtroom, the slimy b@st@rd would just slide out under the door.

His wife is a QC and he has shedloads of money plus friends in high places. No chance whatsoever.

Much rather see Jack Straw done over... can't stand that guy.. reeks utter insincerity unlike Tone who has fooled himself into believing what he says.

Straw on the other hand is a conniving slippery f------

Nailing Jelly to a wall is an impossibility. It's the slimy nature of it.

It has been the convention in the past for national leaders not to be prosecuted for decisions made in their proper capacity as leader. Once you start you become a typical South American state where leaders have to stay in power to stay out of jail, leading eventually to dictatorship.

Those who may be next in power have to decide if that is a road they want to go down.

Jack Straw, was our Local MP, if you asked him a direct question about the time on his wristwatch, he would dither and blather until he forgot the question he was totally and utterly useless as a local MP for a town with big civil problems plus he favoured only one type of voter, the ones where the local Council spent all the money, 74% of funding was spent in a certain three areas covering a certain ethnic population of the town, the rest were left to complain and get nothing at all .

The new MP is no better( election marred with claims of fraud), once a native of Glasgow, came to the town as a incomer, became leader of the Labour controlled Council, controlled hard questions from other parties by telling them to "Sit the F*&^K down !.. any more question,..meeting closed" so the town is no better.

But I do hope Straw is Nailed to a Cross, the slimey bastard..

Isn't that they call a "carpet bagger" or "entryist"? Apparently very common in the Labour party.

If he's that slimy, it's going to be hard task. Will he rise from the dead on the third day? ZOMBIE!

I see he's torpedoing the LibDems now, calling on people to vote for anti-Brexit candidates, which is many cases is going to be them. Blair on your side, now that's not something you really want.

The only time I agreed with him was when he decided to step down, and I'm sure he only did that because he could see the approaching shitstorm whereas Brown was blinded by the dazzling lights of No.10 and didn't do due diligence before pushing his way in.

Funny how those desiring Blair to go into a court room never say the same when Tory leaders get involved in destabilising countrys.

Agreed. There is a fair bit of Twitter traffic saying "no, please don't support us".

It is a fact that after every Conservative Government the gap between lowest and highest paid is smaller than under Labour.


At the end of the last Labour dictatorship, the gap actually widened. Then of course one has to look at the biggest bust in history, the destruction of the pensions, the sales of Honours for Party donations, the award of large Contracts without tender to Labour donors, the imposition of PFE which has led to Hospitals paying vast rental sums to Labour donating construction companies and financial institutions and now having to close wards and lay off Doctors and Nurses to pay these huge sums.


And then when it was all looking like coming to an end, Bliar gerrymandered the Boundaries so that Labour had something like an 8% advantage over the Conservatives.

Probably only as a barrister (and that does not mean making the coffee). To big a part of the establishment to be in the dock. His mega-moula-millions would also keep him out of the dock.

As a former PM he probably has loads of dirt on many people... so much so that most won't even try it....

There again maybe he hasn't any dirt on them.. but they don't know that and paranoia is healthy
