I love this from George Monbiot in the Guardian:
"Making this ruthless liar EU president is a crazy plan. But I'll be backing Blair".
Monbiot makes the very interesting argument that if Blair were EU president, he would probably have to travel to countries where the crime of aggression - waging an unprovoked international war - is recognised (it isn't in the UK, worryingly). And that would provide an opportunity to arrest the bastard.
Blair would of course argue that there was provocation - that Saddam Hussein was a 'clear and present danger' to the West. But since the evidence for that is about as good as the infamous 'dodgy dossier', I wouldn't expect that evidence to get him out of the hole.
It's a crazy plan, perhaps. And yet it might just work. Good on ya George (Monbiot, not Bush, obviously).
