Re: Tony Blair

The whole ludicrous Honours rubbish should be abandoned. As for Mr and Mrs Blair and all the little B's ---- I don't like a single thing about them. They have destroyed the UK almost single handedly.

Re: Tony Blair

A dishonourable system that should be reviewed.

Queen said to dislike him.
Not only our Queen but also Chuck feels the same about Blair the Abominable too, so I cannot see that request going through for the foreseeable future

Re: Tony Blair

When push comes to shove the queen does as she is told, a lesson that Big Ears has apparently yet to learn.

Who cares what an over privileged under educated old woman who has lived in a protective bubble all her life thinks ?
She gave her useless pizza parlour son all sorts of honours he didnít deserve .
Blair saved her bacon when the royal family wobbled over the Diana funeral thing they suddenly realised that a large part of the population doesnít like them .
knighthoods are a load of rubbish anyway except for Captain Tom !

Definitely.

He is one of the three worst PMs we have had in my memory:
BLiar, Treason May and Traitor Heath.

BLiar should indeed have been prosecuted for war crimes. He started a war in which many of our men were injured and killed, and now he has the nerve to have his disgusting face popping up on the news all the time.

May was a traitor in that she did all she could to go against a majority vote and keep us under the control of the EU.

Heath, of course, took us into the EEC/EU without holding a national referendum/vote which, bearing in mind that we lost our sovereignty for 40 years, was unforgiveable.

I agree about the honours system.

If it is to be retained, I think that all proposed recipients should be subject to a national vote. As is, it is an old boys' club who look after each other.

Certainly the House of Lords should be made democratically electable and should number no more than 100. The Yanks manage with that number in their Senate.

Re: Tony Blair

I don't like the honours system either especially for people like Blair....Prime Ministers are usually elevated to the House of Lords this hasn't happened in his case so maybe a knighthood is second best.
