    On a recent trip to the United States ,
    Tony Blair, Ex. Labour Prime Minister of the UK and now U.N. Middle East Peace Envoy, addressed a major gathering of Native American Indians.

    He spoke for almost two hours on his success in bringing about a lasting peace settlement amongst the warring nations of the Middle East, likening it to the way that the U.S. Government found a suitable agreement with the North American tribes.
    At the conclusion of his speech, the crowd presented him with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name - Walking Eagle.
    A very chuffed Tony then departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds..
    A news reporter later asked one of the Indians how they came to select the new name given to Tony Blair.

    They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of shit that it can no longer fly.

    Excellent, but Walking Vulture would have been more appropriate.

    Taking a glass half full approach I do think he did a good job bringing some degree of peace to Northern Ireland. It is far from perfect over there and deep divisions still exist but at least they aren't killing each other on a daily basis.

    And the story in the OP is as real as the two dogs juggling story. No native American would perpetuate that myth.

    If that man is ever run over by a confused menopausal woman driving an unfamiliar automatic car it will be me.





    Edit, said in a hypothetical jokey way of course.

    Probably because he bribed, figuratively speaking, most parties involved
    Also sent out letters absolving terrorists, sorry freedom fighters, from prosecution.

    What a good job he did in Iraq as well getting rid of the WMD

    Yeah, im not much of a fan (n)

    I first saw Tony when he attended a large meeting regarding a dispute over pay as usual. It was well before he was prime minister. I had never heard of him. It was held in a very large auditorium. I was right at the back and could hardly see him. What I could see I did not like and my overall feeling was I would not trust this bloke as far as I could throw him. My thoughts have never changed

    He can't really take much credit for that. He just ran with a process that was already way ahead of him. It was John Major risking all to have secret meetings with Sin Fein that brokered that deal.
