Tony who?

On Thursday, Tony Blair made a speech in Chicago, harking back to one he made ten years ago, about the menace posed by the Islamists and our obligation to occasionally dispose a tyrant or two. Poor Tony! Nobody listened in 1999 because the nutters hadn't yet destroyed the Twin Towers and knocked a big hole in the Pentagon. And nobody is listening in 2009 because that train has left the station. I just now searched the New York Times website in vain for a mention of the former prime minister in the past seven days. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
