Tony Blair’s malign influence

Issue No. 2100

Time magazine has just revealed a list of who it believes are the 100 most influential people in the world.

Among all the spurious prose from famous people congratulating other famous people, one article stands out as being the most sickening.

It is by former US president Bill Clinton, writing about Tony Blair – thanking him for becoming a Middle East envoy and for working on a new climate change agreement.

Is it any wonder that the world is in such a messed up state if a disgraced war criminal such as Blair is considered to still have so much influence in it?
