In 1997, I thought: John Major is a great bloke. Yet he is entering this General Election against a media-savvy Leader of the Opposition. Tony Blair is shrewd, even if he cannot argue policy for policy as well as the PM. He simply understands how image will work in this General Election.
Karmically, we knew that maybe one day, he would come up against an opponent who will play to the cameras and the media with a load of bollocks, yet come out looking good.
I never thought it would be Mahmoud Ahmandinejad.
What I do not want to see now is Nancy Pelosi returning to the US with a Hitleresque piece of paper with ‘I will be good’ from the man, in her attempt to be America’s Neville Chamberlain. Posted by Jack Yan, 10:52
Pelosi is stupid enough to believe Ahmadinejad would keep his promises too.
I can’t help notice all the parallels. Now Ahmadinejad says he has escalated his nuclear programme. After he said he wouldn’t.Post a Comment
