That is of course for public consumption. There will be much more of that
rhetoric. But the Guardian's editorial ("Reaping the Whirlwind") reveals
another face. There is a section of the British and international ruling
class that fears the brave new world that Blair has created by following
the lead of George Bush.
Photo opportunities in British pubs appear more than a little irrelevant
compared to photos of the horrific bombings in Istanbul.
Nero fiddled they say while Rome burned. Yesterday George and Tony tucked
into lemon creme brulee at the Dun Cow Inn, while out there in the real
world people gazed in horror at the devastation caused by Al Qaida. Well
done Mr President and Mr Prime Minister!
