You shameless reptile


As Iain Dale points out, Labour are claiming credit for the peace process in Northern Ireland. As readers will be aware, it was JOHN MAJOR who initiated the process, which led to the first ceasefires. Sir John Major is a decent guy - something that can never be said of Blair. Iain also notes that Sir John hasn't even received an invitation for today's historic swearing-in ceremony at Storemont. Northern Ireland, Mr. Blair, isn't your greatest legacy - the disastrous Iraqi invasion is!

Very shabby not to invite John Major _ next thing you'll be telling me is that Mandelson got an invite! (Did he?)

An Iraqi invasion which you no doubt supported, you cheeky so-and-so

Indeed I did. I was a very enthusiastic supporter of it - as was more than 50% of the population. But we went to war on a pack of lies (excuse the pun). Remember the 45 minutes claim? And little did we know Blair and Bush didn't have a Plan B! Is that you, GB?

Lame. Some of us don't need to steer our way round dodgy dossiers to exercise better judgement.

Are you seriously arguing that credit for what's happened in NI belongs to John Major? Yes he did things which helped and you're right he's a good guy, but are you really arguing that everything that's happened since 1997 just followed on pretty automatically from what Major did?

On this logic shouldn't we be crediting Gladstone, as the first British PM to take an interest in Home Rule?

Yes and no.
