(News) Blair Plays 'God' Card Over Iraq War.....Then Realises This Ain't Kansas....

Wrong country Mr. Blair, unless NMA are right and we have become the '51st State'.

I'm not sure how the press are responding to Blair's comments to be screened this evening on a British TV Chat Show (Parkinson for those who are interested) but most of the commentary I've seen - and heard about from quotes - seems to have been pretty negative so far.

Personally I'm disgusted that a British Prime Minister has claimed this and, generally, I think many in Britain will be as whatever anyone says the country is not as 'God Faring' as it used to be and many of the Christians in this country are a lot more liberal in their views than some of their cousins abroad.

I also really liked Warren Ellis' comment on the matter...."God Said Unto Me, "Fuck Saddam He Had It Coming"""

I may have to go and browse the newspapers later as I really can't believe the press are going to take this one lightly.
