Keep Heat on Governments over Climate - Tony Blair of All People!

Tony Blair the British PM has just breezed into New Zealand and addressed the Climate Change Conference in Wellington. Maybe - just maybe he was hedging his bets after conniving with George W Bush to invade Iraq, against the wishes of a huge number of the British public, the United Nations and global citizens.

To many Blair is an enigma. Promising so much hope when he came to power, this vital, capable, approachable, face of young Britain, to many let himself down disastrously. Given the chalice of righteousness and a pathway to bring people of all nations together, he has to a large segment of humanity, sullied his assignment with distortion, untruths and war ... a brother who has fallen badly.

However, as a father of children, one born while he has been PM, he has risen to the occasion with climate change, as at heart he does not want his children or other children to inherit the consequences of environmental collapse.

Many people were very impressed with what he said today, especially environmental groups who have never had a spokesperson from such a high office support a green issue with such passion.

Blair said New Zealand could play a role as a proselytiser and an agent for change, and could help persuade other governments that they could grow sustainably.

"What people like you can do is to keep up the pressure on all of us, and the pressure on society as a whole to deal with this issue responsibly and quickly."

"There's a lot that can be done from countries like New Zealand to give a signal to the rest of the world," he said.

This is excellent stuff. Blair is certainly giving the New Zealand Government a good shake up as they have been “sitting on their hands says top NZ policy analyst professor Cath Wallace.

Post Script: To talk good of Tony Blair was a difficult ask for me in the above article. What he said in the above was just rhetorical verbosity. And since leaving office he is seen to be an agent for powers that want to control the Middle East, - by also dismembering it.    A neutral World Court is his destination especially of what he arranged with the unlawful invasion of Iraq on trumped up charges.

Now, NZ needs to get out and lead, so that kids can look to a future where they can gracefully grow old in a benevolent and healthy world.     

For today, the 29th of March 2006, children of the world can rejoice and that goes for all of humanity and biota within the biosphere.

An uplifting day for us all.

Well ... today 7/7/16  on Facebook, I saw after the Chilcott Report on the UK invasion of Iraq, many people were howling for millionaire Bliar Blairs blood, and I said that he as to go to the World Court for trial.
