Blair thinks "Bush has let him down"....
The alliance between George Bush and Tony Blair is in danger after it was revealed that the Prime Minister believes the President has 'let him down badly' over the Middle East crisis.

A senior Downing Street source said that, privately, Mr Blair broadly agrees with John Prescott, who said Mr Bush's record on the issue was 'crap'.

The source said: "We all feel badly let down by Bush. We thought we had persuaded him to take the Israel-Palestine situation seriously, but we were wrong. How can anyone have faith in a man of such low intellect?"

The disclosure comes ahead of a mini recall of Parliament to allow MPs to vent their fury over Mr Blair's handling of Israel's war with Hezbollah and whether the recent terror plot in Britain was affected by his role in the Iraq war.

3. When you are dealing with an 'entity' without a conscience......
and with no REAL remorse, this is what you get; 'let down' is ONLY a small part of IT!

4. Tony sounds just like the other Republican rats in Washington...
who want to put some serious space between themselves and the sinking ship that Bush is running aground! Tony want's to blame it all on Bush now, but he was riding high on Bush's coat tails when he ran for PM a short while back.

Typical republicanism!

8. "How can anyone have faith in a man of such low intellect?"
Blair knew this going in when he went along with the Illegal Invasion of Iraq many months before the actual invasion. Blair mistakenly thought that he could control Busholini.

7. People have asked
What would it take for Blair's poll numbers to increase?

Here's the answer. When Prescott allegedly said that Bush's Middle East policy was "crap", instead of being castigated by the press and his fellow MPs, many have actually turned round and publicly agreed with him. Prescott's public image and poll numbers have improved amazingly for a guy who seemed on the verge of the sack a few weeks ago.

Suddenly Blair is saying similar things, albeit more diplomatically. I've no doubt that Blair has seen a disengagement from US foreign policy as a good way to increase his own popularity. It's just yet to be seen whether he would ever back up his apparent rhetoric with real actions.

11. I think this is a scam.
Chances are that Blur has already discussed this with *u**. It's a ploy to get his ratings up in the UK.

Bit unfortunate that comes out as *u** but never mind. :)
