Blair's resignation speech

On 10 May 2007 Tony Blair gave his resignation speech in his Sedgefield constituency.

This, in part, is it:

“I looked at my own country, a great country, wonderful history, magnificent traditions, proud of its past but strangely uncertain of its future, ALMOST OLD-FASHIONED... I ask you to accept one thing. Hand on heart, I DID WHAT I THOUGHT WAS RIGHT. I MAY HAVE BEEN WRONG.”
You we’re wrong. As for the heart bit, are you sure you have one?

“NONE OF IT MADE SENSE TO ME. It was 20th Century ideology in a world approaching a new millennium.”
None of it made sense? You were Prime Minister for goodness sake, if it didn’t make sense why did you act with such certainty? More to the point, why didn’t you resign and let someone to whom it did make sense take over?

“People want the best for themselves and their families, but in an age where human capital is a nation's greatest asset, they also know it is just and sensible to extend opportunities, to develop the potential to succeed, for all - NOT AN ELITE AT THE TOP.”
Not 'an elite at the top?' The whole time you were in office you were kowtowing to and cultivating an anti-societal global elite and putting two fingers up at the majority!

“People are, today, open-minded about race and sexuality, averse to prejudice and yet deeply and rightly conservative with a small 'c' when it comes to good manners, respect for others, treating people courteously.“
As a general rule, the British people may be open-minded and averse to prejudice but that doesn’t mean they want their country swamped by millions of closed-minded, prejudiced aliens not the least bit like themselves! You and your traitorous crew DELIBERATELY inundated the UK with all manner of unwanted folk!

“1997 was a moment for a new beginning, for sweeping away all the detritus of the past.”
Detritus? So that’s what British history and tradition means to you? It begins to make sense all of a sudden. The 'great country, wonderful history, magnificent traditions' he spoke of in the first paragraph was, in fact, 'detritus' to be swept away.

“Now in 2007, you can easily point to the challenges, the things that are wrong, the grievances that fester.”
You sure can. Iraq, Afghanistan, mass immigration, political correctness, dumbing-down, drugging-up, 90 per cent of all the jobs taken up by Suleiman, Sanjay and Stanislaw and sweet bugger all for Tom, Dick and Harry. Did you really imagine that ‘grievance’ would never ‘fester’ when you were treating us so abominably?

“There is only one government since 1945 that can say all of the following: 'More jobs, fewer unemployed, better health and education results, lower crime and economic growth in every quarter,' - this one.”
Tony B Liar. The pseudonym is appropriate to the power of n.

“Look at our economy, at ease with globalisation, London the world's financial centre. Visit our great cities and compare them with 10 years ago.”
I’m looking at the economy in 2012. You and Gordon Brown cuddling up to the fat cats and international financiers wrecked it. You sacrificed a great nation on the altar of globalisation and greed, Tony. 'At ease with globalisation?' At ease with a world ruled by a malign, trough-gobbling elite forever and ever Amen? An elite who, just one year after you said these words, were found out in no uncertain fashion. You and they are despised to the point of hatred by the decent majority. Or should I say, that part of the majority that knows what you were, and still are, all about.

“Think about the culture of Britain in 2007... I mean our values… equality for gay people… the global movement to support Africa in its struggle against poverty… the fight against terrorism.”
I’m thinking about our culture, Tony. Trouble is, after eight years of New Labour, it’d all but disappeared by 2007.

“Britain is not a follower. It is a leader. It gets the essential characteristic of today's world - its interdependence.”
'Interdependence.' The boy's favourite buzz word. For globalisation to take irreversible root, every country in the world must be dependent on all the rest. Well, Tony, you sure did your best to make our country dependent all right. You carried on where the Thatcherites left off in that regard. Dependent on Russia and France for power, dependent on the third world for food, doctors, nurses and skilled labour, dependent on China for investment and trillion-dollar loans. Oh, you are the blue-eyed boy of the global franchise all right.

“This is a country today that for all its faults, for all the myriad of unresolved problems and fresh challenges, is comfortable in the 21st Century, at home in its own skin, able not just to be proud of its past but confident of its future.”
Come back and repeat this nonsense in 2012 and the confident-of-the-future folk will string you up, pal.

“As for my own leadership, throughout these 10 years, where the predictable has competed with the utterly unpredicted, right at the outset one thing was clear to me. WITHOUT THE LABOUR PARTY ALLOWING ME TO LEAD IT, NOTHING COULD EVER HAVE BEEN DONE.”
F*** me! We all know you’re an egomaniac but ‘nothing could ever have been done’ without you? You’re completely and utterly barking, you preposterous slag!

“I knew my duty was to put the country first. That much was obvious to me when just under 13 years ago I became Labour's Leader.”
So, 'rubbing' our 'noses in diversity,' with the millions of unwanted immigrants, 90 per cent of the jobs created during your time in office going to the same folk, the Brit-bashing race laws, Pakistanis playing the paedophile with our little girls, the EU and Human Rights law that put foreign criminals before their British victims, 7/7/2005 and the lads that are still coming back in body bags, that was you putting the country first, was it?

“Everyone always says: 'Listen to the people.' The trouble is they don't always agree.”
They don’t, Tony. They don’t. When you’re slicing up their world and parcelling it out to the ungrateful alien, the self-serving businessman and the greedy banker, the people are, indeed, somewhat liable to disagree with your preferred course of action.

“In time, you realise putting the country first doesn't mean doing the right thing according to conventional wisdom or the prevailing consensus or the latest snapshot of opinion. It means doing what you genuinely believe to be right. Your duty is to act according to your conviction.”
And you being a globalist flunkie, wholly owned by those who would, after your resignation, be paying your Faustian wages, your duty was to sell the British people down the river and wag your tail for ‘interdependence,' 'globalisation,' the Project for the New American Century and the Israel lobby, is that right?

“All of that can get contorted so that people think you act according to some messianic zeal.”
‘Messianic zeal?’ Whichever speechwriter wrote those words, Tony, he sure knew his subject matter.

“Sometimes, like with Europe, where I believe Britain should keep its position strong, you know you are fighting opinion, but you are content with doing so.”
Oh, you were always content to do whatever ‘the people’ didn’t want, Tony. We, the people, did notice that.

“Then came the utterly unanticipated and dramatic - September 11th 2001 and the death of 3,000 or more on the streets of New York.”
Excuse the pedantry, Tony, but it was a bit less than 3,000, actually.

"I decided we should stand shoulder to shoulder with our oldest ally. I did so out of belief. So Afghanistan and then Iraq - the latter, bitterly controversial.”
Afghanistan isn’t controversial? News to me.

From the mouth of Tony B Liar, an unusually honest summary of the monstrous actuality. Wonders will never cease.

“For me, I think we must see it through. They, the terrorists, who threaten us here and round the world, will never give up if we give up.”
Coorection: the wonder has ceased. From the mouth of Tony B Liar, the usual b***ocks. The ‘terrorists‘ will ‘give up’ just as soon as we stop slaughtering the innocent in their own back yard.

“The British are special. The world knows it. In our innermost thoughts, we know it. This is the greatest nation on earth.”
I think so. You don’t. You’re playing to a gallery of teletubbies here, Tony. I doubt whether anyone else would believe that you regard us with such respect.

“But, to be frank, I would not have wanted it any other way. I was, and remain, as a person and as a Prime Minister, an optimist.”
A million dead in Iraq and Afghanistan and he’s an optimist.

“But I ask you to accept one thing. Hand on heart, I did what I thought was right.”
That’s like asking us accept that sh*t is sugary.

“I may have been wrong.”
You were.

“But believe one thing if nothing else. I did what I thought was right for our country.”
Nah. You did what you thought was right for the USA, Israel, big business, the international financier, the global elite, Uncle Rupert, Anthony Charles Lynton Blair and, to a small extent, Scotland and Ireland. As for the English, you could not have cared less about them.

“I came into office with high hopes for Britain's future. I leave it with even higher hopes for Britain's future.”
Fast forward to Murdoch, the riots and the financial meltdown of 2008 and it looks like your higher hopes were misplaced, doesn’t it, Tony?

“I give my thanks to you, the British people, for the times I have succeeded, and my apologies to you for the times I have fallen short.”
Apologies are not enough, Tony.

Most of us want your head as well.


  1. Off to hell for demon blair soon I hope!

  2. Not before the British get to try him for treason, find him guilty and sentence him to death.

    By boiling.

    I hope.
