Blair urges open debate

No, not really. Any contrary suggestions are merely rhetorical flourishes.

The world has changed, he says. We are buffeted by forces beyond democratic control. That this changes and forces seem to benefit those who have is entirely coincidental. On opposition to globalization – or, more accurately, the usurping of democracy by transnational capital – Blair has written:

“There are, I notice, no such debates in China.”

All too often Blair demonstrates his frustration with law, with democracy, with opposition. Was there ever a quote that better summed up the tragic masquerade that is Blair’s ‘democrat’ costume?

Thanks go to ChrisD at The Sharpener for pointing out this quote.
