That Ethical Dimension

The Ascended Incarnation of the Reverend Blair has added his own eructation to the belches of righteous indignation over the idea that the actions of British troops might be open to question from the involuntarily freedomised. Both the dead-eyed warden of HM Prison UK, and the blustering blimp at the Ministry for Wog-Bombing, have already promised every possible assistance to soldiers accused of war crimes, including the kind of legal support for which civilian food-bank users are now expected to pay. The Ascended Incarnation of the Reverend Blair took time out from the Kazakhstan Reformation and the profits thereof in order to bestow the benefits of his own moral perfection upon readers of the Sabbath Barclaygraph. "I do not think this process should ever have been put in place," he anathematised; clearly the man who wanted to impose three months' detention without trial on anyone who wrote things, said things or thought things has lost none of his empyrean disdain for evidence, due process and suchlike judicial inconveniences.

    I agree with Blair, in the sense that the law should go after the organ-grinder and not the monkeys.

    I'm not sure that your interpretation quite captures the nuanced subtleties of Tony's true meaning.

    It cannot be denied that I have trouble in seeing the nuanced subtleties in Blair's pronouncements, such as his closely argued response to Chilcot's report that he still thinks that invading Iraq was the right thing to do.
