"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

An interview with Tony Blair « Previous | |Next »
March 3, 2003

This is an interview that Tony Blair gave on the weekend in which he, like John Howard, brushes aside the mass anti-war demostrations. Blair takes the big picture approach--history will be the judge of his actions not public opinion. He comes across as a true believer; he cannot resist running the 1930s appeasement against the anti-war movement; he spins the line that criticism of the government sends mixed messages to Saddam Hussein.

The lines are similar to John Howard's.

An excellent close reading, and critique, of Blair's interview can be found here by John Smith.
