This has got to be a joke.

MPs pour scorn on Blair's new mission to act as 'faith healer'

Tony Blair is preparing a mission to build bridges between the major world religions when he leaves office, and plans to act as an ambassador for multi-faith dialogue in Britain and abroad.

Friends of the Prime Minister have told The Independent on Sunday that he is planning to set up a Blair Foundation soon after leaving No 10, and one of its main aims will be to promote communication between Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

But the plan has been greeted with incredulity among MPs who say he has done more to create divisions between Islam and the West than any Prime Minister in living memory. Norman Baker, the Liberal Democrat MP, said: "He may want to build bridges between the world religions but the fact is he has already burnt them. He has been seen to be partisan in the Middle East, slavishly following Bush, and will have no credibility with the Islamic world. It shows how deluded he is. His bridge will at best be a pier."

Really, at the least, this man is delusional.

Where does he think he has been and what does he think he has been doing for the past 6 years?

You keep forgetting who his biggest influence has been these past several years: none other than GWB. That 'splains everything.

Maybe Tony can take time out from his warcrimes trial to do this.
Have any of you seen "The Trial of Tony Blair"?
It used to be on Google Video until it got yanked off. It is a hoot if you get a chance to see it.
