Blair Hung in Portcullis House


Tony Blair was hung in Portcullis House this afternoon. Well, his portrait was. One MP said to me it should be captioned 'apres moi, les deluges'. Another said its title should be 'Contemplating Gordon Brown'. Personally, I'd have thought 'Fancy a quick one, Carole', might be appropriate. Massage, that is. Natch.

Wish he was being properly hung by the neck!

I'd come to London to see it!

Doctor: "You look a bit down Tony".

Tone: "It's like this Doctor. I just feel really depressed. We only have a trifling £17 million in the bank. I'm getting paid millions for doing nothing by a very nice bank. My wife is a top barrister and we have a gorgeous house in a leafy square. And that Ken who I can't stand is losing."

Doctor: "What on earth is it then?"

Tone: "I've just heard that Gordon is thinking of going back to Labour policies to get re-elected."

His positioning tell us what he thinks about himself - looking down like a deep thinker.

The painter uses his brush to convey what he is really like - a man broken by stress.

There was I thinking that a man or woman sentenced to death was hanged ...

He is probably thinking:

"Bugger, Gordo's screwed up the housing market faster than I thought - now what is my mortgage payment this month?"

What's with the suit and tieless collar? He looks like something from a black and white gangster movie. Fantasising as always.

Also, his face looks as though he's just taken an Alka-Seltzer and is holding back a burp.

Well, according to the stunning Carole he's 'hung' elsewhere, too.

'- like a bear', she says...

Looks like an excellent portrait of Blair to me. I reckon it will sit well with those of Churchill and Mrs T.

The three greatest Conservatives of our time.

You never see Tony Blair and John McEnroe in the same room at the same time, do you?

Or perhaps the portrait came from a 'Painting Celebrities By Numbers' kit.

Why are we hanging up a luxury painting of a lying, inept traitorous megalomaniac?.

Adrian Yalland said...

Shame it wasn't at Tyburn. Wasn't that where Catholic traitors are usually hung?

And talking of Catholic's, I feel sorry for genuine Catholics, who must be embarrassed by having someone so discredited join their ranks - especially one who takes such an pic-and-mix view of which bits of Catholic doctrine he likes!

I suspect his conversion was more about securing the support of European catholic politicians on his mission to become the next EU president.

awful picture

Perhaps one day there will be a museum in Baghdad dedicated to the victims of the Iraq war, and this portrait will be hung next to the summary judgment for Blair's war crimes.

Game is hung, humans are hanged ... oh yes, I see, a portrait.

That was very cruel of you Mr Dale. Apart from seeing The Tartan McReich's Führer dispatched à la Nicolae Ceauşescu, few political developments could please me more than the execution by hanging of the Snivelling Little Rat, with his duck faced bitch of a wife.

I hope the picture hangs where it is vulnerable.

8:40 - You beat me to it! I was going to write that they'd got the portrait down from the attic ... but I didn't because, actually, he looks that bad in real life.

Hung or hanged, he deserves it. This man is responsible for more deaths than Saddam Hussein. But call me callous, but I don't care about that. What I care about is how society has been dismantled by NuLab policies; how ordinary people, born here, hard working people have been shat on an shafted and lied to. Under Tony Blair we have seen, in no particular order, the emergence of an ambulance chasing blame culture, the eradication of school discipline, the impoverishment of the working classes, the tyranny of minorities over the majority, the emergence of home-grown terrorism, the biggest rise in personal taxation, etc etc.

But above all, Bliar has presided over the death of nationhood and statehood and the right to determine our own destiny and that of our children.

Hanged? And drawn and quartered and fed to the dogs.

verity said...

WW - Agreed. He dismantled our country, block by block. of our ancient institutions, line by line of our Anglo Saxon Common law, stitch by stitch of our civil society and assaulted our national identity as he fed it through the shredder.

I see no one in the Conservative Party with a plan for shoring up our beloved country. All I see is other zombies who are trudging mindlessly along the same path.

Some of the zombies have bells and whistles. But they're still the living dead.

So that's what happened to Humphrey from Number 10.

Blair had him made into a rug.

That hair is never natural.

verity said...

He, an actor manqué, posed in front of the mirror for hours twisting his face into a pathetic "bulldog pose" around the mouth and cheeks to try to ride on the achievement and glory of Winston Churchill.

I wonder when this ignorant carpet rat is going to embark on a series of books recounting, in literate, knowledgeable, compelling lanaguage, the glory of Britain and her people.

Tony (querelous voice): "Peter. Alistair. Are you there? I've just thought of a new policy. Hello? Peter? Let's call ourselves New Everything. Alistair, can you hear me?"

T. Blair: Truely a man of the times, open necked and limp wristed.

He looks like Victor Meldrew, the miserable bastard, or Lucifer's twin brother.

Verity's spot on, as usual. Can we start again, please? The three main parties just don't get it, do they?

Blackacre said...

verity you say he dismatled our Anglo Saxon common law. I think that Ted Heath (entry into the EEC as was), Margaret Thatcher (Single European Act) and John Major (Maastricht treaty) did more than Blair did. Ultimately he was a coward about major changes and was as such a conservative, probably more so than Thatcher in the sense of conserving the status quo.

Anyway, common law is really a Plantagenet invention. The Anglo Saxons still used trial by ordeal. Although of course I suspect that you would like to bring that back...

vervet said...

The Bliar always, but always reminds me of something comedic ... in this case TW3 - John Cleese "looking down" on Ronnie Barker (represented here by an out-of-frame G. Broon).
(With apologies to younger viewers)

Mmmmmmmm ... Tony Blair ... trial by ordeal ...

Tony Blair continues the trend set by pacemaker John Major in modelling every shade of grey, especially in the face.

Am I the only person who thinks this is an extraordinary portrait of Jim Hacker?

Wow, nothing seems to unite the readers of this blog more than a common loathing of Blair! Is there anybody out there who still likes him?

(For my part, I hate his guts.)

verity said...

2:04 - What do you mean "still" likes him? Are you a socialist? I believe most people on this blog read is in his face and his words exactly what Blair is the minute he first crawled onto the national stage, leaving a vile stench in his snail trail.

He appears to be turning into Simon Jenkins.
