The Poodle Headed To The Pound?


by pessimist

I've written several posts about Tony Blair and the mess he got himself into by bonding his nose tightly to Dumbya's derriere. Well, it looks like The Poodle is off to be politically euthanized:

Commons motion to impeach Blair gets go-ahead

The parliamentary motion to impeach Tony Blair for "gross misconduct" over the war against Iraq will be published next Wednesday, the day after the Queen's speech.

It will be the first to be tabled in 198 years, since Lord Melville, a close friend of the then prime minister, William Pitt the younger, faced impeachment for misusing public money in running the Admiralty.

Adam Price, the Plaid Cymru MP who launched the campaign for the motion, said yesterday: "This is the only way left to MPs to call the prime minister to account over his conduct in the war against Iraq."

I guess you can kiss off that dream of becoming the first full-time EU President, Tony.
