Boris Johnson: Send Blair to Baghdad
Every time he glides over what is going on, he sounds more insouciant, more indifferent to the deaths of Iraqis, and more provocative. So I have a plan.
Better than sending him off on his lecture tour to America, Gordon should immediately appoint him Our Man in Baghdad, where he could use those skills, honed in Northern Ireland, to heal the rift between Sunni and Shia. Iraqis would see that he did really care about them and their government.In the face of this personal effort and sacrifice, Muslim anger around the world would abate.
Yes, it's goodbye Tony, and hello Lord Blair of Baghdad. If it's good enough for Prince Harry, it's good enough for him.
