/ Tony Blair on Newsnight
the latter is accurate enough. For the former I guess it depends whether a imperfect attempt at controlling international relations is better than nothing.
I have nothing but contempt for that person I'm afraid grrrrrrrrr ! Blair and morally correct don't seem to fit together well to me , I better stop now before I get carried away .
clearly you can attack/invade whether it's morally correct or not - that's been going on for hundreds of years and the existence of the UN hasn't changed it. whether countries which choose to invade/attack without a reasonable consensus (which a UN resolution might be seen to validate) can always claim to be acting in a morally correct way is probably another matter.
Thread juxto right now sums it up beautifully:
"People you know would be annoying. Shameless Tony Blair on Newsnight."
Num Num always takes the big broad flexible outlook when considering morals. For example: Is a blow job considered as infidelity? Num Num, in general feels probably not, unless it's Hugh Grant or someone like that, then of course, it is.
Well, he's right about that. If the UN backs the Nazis, I'm not toeing the UN line. The problem with the invasion of Iraq was not so much that Blair ignored the UN; it was that invading Iraq was obviously a stupid thing to do.
That's pretty much how it works isn't it (with some adjustments for society giving greater weight to some opinions than others)?

That must leave a bad taste in your mouth.
do you consider the tories recent decisions in the same light?

Static thinks that talking about yourself in the 3rd person shows a distorted idea of your own importance.
And how do you work that one out?

The lemming isin two minds over the issue

Some of them, Gove and IDS are I think cut from the same cloth as TB. Crusaders and evangelists.
That isn't a good thing, btw
Probably not but I was meaning as a group society decides on morals vaguely democratically. E.g. changing attitudes to homosexuality.
within that particular moral code, yes.
Yes - they were even sent to prison etc.
how much are you offering?
