|He may have been big on "Big Government" in his country & extremly disliked for it, perhaps quite rightly. He was hated with a passion by many within his country for siding with us in going into Iraq, though i am grateful he stood with us. He was certainly derided by many in the country & out of it, as being President Bush's poodle or lap-dog, which i think is absolutely ludicrous. Oh yeah, did i mention he was also disliked for being a christian? Yup, he is a christian. But, that is neither here nor there in the scheme of things that are yet too come!
His domestic socialist leaning's being what they are & opposite of what i am, need not stand in the way of gauging the worth of the man's international politics & what it has meant to me all the way here in my tiny & quite humble abode here in N. Texas. What i will always appreciate about the man himself, will not be because he went against the grain of what others thought of him, though i do find that incredibly admirable in itself. No... what i will always appreciate about him is that he saw in the US as a friend in need & stood with us... come what may! To go behind the headlines, many british subjects might be surprised too learn that instead of being dictated too by the US, he had actually worked with us in this fight against this new nihlistic scourge of terrorism that knows no reason, except it's own rightness & superiority in it's own cause!
The average british person on the street may be glad too see him go, but as for me and my concern for trans-alantic relations betweens the US and the UK, i fear it is about to take a nose dive for the extreme worse with next PM, all because of misperceptions that are still being printed in the press about us Americans!
It need not be that way. But such is the decay of reason in today's age, any other outcome would be incredibly surprising too me!
Can anyone across the pond prove me wrong, and give me cause for cheer?
