I don't think I'm telling you anything you don't already know, but John Howard is A Bit Crap. And that's bending over backwards to be fair.

However, it's not like he's an intellectual pygmie surrounded by loftier fellows. The truth is, politicians in Australia get me down.

(And now is neither the time nor the place to get started on the various defects of the Leader Of The Free World).

So perhaps I shouldn't be so surprised when my heart gives a girlish leap whenever Tony Blair appears on TV.

To an ever-widening circle of my peers, this is a disgusting new development. After all, Blair is one third of that unholy triumvirate that had the appalling temerity to rid the world of a genocidal maniac.

Seriously though, I've voted for Blair twice and I certainly would do so again.

This article says it all and says it better than I could. Yes I know it's Hitchens again. Sue me.
