I'd Watch Tony Blair Being Executed With G8 Pleasure"

Recommended Posts

A fortune could be made from selling tickets. Note to entrepreneurs down on their uppers: a 2 for 1 deal throwing in Gordon for free could be very popular.

Stephen Frears, the director of the Oscar-winning film The Queen, has said that he would watch "with great pleasure" if Tony Blair were publicly executed.

He said that the Prime Minister could regain the public's affection if he said that Mr Blair should be killed.

"If Gordon Brown suggested Tony Blair be publicly executed, he would be popular in Britain overnight," Frears told a German entertainment website.

Asked "Would you go and watch?", Frears replied: "With great pleasure. But closed eyes."

In another interview during the same promotional tour, he added: "All the people in Britain wish for at the moment is Tony Blair's head. Nothing else matters.

"If Gordon Brown would give them Blair's head, he could remain as Prime Minister: just chop it off and put it on a spike. Like in old times."

The director said that the Labour government was a "catastrophe". However, he said that Mr Brown was a "tragic hero".

"Tony Blair wasn’t that, he was simply dreadful," he said.

It's a nice idea, but he's wrong to suggest it's all people want. He's also wrong to call Brown a tragic hero. Brown has had plenty of opportunity to distance himself from Blair's works.
