There Is No Age to Stand Up Posted on December 11, 2010 by Hisham How old is 15 really? I wonder how this young boy will end up: Tony Blair or Tony Benn? (via Boing Boing) Share this:TweetShare on TumblrEmailPrintLike this:Like Loading... Related
Blair was quite left-wing when he joined the party (he admired Foot, Tribune left)it looks so odd now.
I hope the young lad will be somewhere close to Tony Benn in terms of intellectual depth and decency.
Oh you never know my friend. Once your bank account starts fattening up, conservatism speaks sense to you. Cynical, I know.
Then Dear God, don’t ever let my bank account fill up. I’m sure my penchant for good wine will prevent that from happening…
@Hisham: not cynical at all. Plenty of evidence to substantiate that. I’ve finished A. Rawnsley’s book on new labour 3 weeks ago, believe me I never thought the Blair household would be so ‘Chav’ in their relationship to money!
@Jill: enjoying the fine things in life is not strictly in contradiction with remaining faithful to one’s opinion, is it?
