Any name but Blair

I pity anyone whose surname is Blair these days. If it isn't the new Mr. Sleaze, PM Tony Blair (the man who promises peerages in return for "loans" to help win elections - and this is supposed to be a democracy!) then it's Ian Blair, the Metropolitan Police Commisioner. He appears to keep his foot in his mouth and yet is in line for a £34,000 bonus on top of his £228,000 salary! Wow, I'd be happy to earn that sort of money and get away with continually making stupid judgments! Clearly these days it pays to be a public servant (except the last thing these people think they are is a public servant!)

Enough already.
