I was amused to read the following in this morning's Daily Telegraph. Michael Sandle, an RA and a distinguished sculptor, said in The Oldie, about Tony Blair: "I knew the moment he was elected leader of the Labour Party that this was a most dangerous man - no sense of history, no culture, a complete philistine, but, most of all, because he was mixing up politics and faith. And now he's peddling religious platitudes through his faith foundation. He uses religion as an air-freshener to cover the stench of the rotting flesh he has caused. As for being Middle East peace envoy, it's like employing King Herod to be a child-minder." I couldn't agree more!
