Thought for a Friday

Tony Bliar speaking about Egypt on the Today programme on Radio 4 this morning.

Yes we want change but it must be ordered and stable, we have got to keep people together. You have got to take account of the fact that when you unleash this process of reform, unless you are going to be very, very careful about how it's done and how it's staged, then you run risks as well.  If you open up a vacuum anything can happen.

Whose words?

Tony Bliar.

Yes Tony Bliar.

Three words come to my mind.

Pot, kettle and black.

Two thoughts come to mine:
"Selective amnesia".
"These idiots believe my twaddle."

Cait, thank you for this post.

Yes, I'm sure that we will be reading/hearing lots of quotes over this weekend, and beyond, that will challenge our fresh and recent memories.
