Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister has spoken that materialism is a threat to the planet and human identity.
That statement has been met with scorn in a few quarters as Blair has done nothing but attempt to acquire money, power and status since leaving Number 10 Downing Street.
Do as I say, not as I do is the jist of it from him.
He wants us all to sit in squalor while he travels the world staying on and in billionaires’ yachts and villas.
Since leaving Number 10; he has taken a number of high paying jobs as an advisor as well as doing speeches on the after dinner circuit. He is further being touted as a possible future President of the European Union.
In order to keep his profile raised he has joined the religious circuit as a modern day preacher when he should be sitting in a cell at The Hague on war crimes charges awaiting trial.
In a speech to the prestigious Communion and Liberation conference at Rimini in Italy; he told people of all faiths around the world that they should set their sights lower.
At the same time, ‘Preacher’ Blair was staying on Rising Sun, the five-deck yacht of American software billionaire Larry Ellison, anchored off the Sardinian coast.
Blair who converted to being a Catholic said;
"Ever since I began preparations to become a Catholic, I felt I was coming home; and this is now where my heart is, where I know I belong."
I wonder how the Catholic Church feels about a clown like this trying to hijack its faith for personal gain. Blair has set up and runs his own faith foundation as a vehicle to keep him in the public eye.
I find it ridiculous that the Catholic Church should allow someone like him to address its Communion and Liberation Conference when he has so much blood on his hands.
I see Blair’s agenda, to try and get on board EU Catholic countries to support his bid to become EU President.
In 1979, Margaret Thatcher used a quote from St Francis of Assisi before entering Downing Street as PM, then she went on to screw the country and it looks like discredited Blair is doing the same, using religion to for his own ends.
What is funny and sick at the same time is that one of the most greediest former PM’s should preach about others not making a good life for themselves while he does everything in his power to feather his own nest.
Why not use google street view to look at his £3.5 million pound house in Connaught Square, London and then ask yourself, do you believe this tripe?
