Vatican: Tony Blair is ‘probable future president of the European Union’

The visit of Pope Benedict XVI to the UK next year will not only invigorate his flock and shed a little holy aura on his ‘soulmate’(?) Prime Minister Cameron. It will be of immeasurable use to Tony Blair in his quest to be President of Europe.

In an interview with L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican's daily newspaper, he reveals that his new-found faith had become the driving force in his life. He said he considers Pope Benedict's belief that God is central to politics, society, economics and culture to be ‘brilliant’.

Simple things.

But the Vatican also let it slip that they believe him to be the anointed one: the heir to Charlemagne; the future President of Europe.

Mr Blair has become increasingly popular with the Vatican in recent months, and Cranmer is not entirely sure why. A packed conference in Italy gave him an ovation for his speech about the ‘universality of Catholicism’ (well, there’s a mind-blowing revelatory tautology). The Pope's newspaper has been quite effusive in a superficial kind of way, calling the former prime minister ‘a gentleman, educated, smiley, courteous in a way few know how to be’.

All the qualifications necessary for modern political discourse.

Mr Blair spoke about his conversion and how important his new faith was to him. He recalled how, when he was a child, ‘in one of her rare moments of lucidity, during an illness, my great-grandmother – who was in many ways fantastic – told me, “Do whatever you want but don't marry a Catholic”. Which is exactly what I did.’

Mr Blair’s great-grandmother’s advice is, of course, still heeded by the Monarch.

He further revealed that his conversion was ‘a path I have followed for 25 years’, assisted, he added, by a crucial private mass held by Pope John Paul II in 2003. He said: "It was an episode which really struck me." He added, “Catholicism's universality is its appeal. If you are Catholic you can go anywhere in the world and take part in mass in any country."

The last people to understand this, he complained, were British journalists, who are still unprepared for religious, let alone Catholic, politicians.

"It's a shame but that is how it is. However, I can say that for normal people, as opposed to those who speak on TV or write in newspapers, it was never a problem."

It is interesting to read that Mr Blair considers journalists to be abnormal.

Cranmer knows one or two.

Your Grace,

Blair’s attempt to become President of Europe is at least consistent with his contempt for democracy.

At a conservative estimate over 65% of legislation in this country emanates from the fascist EU.

The EU has been constructed to supersede the governance of nation-states; it is unaccountable; self-perpetuating oligarchy that sees democracy as an obstacle to be swept away.

It has a parliament, the European Parliament. It exists merely for show to fool most of the people, most of the time that it is a democratic institution.

Its most powerful body the Council of Ministers are unelected and yet slam their mailed-fists on the tables of power; its parliamentarians, who are elected, are devoid of power.

There cannot be an EU democracy – as there are no EU people (demos). But when the EU asked real people to approve of it like the French, the Dutch and the Irish – they said, ‘No!’

Undeterred, like the juggernaut in the movie by Spielberg, The Duel, the EU by-passed the French and the Dutch people smashing the fundamental principles of democracy. The juggernaut has wheeled round and confronts the brave Irish to menace them.

All around the world, men, women and children are dying in countless numbers to achieve nation-hood – and yet our prime minister, Gordon Brown, the Father of the Peoples, exchanged our sacred treasure, sovereignty, for that wretched piece of paper they call the Lisbon (Constitutional) Treaty.

@D Singh

An excellent treatise, couldn't put it much better myself.

We went to bed in a democracy, but woke up to find ourselves in a dictatorship.

Except it actually took some 40 years of...drip...drip...removal of 900 years of English heritage, dismantled piecemeal from about our ears. Those of use who voted no to the Common Market were - and still are, by the fanatical Lib Dems - as that catch-all term of euro abuse - "xenophobic" however without doubt the UK will cease to exist in any meaningful form if this latest constitution....sorry, treaty, goes through.

And the truly amazing thing is that so few people seem to care one way or the other that their nation has been taken away from them.

The one thing the eu is good at is illusion, and perpetuating the illusion of a democracy is one such. The other thing is, of course, taking our money in huge rafts, and managing to sound generous when they give a little bit of it back from time to time.

Dear Gnostic

Can you be surprised if the Vatican has lost the plot over Blair.

After all the British people were duped not once, not twice, but thrice and for at least ten years the media, pop celebs, the chatterati the bien pensants of the BBC all thought that the sun shone out of his **se and made him out to be a little tin god on wheels.

I begin to wonder whether the blairococcus is actually some sort of plague virus who infects various people at various times and causes nauseous fawning.

Sorry old chap, you have slightly misfired on this one. Tony is only using the "President" thing as a feint. He really wants to be Pope, with Cherie as first woman Cardinal heading the Congregation Of The Faith, restored as The Inquisition.

Blairococcus is as apt a description as any I've encountered. :D

I voted for him in 1997 to get rid of what I thought, at the time, to be the most corrupt government ever. It was the first (and ONLY) time I'd ever voted for Labour and it only took a few short weeks to realise I'd made a monumental mistake. I was cured instantly.

Now if we could only find a permanent cure for the political necrotising fasciitis known as the EU.

Like turning over the entirety of North America to Bill Clinton.

Whilst sympathizing with your expressed sentiments, I urge you to consider the possibility that our Canadian cousins would be highly offended by your suggestion that the entirety of North America had been passed over to Bill Clinton. Canada is a whole lot bigger than the USA in terms of land area.

i had rather hoped the papal visit would bring some cheer perhaps even some earnest seeking of jesus Christ our lord and saviour .

But to have this depressing news with the popes visit only a few months away ,is a poor meal.

I am often confused by Tony Blair on the one hand his word was exactly that , the trouble was it seems he only told us what he wanted us to know and not what we as once free peoples of the United Kingdom should know. His silence on the lisbon farce will be somthing I doubt I can forgive him for , but then there are other aspects of the age of spin that his power was based in , and the fact that ultimately he had a leftest nightmare being cooked up by 60s student socialist and was unable to do anything about it .

I can only assume he is happy with his broken social legacey , having done so much to break up natural and common sense ways of living to be "nu labourised" i dont know if he deserves his historical place.

On his last day in the commons , he was given a standing ovation , 30 months on from that , we have the biggest deficet of any developed nation , I just have a gut feeling that his roman catholic warmings were believed by those wanting his talents and to make UK aquesscence to the EU more palatable and less horrific .

I quite like our UKs way of doing things , you can only believe that Tony doesnt nor does he think anyones else opinion is worth soliciting , hardly the peoples prime minsister , now it would seem he is to be the popes Eu president , the fact that he has not backed up his words that he left us with as regards the EU is all too careerist for me .

Dear Gnostic

Cure for political necrotising fasciitis known as the EU could be a military coup for this country.

There was a rant in the Oldie in favour of this a few months ago. If memory serves it was Harry Enfield's dad.

There is a lot of good logic to this. Politicians are disgraced and considered with contempt. The Armed services are still regarded as people of integrity.

And the most significant benefit of a military coup would be the EU suspending the UK - at which point we would say 'thanks chaps - cheerio'

I notice the silver tongued false prophet waited until after he’d left nr 10 before he officially became a Catholic, but one doesn’t suddenly change on a whim, he must have been studying and practicing Catholicism long before he announced it to the world. He’s been plotting our full participation in the EU with himself as President all along whether we like it or not.

That wide grin and the seemingly sincere words that come tumbling out drew many of us in back in 97 and has no doubt blinded the Pope too. They may get along on the surface but the Pope is older and wiser and will soon see through him. That he becomes EU President, well with a little miracle and the wind in the right direction maybe not.

From the Times article:

'the pontiff will meet the Prime Minister in a series of events over three days, which it is hoped will finally consign to the past Britain’s post-Reformation legacy of anti-Catholic prejudice.'

Oh for god's sake - we gave all that up 150 years ago, the Catholics are a shunned minority now as well?

O/T Please accept my apologies, Your Grace.

While I was watching news from the UN meeting in New York I was struck by the stupidity of El Gordo's comments about reducing nuclear arms in case they fall into the hands of the wrong people. Perhaps he hasn't been paying attention lately because the "wrong" people now have the means to make their own nukes.

How stupidly Fabian: destroy energy security when the earth is cooling down and disarm yourself in the face of a threat.

I was also struck by how certain Muslim leaders seem noticeably parsimonious with the historical actualité. We have Imadinnerjacket with his holocaust denial and Gadaffi with his biased views on slavery...

I have been stating as fact, that The EU is a highly Orwellian form of the selectively sustainable, and viciously authoritarian bits of FASCISM, NAZISM, and COMMUNISM, for decades.

Did many of them listen?.....Did they F... . Which is not wholly surprising, human beings are in general very open to over-trusting optimistic forms of wishful thinking regarding those that have always effectively FARMED them.

Western people have a particular problem with this complacent, and historically unjustified form of establishment induced conditioning.

Removing individual property rights, ( along with the faux national democracy, and constitution that was supposed to protect them,) is perfectly consistent with the perpetuation of this nations/WORLDS long existence, Neo-Feudal or corporatist system of top-down universal enslavement.

History teaches us that the only times our own establishment seemed to care, were when it was very much in the establishments own interests to want to appear to do so. Like for example, if they hurt themselves, while falling over just one too many dead babies in the streets. The smell of human suffering got simply too great for them to think straight, Or they had finally got through slaughtering a few millions of us in a WW or two, or needed us to do so in the not too distant future.

Their interests are clearly no longer, our interests, which is the real reason for all of the lies, and manipulation.

Therefore, as much as humanly possible, they are not going to tell us the sheople what they are indeed doing, and more importantly WHY, they are doing it.

The EU is simply a method by which our own ruling elites, can quite literally or not, come in for the kill, at any time of their choosing, and there will be absolutely NOTHING we can do about it. Which will without doubt, and sooner then many may have hoped, include the right to refuse to work.

This may or may not come down to something similar to either WW1,WW2, Hiroshima, The Great Depression, Nazi occupation, or all of that little list of pathologically, and wholly establishment based insanity, rolled into one. BUT IT MIGHT, and there will still be absolutely NOTHING we can do about any of it.

What is more, and worse, I do not any more believe that either the British, American or European people have the intelligence, willpower, courage, organization, imagination, and certainly not the common unity, or empathy to do any thing about anything, even if they still had the constitutional right to do so. It seems the establishment, are not taking any chances, whatever I personally believe.

We can, I hope now very clearly understand how Hitler managed to so easily persuade the otherwise highly intelligent, patriotic, and moralistic citizens of 1930's Germany and Austria, to commit what was very much planned to ultimately be, self-inflicted, financial, moral, and extremely murderous form of collective national SUICIDE.

Of course very little of all this could have ever been achieved without a conspiracy between the respective states controlled media, multi-national conglomerates, the central banking system, The RCC, and the UN/LofN.

But it did happen, using a conspiracy between them ALL, and it is happening again, therefore it is clear that the exact same types of people, which were behind the last secret deal, are behind this one. How indeed could it be any other way?

Secret deals, and all of the inevitable lies and manipulation that go with them, are how things have been done in the past, especially in the past modern world. These deals rarely, if ever involve any elected or even electable individuals.

Please try to understand Tony Blair is without doubt less in charge of his own destiny then either myself, or yourself. He sold himself to the Devils worst half, a while back, shortly before he sold us down the river. While, as we now know, Gordon Brown made perfectly sure that he had secretly removed all of the life rafts, and paddles.

The only reason Blair has become catholic is for the absolute belief in forgiveness. When you have so much to feel guilty for, what do you do? Where do you go? Forget Iraq, it's the "little" things too...Tanzania, in the news recently, for example. The poor man's hands will never be dry of the blood dripping from them. To be forgiven though requires repentance. I await the list but in the meantime say, Father forgive him, for he hasn't got a clue!
