So American business now gets a regular voice and seat at the table of the UK Treasury, helping to guide us best in what's good for them. Don't think I like it at all really. :Sad:

What the f@ck has Bliar actually gained for us through all his bending over and offering our arses up to Dubya and his cronies? Don't seem like much really, but funnily enough they seem to be getting it all.

I guess its coz the Parliamentary parties aint really in control of this country (or for that matter quite a few of Amerika's so called close allies) so it doesnt matter if he gets shafted along the way

Well he helped the US get a credit rating of about $2,200,000,000,000 which is how much extra they owe the rest of the world since wee Georgie took over. So he might be able to get us a loan ...

I don't care if Bliar gets shafted along the way, strike that, I would care and I'd like to see it happen. It's more about the way that he's shafting us, by allowing this to happen in the first place.

FFS the guy has just set himself up as a 'consultancy' business, read lobbyist, for American business and our chancellor Gordon Brownose (with Bliars permission or on his orders, I'd love to know which) jumps up and gives him an unpaid 'advisory'seat on our Treasury. Surely there's likely to be huge conflicts of interest here, sorry, I meant to say huge brown envelopes passing. They made such a deal of getting rid of lobbyists from the corridors of power in this country, but then they invite them in and give them a seat if they're from our strategic partner.

Makes me want to be sick!
