Tony Blair attacked at book signing
The man known as Bush's Poodle, Tony Blair wrote a book. Apparently he excused his warmongering and lying his country into war which didn't sit well with the anti-war crowd in the UK. He thought that having a book signing in Ireland would be an easy gig on account of his work in bringing peace to that island. He was wrong.
Violent skirmishes broke out between protesters and police at the first public signing for Tony Blair's memoirs, with shoes and eggs hurled at the former prime minister.If you read the whole thing, you'll see it was quite a melee. A lot of people laughing at this on the internets this morning. Me, I never find violence funny, even if it's deserved, but it's good to see the warmongers called to account in the court of public opinion anyway.
