Blair will squirm out of this one… again

Tefal Tony is taking a lot of criticism for his rebate compromise to the EU, but I’m certain he’s going to squirm out of this one as well.

I don’t think what the UK is doing is wrong. The problem is that this compromise was made as part of a deal with the King of Squirm, Jacques Chiraq. France must review their farm subsidy system – with an idea of ending it – to keep their part of the deal. And Tony Blair is naive to simply trust Chiraq. Anyone knows you really shouldn’t trust Chiraq.

By the way: the Tefal in Tefal Tony comes from the perception that nothing sticks to Tony. I think this caricature by Riber shows Blair in the way that we’ve all come to know and love.
