Oh dear oh dear! Tony Blair has notched up another job that should help go a little further in paying his whopping Mayfair mortgage. But as if taking up the role of the world's least likely middle-east peacemaker wasn't enough, Yale University, once a university of good standing in America, has appointed him to a year-long fellowship to lead seminars on faith and globalisation. Yale's president commented:
"...it is essential that we explore how religious values can be channelled toward reconciliation rather than polarisation.
"Mr Blair has demonstrated outstanding leadership in these areas and is especially qualified to bring his perspective to bear."
It's been a long time since the launching of a disastrous and unnecessary war, that has polarised relations between the west and the middle-east, was considered outstanding leadership in the area of reconciliation.
