Well, it's getting a bit vague in my memory now but if you can recall our discussion a few years ago over Iraq it went along the lines of my blaming Blair and you pointing out that a mad person can't be held responsible for his actions. grin It was subsequently revealed by Dr Owen who was a a former foreign secretary within Blair's inner circle but who happened also to be a psychiatrist that during a series of foreign policy meetings he had conducted a psychoanalysis of Blair and concluded that he was in fact mad. So he wrote a book about that with the message that mad persons rising to positions of power or influence pose a serious threat to the survival of democracy as a political system and named certain other politicians who exhibited the same symptoms of hubris syndrome that he had seen in Blair. crazy
