Tony Blair is a fitting icon for the 21st century

Yesterday I reported that the media were applauding news of a new blood test which will promote the genocide of the disabled.

How very appropriate, then, that we should learn in today's news that Tony Blair (pictured), the former British prime minister, who has devoted so much of his political career to building the culture of death in Britain and overseas, has been named by the US National Constitution Centre as the winner of its prestigious Liberty Medal for 2010.

After all, it was undoubtedly in the name of "liberty":
  • that Tony Blair voted in 1990 for abortion up to birth three times during Parliamentary debates on what became the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 - a provision which applies specifically to disabled babies
  • that he personally championed destructive experiments on human embryos
  • that his government enacted legislation which allows, and in certain circumstances requires, doctors to starve and dehydrate to death vulnerable patients
- all of them policies and legislation he has refused to repudiate since becoming a Catholic.

It's also unquestionably in the name of "liberty" that Tony Blair, whilst in Parliament supported laws, policies and practices which mean that additional rules now apply  bringing down the force of the law upon:
What a fitting icon Tony Blair is for the age in which we live! It's in this context that we should congratulate him for winning the Liberty Medal for 2010.
