Tony Blair.

Tony fucking Blair.

When will he learn? When will he learn that everything he touches turns to shit?

Not today, obviously, as he’s once more spoken out against Brexit.

No thanks 

Some pundits said we shouldn’t dismiss Blair out of hand:

The problem is – the people saying we shouldn’t dismiss Blair out of hand are also people you should really just dismiss out of hand.

But what did Blair say this time?

According to one person who saw him speak, Blair opened his mouth and proceeded to emit white noise for half an hour. This seemed unlikely, but when we looked at the video, it was true. Almost like Blair’s previous actions have made it impossible to listen to him.

Give war a chance 

Maybe the horror-pricks are right, though? Maybe we should give Tony ’45 minutes to death’ Blair a chance?

We caught up with a psychologist to ask if it’s us with the problem:

Not really. Imagine if you bought a sausage roll from someone and discovered it had been purposefully stuffed with dog shit and syringes. Now imagine the baker who perpetrated this terrible snack offered you another.

Would you take a chance on it not being filled with filth and deception? Not fucking likely.

Blairxit

Brexit won by making people think the EU was bloated with out-of-touch elites who don’t care about those affected by austerity. This was easy to achieve, as it’s largely true.

But making people think we’re better off with the EU elites than the Tory ones isn’t helped by deploying more elites. Especially when said elite is Tony Blair.

Because don’t forget, Blair still thinks he ‘fixed’ Iraq. Do you really want him ‘fixing’ Britain?

We need your help to keep speaking the truth

Every story that you have come to us with; each injustice you have asked us to investigate; every campaign we have fought; each of your unheard voices we amplified; we do this for you. We are making a difference on your behalf.

Our fight is your fight. You’ve supported our collective struggle every time you gave us a like; and every time you shared our work across social media. Now we need you to support us with a monthly donation.

We have published nearly 2,000 articles and over 50 films in 2021. And we want to do this and more in 2022 but we don’t have enough money to go on at this pace. So, if you value our work and want us to continue then please join us and be part of The Canary family.

In return, you get:

Almost all of our spending goes to the people who make The Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our writers and enables us to continue to do what we do: speaking truth, powered by you. We have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media.

With your help we can continue:

* Holding political and state power to account
* Advocating for the people the system marginalises
* Being a media outlet that upholds the highest standards
* Campaigning on the issues others won’t
* Putting your lives central to everything we do

We are a drop of truth in an ocean of deceit. But we can’t do this without your support. So please, can you help us continue the fight?
