LONDON (Reuters) Most Britons no longer find Prime Minister Tony Blair trustworthy and nearly half think he should quit, according to a newspaper poll Sunday.
Ever watch the British Parliament on C-Span? Get this—in Great Britain the nation’s leader is actually asked difficult questions that he or she is expected to answer. This makes it more difficult for morons to get chosen. It also makes it harder to pull the wool over people’s eyes, at least indefinitely. The press there actually asks difficult questions, too, and not just of members of the loyal opposition on Meet Fleet Street. That’s right, the Prime Minister is actually expected to explain his actions. If this catches on in other English-speaking countries I know one simple fella from Midland, Texas (by way of Connecticut) who is in trouble, too.
