Blair's Retirement

What will Blair do with his retirement? He will pound the lecture circuit in the footsteps of Bill Clinton and Margaret Thatcher. There are lots of people out there with more money than sense (Lots more money) who get some sort of visceral thrill from paying through the nose to be in the presence of the formerly powerful.

It's a marriage made in heaven because Tony and Cherie get a similar thrill from being in the presence of the fabulously rich.

What I don't get- what I really don't get- is how people who are as noisy about their Christianity as the Blair's are can have managed- in a lifetime of reading and hearing Scripture- to somehow overlook that text about the rich man and the camel and the eye of the needle.

William Blake put it like this...

The Vision of Christ that thou dost see
Is my Vision's Greatest Enemy...
Both read the Bible day and night,
But thou read'st black where I read white.
