I've just finished watching the British satire The Trial of Tony Blair on ABC television. Set in 2010, and based on the idea of Blair being brought to justice on a charge of war crimes after standing down as prime minister, it was first screened on Britain's Channel 4 on 15 January 2007. That's right, over 2 bloody years ago! Yet everything for a reason, I suppose. You see, with Gaza currently under Israeli bombardment, I was struck by the amazing synchronicity of these lines:-
Cherie: We're hated by 250 million Arabs.
Tony : At least we're not being bombed by the Israelis!
