Hurd heard – Blair’s ‘creepy’

by Stephen Tall on July 26, 2006

Dashing out of the house this morning, late, I could have sworn I heard Douglas Hurd – that über-urbane diplomat – call Tony Blair “creepy” on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme.

I’ve just listened to the interview again, online, and here is milord Hurd discussing the chances of Anglo-American leadership resolving the Middle East crisis:

The United States has been weakened, it’s not able to do it by itself, even if
it had the will to do so. And, as you say, Tony Blair – he’s rather creepy these
days, his attitude to these things, the United States.
