Bush is “intellectually backward”, UK politician
Bush blasted by UK politician and Tony Blair can count on little Labour Party support for an Iraq war. Way to go George, I never thought a U.S. President could be ignorant enough to piss off the Brits, but you’ve managed to do it. Give you another six months and the U.S. will have no credibility left.
Gerald Kaufman, the former shadow foreign secretary, today became Labour’s highest ranking name to voice his concerns over an attack on Iraq.
Writing in the Spectator, Mr Kaufman warns that any invasion would cause “significant casualties” and Tony Blair would find it difficult having to rely on the Conservatives for the majority of his Commons support.
He writes: “Bush, himself the most intellectually backward American president of my political lifetime, is surrounded by advisers whose bellicosity is exceeded only by their political, military and diplomatic illiteracy. Pity the man who relies on Rumsfeld, Cheney and Rice for counsel”.
