No. He spins the revolver again and puts it to the country's head. Mr. Blair has decided that the focus of his newly won new term will be to address poverty in Africa.
Britain is a country that doesn't know capitalism from a buttered scone, so it's not likely that he will stumble into an actual solution. Instead, he'll be doing more of the same thing that got both Africa and the rest of Europe into such dire straits: billions of aid and effectively unconditional debt relief. All this will accomplish, aside from driving his own economy further into the toilet, is to perpetuate and magnify the misery in Africa, while funding, among other things, the Islamic threat that is already descending on all of Europe like a 21st century iron curtain.
If Blair really wants to help Africa, there's a simple and cost-effective solution. In recognition of the fact that all of this debt incurred on that miserable continent is not owed by the people, but by the various petty dictators who have milked both their own people and the industiralized nations for decades, he should offer to forgive debts to any country that meets a few simple condtions. First, they overthrow their petty dictators, and maybe execute them for their crimes, and Second, they replace their dictatorships with free-market economies.
The tree of liberty in Africa is a withered, rotted hulk. If there's any life left in it, it needs something other than Blair's fertilizer to make it grow.
