We’re D00Med.

I’ve only just got around to reading the conversation between Blair and Bush at the G8.

Yeah. Right. Reading this transcript REALLY instils a sense of confidence into me. I really feel the world is safe in their hands. NOT. I mean…. have you read the level of intellect?

Seriously worried. If these two aren’t in charge.. Who is? And are they rimming each other in public, or am I reading it wrong? Honestly, if you wrote this in novel you’d be laughed off the planet.

Bush: Yo, Blair. How are you doing? (Yo?)

Blair: I’m just…

Bush: You’re leaving?

Blair: No, no, no not yet. On this trade thingy…[indistinct]

Bush: Yeah, I told that to the man.

Blair: Are you planning to say that here or not?

Bush: If you want me to.

Blair: Well, it’s just that if the discussion arises…

Bush: I just want some movement.

Blair: Yeah.

Bush: Yesterday we didn’t see much movement..

Blair: No, no, it may be that it’s not, it may be that it’s impossible.

Bush: I am prepared to say it.

Blair: But it’s just I think that we need to be an opposition…

Bush: Who is introducing the trade?

Blair: Angela [Merkel, the German Chancellor]

Bush: Tell her to call ‘em.

Blair: Yes

Bush: Tell her to put him on, them on the spot. Thanks for the sweater – it’s awfully thoughtful of you.

Blair: It’s a pleasure.

Bush: I know you picked it out yourself.

Blair: Oh absolutely – in fact I knitted it!!!

(laughter)

Bush: What about Kofi? [Annan] – he seems all right. I don’t like his ceasefire plan. His attitude is basically ceasefire and everything sorts out…. But I think…

Blair: Yeah, no I think the [indistinct] is really difficult. We can’t stop this unless you get this international business agreed.

Bush: Yeah.

Blair: I don’t know what you guys have talked about, but as I say I am perfectly happy to try and see what the lie of the land is, but you need that done quickly because otherwise it will spiral.

Bush: I think Condi [US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice] is going to go pretty soon.

Blair: But that’s, that’s, that’s all that matters. But if you… you see it will take some time to get that together.

Bush: Yeah, yeah.

Blair: But at least it gives people…

Bush: It’s a process, I agree. I told her your offer to…

Blair: Well… it’s only if I mean… you know. If she’s got a…, or if she needs the ground prepared as it were… Because obviously if she goes out she’s got to succeed, if it were, whereas I can go out and just talk.

Bush: You see the irony is what they need to do is get Syria, to get Hezbollah to stop doing this shit and it’s all over…

Blair: [indistinct]

Bush: [indistinct]

Blair: Dunno… Syria….

Bush: Why?

Blair: Because I think this is all part of the same thing…

Bush: (with mouth full of bread) Yeah

Blair: Look – what does he think? He thinks if Lebanon turns out fine. If you get a solution in Israel and Palestine, Iraq goes in the right way

Bush: Yeah, yeah, he is struggling.

Blair: He’s had it. And that’s what the whole thing is about. It’s the same with Iraq.

Bush: I felt like telling Kofi to call, to get on the phone to Assad and make something happen.

Blair: Yeah

Bush: [indistinct]

Blair: [indistinct]

Bush: We are not blaming the Lebanese government.

Blair: Is this…? [Blair taps the microphone in front of him and the sound is cut.]
