Sisyphus Blair

Yet more on the Blair is doomed theme, Iain Martin in the WSJ:

“.. But in the end it doesn’t feel like it was any kind of victory for Tony Blair. It was a reminder that no matter how hard he tries he just can’t shake off Iraq. Here he is, still relatively young, with property and money aplenty. But it is becoming clear that no matter how far or fast he travels the decisions of 2002-03 will follow him around the globe until the day he dies. His critics won’t give up haunting and taunting him, and he looks like he knows it…..


..He had got through six hours and didn’t want to weaken at the last.

And then his evidence was over and he could go home. But it’s never really over. Iraq and the endless inquiries are turning into a kind of groundhog day for Blair. He answers the same questions the same way, nothing new emerges but the sense is that none of it, somehow, is very satisfactory. And so it will go on, and on, and on.”

  1. Hi,

    I’m looking for a photo/image of Sisyphus to include in a (non-commercial) presentation. I like the one you included in this blog post, although I’m also seeing it all over the Internet.

    As we want to be sure to give proper credit, would you mind telling me where you found the image? We’d like to locate the creator of the original work so we can get his/her permission, and/or verify that the image is in the public domain.

    Thank you in advance.
