Blair runs away

Tony 'The Tomato' Blair clearly intends to avoid both parliament and the people as the general election approaches.
On the same day he ducked out of voting in the parliamentary debate to ban foxhunting, Blair let it be known that he would not debate on television with other party leaders William Hague and Charles Kennedy during the election campaign.
His handlers clearly fear that their man cannot cope with open debate or public scrutiny. After all he inadvertently triggered the foxhunting vote by a gaffe on the David Frost TV programme and, of course, was booed off the stage when making a crass speech to the Women's Institute. As William Hague aptly put it "one man is chicken."
