“I think most people who have dealt with me, think I’m a pretty straight sort of guy, and I am.” (Tony Blair, BBC “On the Record”, 16th November 1997.) 

On 30th November last year, Michael Gove, currently UK Environment Minister, pretty well unloved by swathes of the population whatever Ministry he heads, declared, at the post Chilcot Inquiry debate in Parliament regarding Tony Blair’s role in dragging the UK in to a monumental tragedy for which history will not forgive:

I think the title of this piece should be “US, UK, Saudi, Israel and ISIS ‘axis of evil’ seeking to maintain a ruined Mideast incapable of rounding on Israel.

And don’t forget ISIS have been selling oil on the Turkish black market under Erdogans nose for the duration of Syria’s civil war – the money somehow getting into the worlds financial system and into ISIS coffers to finance ‘Caliphate”s destruction of civilisation.

But what the hell do I know.

The real axis of evil are the US, the UK,Saudi Arabia and Israel,who are plotting to destroy their opponents in the Middle East, says Rodney Shakespeare.

Britain, America, Saudi Arabia and Israel form an “axis of evil” that seeks to destroy Middle Eastern countries like Syria, says a British scholar, citing expansion of Israel and promotion of Saudi Wahhabism as the alliance’s main objectives.

Dr. Rodney Shakespeare, a university professor in London, made the remarks while discussing Britain’s policy on Syria.
