Many people are discomfited by the thought of Tony Blair’s Faith Foundation working in schools. It smacks of religious propaganda, and is tied to the name of a prime minister remembered for leading the country into a bloody and controversial war.
Even some of those in the Foundation’s unlabelled offices (“we have to be careful about security”) near the American Embassy in London admit privately that the name can be a hindrance, giving people the wrong idea about what they are doing. They emphasise repeatedly that, although Tony Blair is a Catholic convert, the Foundation’s aim is to bring young people “of every faith, and of none” together to generate tolerance and understanding.
Oh Anthony, not only are they so aware of your enduring unpopularity the offices are ‘unlabelled‘, but they are near the US embassy, poodle to the last.
And to top it all, he is grooming kids in the hope they won’t be aware of his reputation and…well he’s a catholic now, so is he starting to have nightmares about the fiery eternity that awaits him?
