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

Bush:  If you want me to.

One Response to “Yo, Blair !”

  1. sero Says:


    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 what 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 myself.

    Bush: What about Kofi? [inaudible] His attitude to ceasefire and everything else … happens.

    Blair: Yeah, no I think the [inaudible] 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 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 … thing is what they need to do is to get Syria, to get Hizbullah to stop doing this shit and it’s over.

    Blair: Syria.

    Bush: Why?

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

    Bush: Yeah.

    Blair: What does he think? He thinks if Lebanon turns out fine, if we get a solution in Israel and Palestine, Iraq goes in the right way …

    Bush: Yeah, yeah, he is sweet.

    Blair: He is honey. 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 Bashad and make something happen.

    Blair: Yeah.

    Bush: We are not blaming the Lebanese government.

    Blair: Is this…? (at this point Blair taps the microphone in front of him and the sound is cut.)
