Thread: Spanish Politician Labels Blair An 'imbecile' On L

    Spanish politician labels Blair an 'imbecile' on live television
    By Isambard Wilkinson in Madrid
    (Filed: 16/01/2004)

    Tony Blair has been called "a complete dickhead" by a leading Spanish politician live on television. The comment was made by Jose Bono, one of the three most powerful figures in the Socialist Party. His remarks were not intended to be heard, but were recorded by a television team while he was talking to Joaquin Almunia, a former Socialist leader.

    Mr Bono said: "Hey, and our colleague Blair? He's a complete dickhead (un gilipollas integral). He's an imbecile."

    The comments contrast with the Spanish prime minister Jose Maria Aznar's carefully cultivated friendship with Mr Blair and will embarrass the Socialists.

    The party is irritated by Mr Blair's friendship with Mr Aznar and dislikes the resulting Anglo-Spanish alliance.

    There is little question that were Spain's conservatives to lose power, the London-Madrid axis would collapse.

    Mr Bono, a staunch Catholic, is regarded as a potential leader of the Socialist Party of Spanish Workers.

    The present leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, could be dropped if Mr Aznar's centre-Right People's Party wins a predicted third successive victory in the March 14 elections. That would mirror the upheaval in the Popular Party where Mr Aznar will step down at the election and make way for his successor Mariano Rajoy.

    Mr Rajoy will visit Downing Street this week to cement the relationship with Britain.

    i wonder what he'd say about Geroge Bush

    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Oh, please...
    The Spanish Socialist party, huh?

    How far left is that on the non-U.S.-defined international spectrum?

    Honest question.

    Centre-left, since you asked nicely.

    [far left--------- centre-left ---- centre ---- centre-right ---------- far right]

    As a US reference Democrats would be centre-right, Republicans would be at a mid point between far right and centre right. Probably closer to centre right than far right though. Most other political cultures see little difference between the two US parties on the defining issues.

    Just about all EU countries are in between Centre Right and Centre Left.

    At the moment the overall politics would be slightly left of my opinion, im no expert on the politics of all the nations involved
