Separated at birth?

Another resounding defense of liberty at Yale -- not --  this time from Tony Blair, another world-stage actor at liberty and with no appreciation for liberty.

From the today's -- 9/11's -- Yale Daily News:


Q: I wanted to ask you about the cartoon controversy at Yale. How would you have approached that matter and is that an example of the sort of ails of globalization?
A: It’s certainly an example — I mean, the whole fury is an example of how it’s important to get a better and easier way of having a dialogue about things of religious sensitivity for sure.

Oh, I seeeeee. Mum's the word then, is it?

But I mean, I was heavily involved at this, I was Prime Minister at the time all this broke, and obviously it was condemned very strongly, the violence that surrounded it, but I really think from Yale’s perspective it made the right decision. Because this is not a piece of original research that Yale has suppressed. That would obviously be a completely different issue.

Oh, completely, Tony, old bean. I mean, what ho?

The question is, does it reignite a controversy that has already been there or not.

Oh, profound, old thing. Mustn't reignite a controverry that has already been there -- and done that, what?



I think it was an entirely responsible and sensible thing that they did.
