Surely some mistake - Blair to bring peace to the Middle East ?

It is harder to imagine a more inappropriate job for Tony Blair than being Middle East Peace Envoy.

With the UK and US despise across the Arab world and anyone siding with the Americans being resented, it is difficult to understand why any nation would want to deal with an envoy supported by Britain and America anyway. But with Tony Blair, Bush's poodle in the job, it makes the job even harder.

So what next ? Kim Jong Il in charge of the World Food Programme, Ahmedinijad in charge of the International Atomic Energy Authority, Mugabe in charge of the Commission for Racial Equality and Hugo Chavez in charge of the Adam Smith Institute ?

P.S. I See Lindyloo's Muze also has a good, er sorry, bad suggestion too.
