Nutter Blair

In the context of the Crusade against Terror being confused with a War on Islam, Tony may have been right to keep his religious views secret. He didn’t do God. (But they are great friends).

Tony Blair avoided talking about his religious views while in office for fear of being labelled “a nutter”, the former prime minister has revealed.

In an interview for BBC One’s The Blair Years, he said that his faith had been “hugely important” to his premiership.

His ex-spokesman Alastair Campbell once told reporters: “We don’t do God.”

Mr Campbell has now acknowledged to the programme that his former boss “does do God in quite a big way”, but that both men feared the public would be wary.

Is saying “We don’t do God” as bad as denying Christ three times before the cock crows?
