Look, just because Blair's started quoting that bastard Hobbes' Leviathan, that's no excuse for him to crop up all over some of my favourite blogs. It was bad enough reading him the first time around. Blair has decided to adopt a policy of authoritarian populism, and is now quoting a renowned English philosopher to back it up. The small point that he's been answered pretty convincingly ever since the time of the Commonwealth seems to have eluded Our Dear Leader. I'll blame it on him being tired.
