The Madness of Tony Blair

Boris Johnson wisely tells Tony Blair to "put a sock in it".

Unwisely he then refers to TB as "mad".

I'm not sure he is suffering from any mental illness. The grimace and weird eyes are surely down to the strain of trying to persuade himself that what comes out of his self-justifying mouth has any relationship to the truth. History is your judge, Tony, you told us. I think you need a better lawyer.

But it's cheap and wrong to call him "mad". Mental illness is an illness and shouldn't be used as an insult Also it's an unfair comparison. Unlike Tony Blair, most sufferers from mental illness are no danger to anybody else. Tony Blair is, simply, self-obsessed and wrong.
