The English, with their barmy sense of humour described the invasion by the Vikings in the year 800 as a series of laping and rooting (raping and looting).
The title of this posting is a take on the circus of April 23rd which, in other words refers to "Pimping and Whoreing". with Blair as the Ringmaster.
This much-advertised event is organised by the National Achievers Congress (NAC) under the auspices of Success Resources International (SRI). SRI is Asia's largest Seminar Company with its headquarters in Singapore. The CEO is Richard Tan. In 2003 the Singapore Government acknowledged Mr Tan's entrepreneurial savvy by awarding him the prestigious Phoenix Award - given to only one successful entrepreneur from Singapore each year.
The National Achievers Congress (NAC) started in 1992, a clone of SRI. It is "an assembly of world-class experts to help ordinary persons achieve outstanding results in a highly competitive global market. NAC started with a need to assemble world-class experts and professionals in one location to learn, discuss and advance breakthroughs in business competencies to vast audiences at a very affordable price".
In other words, a Congress for leading wealth consultants and serial entrepreneurs to share, at a price, their tricks of the trade and the rituals for worshipping Mammon. It's easy to see where Blair fits in.
Just as a matter of interest, here are the lists of Sponsors of the Event
in both Malaysia and Singapore - the proverbial Three Monkeys who see, speak and hear no Evil.
The Press Release by the NAC and SRI described MahaGuru Blair as a 'respected and admired world leader', and 'one of the best speakers in business today, offering in-depth analysis and approach to the opportunities that lie ahead'. How true. Blair is the Sifu of Opportunism!
However, there is a deafening silence, a self-imposed censorship on Blair's record as a war-monger at best and a War Criminal at worst. His and Bush's culpability in the Iraq War that killed and maimed innocent civilians and turned Iraq into rubble needs no further embellishment. They are there on record - except for the NAC and SRI.
NOT ONE WORD ON IRAQ. Not even a hint or a sniff.
It is like writing a Curriculum Vitae on Hitler without mentioning the killing of the Jews, the Gypsies,the homosexuals, and the mentally ill.
This is what I would like to communicate to Blair.
