As a follow-up to yesterday's post on the Tony Blair book tour for A Journey, here's a bit of news from The Sun. It now appears that the twit protestors will follow Mr. Blair from bookstore to bookstore as he attempts to sign copies of his memoir for those who want to add signed copies to their libraries. Blair, showing what I think is a proper level of concern for the safety of the general public and the amount of money being wasted on extra police security, has decided to cancel his London appearances.
I imagine this means the end of the tour, period, unless Blair wants to eventually test the waters in other countries.
Thanks, though, for the publicity, twit protestors. I had not planned on buying a copy of the book before this happened, but I will be buying one now. And I doubt that I am the only one feeling this way. The proceeds go to a worthy cause and you should be ashamed of yourselves for trying to stop the sale of the book to those who admire the man - or to those just curious to hear what he has to say. Shame on you.
(This one is filed under the "Opinion" category, obviously - as was yesterday's post.)
