(not satire – it’s Tony Blair!)

Some people have been wondering why GQ magazine decided Tony Blair would be a suitable person to receive its annual Philanthropist of the Year award.

Well, GQ’s editor is a right-wing Conservative Party supporter who gave Boris Johnson a job on the magazine and put David Cameron on the cover.

And GQ’s owner is a right-wing Republican Party supporter who, just before the 2008 presidential election, put a cartoon of Obama dressed as a Muslim terrorist burning the US flag on one of his magazine covers – later claiming it was a joke.

So clearly, starting numerous wars, dropping bombs on sovereign nations and being a paid adviser to brutal murderous dictators must be a right-winger’s idea of philanthropy.
