Goodbye, Mr Blair… from some yokels.

Today was Tony Blair’s last day as Prime Minister. Good or bad, he’s had an eventful time at the top. It was with some amusement that The Ranger saw this remarkable scarecrow erected in a field on the Isle of Wight today:

One has to wonder, was it intended as a farewell, or just a very late attempt to influence debate? After such careful consideration of the political nuances of their message, had the authors been sitting on this for a decade, thinking “Oooh, we’ll put up that old scarecrow we made soon, that’ll be a laugh”? Then someone comes rushing round shouting “He’s going today! Get that scarecrow out quick before it’s too late!”… Still, it won’t be Tony we need to worry about now. What will Mr Brown have in store for the countryside, the environment, and for rangers everywhere? No doubt we’ll soon see.

    I continue to be impressed by you Brits 🙂 If someone put up a scarecrow of Bush here, they would be tracked down and tossed into Gitmo.

    Making Blair Middle East envoy is a bit like electing King Herod Chairman of the PTA…
