I watched Ghost Writer today and found it quite naïve

To assume that someone like Tony Blair acted the way he did during the Iraq war because he was a CIA agent is being really naïve as old Tony had nothing but £££ and $$$ signs in his eyes and did not require the CIA indoctrination.

Well I don't think it's that simple either, I think theres probably lots of reasons. The Money obsession is, I'm sure more a figment of the right wing press.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Nevertheless, given the amount of sanctimonious nonsense flying around that Cherie was much more left wing than Tony, I'm quite sure a lot of people will enjoy the suggestion that she was a CIA asset.
