Jimmy Carter on Blair

In an interview for the BBC Radio 4 programme Today, former US president Jimmy Carter described Tony Blair’s support for the Iraq war as a ‘major tragedy for the world’.

In the show, which was broadcast this morning, Mr Carter said that Blair’s attitude to Bush had been ‘abominable. Loyal, blind, apparently subservient.’

And he said that Tony Blair could have made a crucial difference to American political and public opinion by distancing himself during the build-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Red Squirrel Week

A red squirrel in the garden

Excited to see a red squirrel in the garden this morning. It was being chased by more than a dozen sparrows. They have made the overgrown clematis their base and I expect they saw the squirrel as a predator.

From 30th September to 8th October 2006 it’s Red Squirrel Week. This one was nine days early!

Northumberland is one of the last strongholds for the red squirrel, which has been driven out of most of England over the past 100 years by the grey squirrel.

These stills are from some video that will be up on the site in a few days as part of a longer film.
