Why I really like Tony Blair

Clearly, the recent rejection by the French people of the EU constitution wasn't sufficient to humble the insufferable Jacques Chirac. So, he goes as normal and says something stupid:

And this is why I like Tony Blair:
But Mr Blair made what appeared to be a reference to Mr Chirac's outburst when asked if Gleneagles would be an anticlimax after Singapore.

"I won't say the G8 summit would be an anticlimax to it because that would be undiplomatic and I know when I go there I will be in the presence of very diplomatic people," he said.
