The latest fighting in Gaza has left 109 people dead and left me mystified.
I thought Tony Blair's new job was to bring peace to the Middle East? Yet I can find no mention of him in any newspaper reports. Nor has he popped up on the television news.
I do hope he's all right.
Maybe he's on sabbatical in order to start work on his memoirs. Or he could be in Brussels, lobbying to become the President of the EU. It's obviously unthinkable that new conflict would erupt in the Middle East if Tony the Peacemaker were in the region.
