How ironic is this for Blair?

It seems Tony Blair has been presented with an honorary doctorate from Queen's University, Belfast. Read here.

How ironic is this? Blair gets the same sort of recognition that is given to any school child nowadays. He does no studying, a dead easy test, if any, and a certificate is presented to him as a reward. How very much like our current educational system.

Of course this one will be just as useless as the ones presented to the kids after Blair has finished with our educational system but unlike Blair the kids won't have people pushing money into their hands just for smiling and saying a few words. Sadly these kids will have a bit more of a struggle for the rest of their lives.

I would have hoped that with all the weapons in Northern Ireland Blair could have had a more suitable reward. Although that is probably why he didn't go in person to collect it. I can't think of any other reason for him to keep away from a free meal.
