Radiohead star removes Blair comments

Fan conspiracies fly as to the reason why

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has taken down his post that called for Tony Blair’s resignation.

The Radiohead singer had posted on the band’s official website about Blair’s stance in the current political climate.

It has prompted fans on a Radiohead fan website to speculate widely on why the post was removed.

Some fans think he could have been pressured into it, while others believe he did it himself having re-read his comments.

Yorke posted: “I’ve had enough of this. Our government sitting on the fence with the US while World War 3 appears to be breaking out in Lebanon and Northern Israel.”

Yorke continued: “We must throw Tony Blair out of office NOW. He does not represent the views of British people. He does not represent the views of his foreign office and officials. He does not even represent the views of those in his cabinet. He cares too much about his relationship with Bush and Murdoch. This man is not fit to be our Prime Minister.”
