21-07-2001 17:09

Speaking on BBC radio Tony Blair, owner of many major UK media sources seemed to turn his anger on it's head, "It's their (the media's) fault, they're turning the world upside down, all the focus is on the protests, we don't want to meet like this locked away but would prefer to be in the taverna down the road talking to the people".

Blair "when there is violent protest people can get hurt."

21-07-2001 06:51

As the summit began the world's leaders professed their determination not to be intimidated but to carry on meeting. Mr Blair insisted that "the issues we are discussing are, in fact, the very issues that some of those people say they are protesting about". But that was before the news arrived of the death, after which the Prime Minister's spokesman adopted a different tone, arguing that it is "always a source of regret if anyone loses their life. We have always defended people's right to legitimate and peaceful protest, but when there is violent protest people can get hurt."

Blair, "Please stop stealing our media attention"

21-07-2001 06:16
