英タイムズ:日本発:孤立したブレアは回答無き質問の海の真ん中で沈黙を守る。英記者は「手に血が付いているか」と質問。

他にも沢山の関連英記事あり。米記事少なし。ポチはプードルに「お疲れでしょうから、畳でお休み下さい」と言ったとか。実に惨めな箱根旅行なり。しかし、アフガニスタン、パレスチナ、イラクで殺された数万、数十万人を想えば、これぐらいが何じゃ。暴力には反対だが、胸倉掴んで、背負い投げ、蹴り倒したし。

Isolated Blair stays silent amid a sea of unanswered questions
David Cracknell and Melissa Kite

THE prime minister had never looked more isolated or more hunted. Last night Tony Blair refused to answer a series of questions over the death of David Kelly, the weapons expert, but said the affair was "an absolutely terrible tragedy".


Blair, looking sombre, anxious and with a sometimes croaky voice, appeared at a news conference in Tokyo with Junichiro Koizumi, his Japanese counterpart.

After Blair had answered a few brief questions, a British journalist shouted out: "Have you got blood on your hands, prime minister?" Blair stared ahead and for almost 10 seconds did not answer or even blink. The question came at the end of a press conference that had been intended to address subjects ranging from the European Union to North Korea.

Blair appeared uneasy throughout. At one point Koizumi tried a joke. The Japanese prime minister made a passing reference to the Blairs' having to sleep on a traditional grass mattress, called a tatami. "You must be so tired," Koizumi said.

Blair, completely devoid of his usual charming grin, just said: "No, I'm fine, I'm looking forward to it."

However, Blair did answer some questions about Kelly's death. He said: "Politicians and the media alike should show some respect and restraint" before the inquiry into Kelly's death.

Blair also refused to say whether Alastair Campbell, his director of strategy, or Geoff Hoon, the defence secretary, were considering their positions.

Asked if he believed Kelly's death was in some way on his conscience, he replied: "I entirely understand why you want me to elaborate. There is going to be a full and independent inquiry. I think we should make our judgment after we get the facts."

Asked whether anyone had offered their resignation, he added: "Actually what you are trying to do is to get me into the merits and I have already said what I've said on that." After Blair had left the press conference, Downing Street officials could barely contain their anger.

In contrast to previous foreign trips, Blair was without three key advisers. Campbell, Jonathan Powell and Sally Morgan all left Blair after the Washington leg of the tour. Almost the only aide left was Godric Smith, a Downing Street official spokesman leaving in a few weeks to start a new career.

Later the prime minister was driven into the countryside to a secluded hotel -- and a night on a grass mat.
