Rea Hits Out At Blair

British rocker CHRIS REA has launched a scathing attack on former British Prime Minister TONY BLAIR - branding him a "bastard murderer".
Blair - who left office last year (07) after 10 years as U.K. leader - has long expressed his admiration for Rhea, confessing to being a genuine fan of his work.
But Rhea insists the feeling is not mutual as he didn't agree with many of the politician's policies.
He says, "(He is a) bastard murderer. I hate him. He talks about all this international s**t while our country (Britain) has children who are living on the poverty line and battered women with nowhere to run. Can't we deal with our own backyard before we go to Africa?
"It makes me froth at the mouth. It slices me up."
