Former British PM heckled in Maine college speech
WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — A handful of protesters briefly interrupted a Maine college graduation speech by British Prime Minister Tony Blair calling for world unity.
Blair addressed more than 400 Colby College graduates and their guests Sunday morning at the school’s 191st commencement in Waterville.
Police say the protesters shouted phrases such as “warmonger” and “war criminal” during Blair’s speech. One person was arrested.
I fail to see any real ideological difference between the speaker and the people protesting him.
