George Michael Thanks Blair For Justifying Shoot The Dog

Subscribe George Michael

British singer GEORGE MICHAEL has thanked British Prime Minister TONY BLAIR for justifying his 2002 song SHOOT THE DOG as a "word perfect protest song". The former WHAM! singer attracted controversy when he first released the song, because its accompanying video mocked Blair and his US counterpart PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH and their war on terror. In the song, Michael sang, "There's somethin' bout that Bush ain't right," and "See Tony dancing with Dubya". After a outcry in the US by Bush supporters and 9/11 families, Michael decided he would not release the song in America and went on US TV to deny the song was anti-Bush or anti-American. Four years later, Michael admits now the public's attitude to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has changed and many realise the song was not anti-American, the track is being embraced by peace campaigners. He says, "As the years go by, Mr Blair is making Shoot The Dog a word perfect protest song. For all the people who tried to laugh at the time and say I was naive... I am not naive."
