Forte's criticism of Blair lecture

There is an interesting article by Pendennis in the Observer: Tony Blair's forte is not thinking says Forte. Rocco Forte, who paid for the lectures, seems to be unimpressed by the former PM's contribution.
'I don't think Blair is a particularly deep thinker,' Forte told me at a reception thrown by Condé Nast Traveller magazine. 'I don't find him a deep man. He was always voting against his Catholic principles; for example, he voted for abortion. He constantly voted against the ideas of Catholicism
As Pendennis observes, Rocco was out of the country for the lecture
"although for a man who travels as much as he does, it would surely not have been out of the question to return."
