Farewell to Tony Blair

As of 1:40pm or therabouts Tony Blair is no longer prime minister. I'm going to miss his speeches, his performances and PMQs and more generally the way he always managed to speak with a kind of passion that always seemed to get my attention.

The last 10 years have had their ups and downs, but there have been many things to shout about, the minimum wage, tax credits, childcare, low unempolyment as well as investment in the country's schools and hospitals. Some people see no difference between the parties, but I'm sure may of the good things that the Labour government brought along would not have happened without it. Labour has been able to bring about a lot of good things in the last 10 years and for that it has Tony Blair to thank.

Farewell Tony, I'm going to miss you.

I would just like to say....

That the "Race, class, and candidate selection" debate on Bloggers 4 Labour is really good. Very much worth a read and a couple of pennies contribution.
