Buzz off Blair
The newspaper coverage today of Blair in Africa is enough to make the blood boil. Why should this man be ferried round the world at taxpayers expense so he can be serenaded and feted?
The way we have developed our democratic system over the centuries is supposed to mitigate against this. Lose and election and you are out the next morning. Lose a leadership challenge and you are out the next day .
It is typical of New Labour that in their constitutional vandalism they have even manged to effect change in this area.
Meanwhile, back in the real world interest rates are set to rise, energy prices are rising again and the housing market may finally be beginning to slow.
But who cares, soon Tony will return and it will be handkerchiefs all round...
