Blair’s Drama

leave a comment »

Tony Blair’s descent from Power has all the elements of pantomime.

Will he do it? “oh, yes he will”, “oh, no he won’t” and so on.

Finally, we are told that in some seven weeks he’ll step down.

The whole process has been dragging on for months and Tony Blair’s desire to cling to power is phenomenal.

If I remember correctly Harold Wilson resigned one day and they were sorting out his successor the next, but Tony Blair’s flair for drama continues.

The next seven weeks will probably be a time of negotiation and dealmaking with Gordon Brown.

Blair will probably ascend to the House of Lords and receive some immunity from prosecution over the Peerages scandal.
