Sleaze? What sleaze?

Is it just me who thinks Tony Blair has pulled a fast one by admitting he made 'a mistake' over announcing he would step down in this Parliament?

He's surely using the same 'straw man' method that he used so effectively during the 2005 General Election: make himself (and his past) the story, thereby relieving any pressure on the Labour Party (notably loans).

Some have said his answer on Australian radio was a mistake, but to me it seems like a stroke of genius, as the sleaze story hasn't been mentioned all morning, and he can't be tackled about this new 'story' because he's on the other side of the planet!
