This G8 had better be good
Tony Blair’s got twenty-one days until he moves home and finds himself relatively unemployed. The removal vans have already arrived. But you have to wonder why it’s only the furniture that’s moving out today, and not the owners too.
Blair was supposed to go on a six-week legacy tour, saving the world and reminding us how much he’s achieved since 1997.
So what’s he managed to do?
- Helped BP find some business in Libya
- Pissed off the Russians
- Delayed the cash-for-honours investigation a bit longer
- Er… and that’s it.
So this week’s G8 meeting had better be good. Nothing short of a deal with the United States on climate change would be enough to have made this six-week holiday worthwhile.
