Blair questioned by police

Writing about web page

Tony Blair has been questioned by police in relation to the “cash for honours” probe. It was not under caution and he did not have a lawyer present. He was questioned (according to BBC News) as a witness and not as a suspect. Questioning a current prime minister in relation to a criminal investigation, however, is an unprecedented move.

The outcome of this investigation could be very interesting. I have never seen a criminal investigation in which the government is so involved.

Headline news?

Interesting news headline on the BBC breakfast program…

“Tony Blair doesn’t say when he’s going to leave office”

Wow, spectacular, someone didn’t say something..

Does anyone else find this “Will he, won’t he leave” thing a bit tiresome… Even for the Blair haters, surely they realise he has an army of Blairites ready to take over… What about Brownites? Rubbish.. they’re ideologically identical. Brown said himself he’s commited the Blairite reform of public services, and to pull off any futher radical reform, the resentment in the Labour Parliamentary party will mean he will have to (eventually at least) resort to the arrogant, top down leadership style for which Blair is so infamous.

It’s all pretty insignificant anyway, the tories will win in 2009 and they can start happily start destroying everything Labour has achieved since they came into power.

The Third Way is starting to crumble, and I’m not sure if the imprint will last.
