This a brilliant political sketch in Politico, describing a former prime minister floundering in a climate of loathing and derision.
Personally, I remember well when Blair became prime minister, with a landslide majority. Being conservative in my political views, I had not voted for Blair. But I remember thinking that with such a commanding majority, Blair was in a position to do much for the UK. Many voters had looked to Blair for a better, fairer and more equal society in the UK.
Blair’s history in office is well documented – he relished in the glamor of the world stage. When Blair resigned, he was given a carefully crafted Middle Eastern role; History will again be clear on what Blair did for the Middle East. In more recent years, Blair has increased his personal wealth enormously, often associating with repressive political regimes.
