It’s hard to believe that the same person was UK Prime Minister and Leader of the Labour Party for a decade. Tony Blair’s record since leaving government seems to have been largely about making money. He was once a pivotal figure in the Middle East but these day’s his views are no longer relevant.

It is easy to blame President Obama’s change in US foreign policy for the political vacuum that has been created in the Middle East. But surely, former UK Prime Minister, Tony Blair played a more active role in creating the present series of crisis in the Middle East?

Also I speculate at how the “Tony Blair” brand will damage the UK Labour Party ahead of the next election?

Any thoughts?

Personally, I have always been of the view that Tony Blair was an excellent statesman and this article brought it all back. Many still criticize Tony Blair’s period in office and his personal accumulation of wealth since leaving office. However, for me Tony Blair has a brilliant communication skills and this wide ranging article is vintage Blair.

By way of comparison, image us fast forwarding ten years. Can you imagine David Cameron writing a similar article on one of the World’s greatest challenges in 2023?

Any thoughts?
