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?

At a glance, Kazakhstan had the lowest featured youth unemployment. Does this mean that austerity focussed European politicians expect the youth of Spain, Greece and Italy to migrate to Kazakhstan?

Spain now has youth unemployment within a whisker of 50%.
