Tony giving it up!

#1
So what's the general feel for Mr. Blair giving his position as our great leader, up??

LONDON — Prime Minister Tony Blair promised Thursday to resign within a year, hoping to appease critics in his governing Labour Party who are calling for his resignation by revealing a time frame.

"I would have preferred to do this in my own way," Blair said. He refused to set a specific departure date, but said the annual Labour Party conference this month would be his last. Next year's conference is scheduled for September 2007.

I despise the Grinning Jackanapes, and dearly want him to go.
But who do you want to replace him? I cannot see blue water between him and Cameron, and as for Brown, well!

Blair -bashing, like US bashing, is becoming somewhat of a fashion at the moment.

I don't vote labour - never had any incling to. I don't particularly like Mr Blair's style - never have done. But what has he done to get everyone so "anti" that he hasn't been doing since he got in power?

The Tony Blair of the '90s seems very similar to the Tony Blair of the present.

"D'ya hear thar! The last band-wagon is leaving from platform 2!"

Nothing different, however, the lies keep getting bigger!

In the beginning, there was no objective evidence on which to judge his performance:

- when he said "Education, education, education" we took him at his word. Today, exam perfomance is improving, yet employers claim that our young can't read, can't write and are unemployable while the universities are offering courses to allow people to get up the required standard (i.e. the standard that used to be A Level a few years ago).

- when he said "The NHS is our priority" we took him at his word. Today we hear about military personnel from Iraq & Afghanistan being treated in mixed sex and age wards desite a promise of military wards; we hear of hospitals being threatened with closure despite more money being spent on health, of drugs not being available, of going on waiting lists for a waiting list and so on.

- when he said Joined Up Government, we took them at his word. Today we know this is pure spin, unadulterated by reality!

- when TB said no more sleaze, we took him at his word. Let's see, Prescott, Blunkett, Mandellson (twice), Hewitt, Cherie Blair and so on. They've completely demolished the electorate's trust in the whole political system by their black and white legalistic approach to interpreting what constitutes misconduct and acceptable behaviour.

Agreed, however we've now got the evidence on which to judge him.

It was quoted only a crisis would save him!!!!!

And he has the blessing of his master across the pond.

Where is the next crisis do you think IRAQ or North Korea.

Personally I agree nothing has changed since he was first elected only that we as a nation are at war on two fronts.

As a young man he made a bold decision to get married. Looking at his choice of wife makes me think that if he can make decisions like that he should not be allowed to make major decisions for the nation
