We are entering into the final period of Tony Blairâ€™s crumbling premiership, he’s had a long time in power and faces his last days drowning in bad polls.
That said, to win three elections at the head of a party previously seen as unelectable is quite an achievement; Blair has his place in history. It may not come in quite the form he may wish but he will be long remembered whether we like it or not. Predictably there will be a scramble to influence/shape the character of that historical record…
So, ten years of ‘Blairism’, a huge amount of controversy (enough scandals to beat even the last days of the Major Tory government) and â€˜radicalâ€™ decision making but to what end?
What are your impressions of his time in power, how have things changed in this country, for the better or worse? Are you glad to see the back of him or sad to see him go?
