    V. briefly - am tired, had 7 lessons today and now have a terrible headache: Despite all the slating he's recieved recently i still refused to see him in a negative light. Yet today - i've realised that - okay politicians lie it's too be expected - but he really has gone too far. I have no faith in him - he's definitly untrustworthy (also arrogant, it frustrates me how he didn't get any of the blame regarding the Hutton enquiry - also the fact he refuses to accept that he might be wrong - ever). As for his policies, i think they're worse than the Lib Dems. In fact sometimes with him trying to maintain credibility - you actually wonder, does he care at all about the state of this country? I can understand why party members resent him.

    good evening - two of my favourite people in one room - that is good luck - how are u feeling Alee? just got in and received the message - Bliar must go - the bloody spy!!! His policies are hapless and half baked because he has both his eyes up Bush's ass - or he wants to run for president - or he wants to rule iraq - anything but this god forsaken country

    Well, you need to express yourselves, you arty farty types not like us scientists (or social scientists)...

    He just wants to be the first president of Europe. Maybe a bad exaggeration but I think he's a creep.

    i dont mind - corey is another favourite - but i like u better cos ur a member of the opposite sex - easier to flirt with girls u see! Short - i dunno - seems to me that she is either self-promoting or being the standard bearer for truth and justice - take ur pick - but dont go down the tabloid hate route!

    Ok to deal with both of your posts and present my view on why I still support Blair.

    Waiting2smile, you bring up the Hutton Enquiry and how you think it terrible that he didn't get any of the blame? I understand that as it was widely said by the media that he would, however just because you didnt the outcome you wanted (or expected) does not mean that the outcome is wrong. If you doubt the outcome you doubt the whole judical system and should therefore doubt all forms of justice in the country.

    A politican, admit he is wrong? Well obviously that will never happen a politician does not admit he is wrong because he always does what he thinks is right! Any thing that goes wrong was never in the intended plan and would you realistically admit your mistakes (which will cost you votes) to the electorate - I think not.

    The Lib Dems have unrealistic policies in monetary terms as I have already stated. Also, taking for example there University reform which is the abolition of tutition fees which is stupid -> very high cost to maintain and will inevitably lead to the reduction in people at university which could have detrimental effects on the economies economic growth etc.
    Alongside this problem for adding up costs for their 'policies', how could we trust them with our economy? They have a very different viewpoint to Labour on the economy and Labour have proven to be effective with the economy (breaking boom-bust cycle etc)

    Labour is caring about the state of the country for the first time they are tackling key issues such as university funding, NHS, citizenship and consitutional reform. They have delivered constitutional reform and will soon have got rid of the archaic herdiatary peers in the HoL and they are pumping money into the public services BUT alongside that they are emphasising reform rather than just pumping money and expecting the system to fix itself i.e foundations hospitals.

    I think it's obvious Mr Bliar should have recieved some form of responsibility over Dr Kelly's death. And the impression i recieved from the media was that they too were expecting him as per usual to escape. It wasn't a surprise that he didn't.

    As for admitting to faults. When it's clear you're wrong, it's cowardly glossing it over.

    Too tired to argue...but your own reasons seem sound, except the fact i disagree with them all.
