    I think he's coming to the end of his career (sorry if that spoils the surprise for those that don't follow the news) and he'll be gone before the next general election, so love him or loathe him he's history, and there isn't a lot anyone can do about him, either to support him, or get rid of him.
    It makes him yesterdays news.
    Attacking Blair is like having a fight against a 45 year old boxer, he might have been something in his day, but now it's just like bullying someone.
    The real politicains of interest are the ones who could be the next prime minister, either Cameron, or whoever replaces Blair in the labour party.

    Tbh I can't put my finger on why but I do like him, despite him being a socialist. I like his manner, his attitude, his ability to keep going despite all the stick he's been given. Most would have given up by now.

    He's been coming to the end of his career for several years according to the news. Unfortunately, he's like a post nuclear war cockroach who I fear will live and rule over the land for EVER.

    Gordon. Who apparently has some exciting new plans to spend 8.5 billion of other people's money on African schooling. Hurrah!!

    Gordon.
    I suspect he isn't going to be the shoe in that he suspects he is...

    Yes, I was... thrilled by that, good old Gordon.

    I don't think fundamentally Major was a bad man. He just surrounded himself with utter ****s really.

    I like the guy, even if i don't agree with some of the stuff he has done, like send british troops to iraq. I know my dad can't stand him, or bush, not sure why, i don't know much about what Blair has done, but im sure with all the tax rise etc.. (dunno if he has anything to do with this) would be a main reason why my dad can't stand him. :confused:

    He's just generally a bit too smarmy for my taste.

    Despite all the negative things you can say about the guy, he's always been a good representative of the UK.

    The day we get a Cameron in charge of government, I'm going to be ashamed of being British. People don't realise yet what a joke he's going to be on the international scene.

    not enough of a liberatarian. Too authoritarian - especially regarding the terror laws. lets not talk about the wasted billions on the apache helicopters that have just finished being built. Or the money poured into warfare. Or the fact he's bush's lap dog.

    I disagree: when Blair surrendered £1 billion from the British EU rebate, he did so while getting nothing concrete in return. Whether the rebate should or shouldn't have been given up is open to debate, but the fact that he gave it up in return for nothing is certainly not making 'good representation' on behalf of the U.K.

    The man has his faults, but he's still the best prime minister we've had in years. He's managed to remedy many of the problems made by the Tories and the last couple of Labour prime ministers. However, I do think his time is running out.

    He has faults but he's been a good Prime Minister. The time has come for Brown to take over I think.

    He’ll stay until he beats Thatchers record, I think he might go the day after and I think that’s sometime in 2008.
