Tony Blair With Andrew Marr

Showdown

I have to admit I was impressed.

I do not begrudge it all.  It was fantastic, riveting television – if you’re a politics junkie like me.  I know there will be vociferous opinion against but I thought he was marvellous, quite inspiring and utterly convincing.

He always was the best possible successor to Margaret Thatcher and that shone through in the interview.  He’s explicitly not a socialist, so why he persists in the Labour Party I don’t know.  I can see why he supports the coalition.  In fact, he’d make the perfect coalition PM with Dave and Nick as his deputies!  Now there’s a thought!

I never voted for him but always rather liked him.  I confess I allowed myself to be swayed by the Bliar and anti-Blair brigade but yes, even I am susceptible to propaganda.  Recently, I have given serious attention to his involvement in the Israel Palestine dispute.  I have been deeply impressed at his even-handedness.   It is a talent to remain so impartial in such a heated and emotional situation.  It convinced me of his integrity.

That is the quality that shines through.  It is the quality that matters to me most, that I think means most of all.  He is a man of integrity.  I do not agree with him on everything by any means but…

He is a great man.

  1. Peter,

    I was just about to hit the sack and saw your post. I am so impressed with you and your thoughts on Tony Blair.

    In fact, he’d make the perfect coalition PM with Dave and Nick as his deputies! Now there’s a thought!

    In some small way, perhaps, just perhaps, I helped you to see that yes, HE IS A GREAT man. Now, what do you think REAL Old Labour will make of his calls re Iran.

    Or even Dave & Nick?

    Oh, leadership, where art thou?
