GOOD­BYE PHONEY BLAIR

Daily Mirror - - TODAY'S TV -

I imag­ine that I’m only one of many who can re­mem­ber the hope and eu­pho­ria of 1997, when New Labour came to power to the sound of Things Can Only Get Bet­ter ring­ing in our ears and a real sense of hope for the fu­ture after years of Tory rule. Tony Blair was a breath of fresh air to many of us.

Un­for­tu­nately, his big­gest mis­take was back­ing Pres­i­dent Bush in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although Mr Blair thought he was do­ing the right thing, he wasn’t. Now, all of a sud­den, he sees him­self as the el­der states­man who wants to share his knowl­edge and thoughts on all is­sues. No thanks, Mr Blair. With­out you things, in­deed, can only get bet­ter! S Bear, Mitcham, Sur­rey
