Blair Goes 3 for 3

As I write, Tony Blair and the Labour party have just passed the 324 seats needed to win a historic third term. I guess I'm pleased, compared to the alternative. Blair's majority is looking, at this point, to be greatly reduced, as one might expect, given the circumstances.

You might have thought that Labour was confident, but one glance at Tony Blair's agent, John Burton, tells the real story.

I hope that Blair personally remembers this close shave and that the party takes it to heart and replaces him with someone else (realistically, it would probably be Gordon Brown) to at least try to acknowledge the Iraq stench that sticks to the party at present. The people who voted for Labour with noses pegged would at least feel somewhat vindicated by that.
