Pretty amazing view on Only Blair. Was I not paying attention during his administration, or did the press give him a pass during his ten years?
He stood firmly with us during the war, when most offered only criticism.

Americans don’t know how REALLY Liberal the British are. If you recall, in the election that put Blair in office, it was a virtual landslide for Liberal candidates all across the country and areas which for decades had been Conservative, voted for Blair. It was something, truly amazing.
In the UK, I think, Liberal and Labor are virtually the same thing. They have no qualms about the lack of any designation in their politics. In the US, at least for now, there is a sort of a thin line separating Labor and Democrats... rapidly fading of course, but still two distinct political and social phenomena. In the end, we may end up with the same thing. God help us then.
