    I was in Washington DC over new year for a British-US wedding. My American host took me to the Capital Grille* to 'see in' 2005. As we went to pay for the champagne, the bartender announced that the drinks had been paid for. A very merry gentleman next to me – wearing an elephant-festooned Republican tie - insisted that no Englishman would be paying for anything. “You come from Tony Blair’s country”, he said. “Blair was a stand-up guy against Saddam. We love him.” I can’t visit America without conservatives paying tribute to Britain’s Labour Prime Minister. Friends in the...

    Iraq’s historic election would have been impossible without your leaders and forcesFOR THOSE fortunate to live in a stable, peaceful and democratic country such as Britain, it is difficult to understand the full importance and impact of Sunday’s elections on Iraq and its people. Perhaps only those denied freedom for so long can fully grasp its meaning.For millions of Iraqis, Sunday was a day of history and high emotion. I never doubted, despite the violence and threats, that the Iraqi people would demonstrate their courage and love of freedom. They knew how important Sunday’s poll was to their country’s future...

    We are not sure if you ever get the chance to see this letter, however we though to drop you a few words of thanks for all the good work you and your administrations have done so far. In the world of chaos, continual human-made catastrophes and political turmoil it is easy enough to miss the humane actions of many noble people out there. But, this does not mean that normal day-to-day ordinary people cannot see and they do not appreciate your hard-work and the tremendous pressure you sustain to help your fellow innocent human being. Sirs, please allow us...

    Tony Blair will fly to America to lend support to George Bush in his fight to win a second term as US president. The Prime Minister will stay as President Bush's guest in what will be seen as an extraordinary display of support. It is thought to be the first time a Labour premier has thrown his weight behind a Right-wing Republican during a US presidential election - and is bound to cement Mr Blair's position as the White House's favourite foreign statesman. Details of the trip have yet to be decided but a stay on the President's home ranch...

    UK Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon has been awarded the Pentagon's highest civilian honour for the British armed forces' role in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Distinguished Public Service Award was given to Mr Hoon by his US counterpart, Donald Rumsfeld, at a small ceremony at the Pentagon. It was awarded in recognition for Mr Hoon's leadership role in the so-called war on terror, a top US official said. It was also a gesture of thanks for the role UK armed forces played in Iraq.

    Blair sides with Bush in Iraqi contracts row BRUSSELS (AFP) - British Prime Minister Tony Blair sided with the Bush administration in the row over Iraqi reconstruction contracts, saying the United States gets the last word on how it spends its own billions. Speaking at the EU summit in Brussels, Blair said a stable, prosperous Iraq was in Europe's own interests -- but that didn't automatically mean that European nations which opposed to the US-led war should share in the spoils. "It's very important to emphasise that this is American money (being spent on Iraqi reconstruction)," he told reporters. "It's...

    Tony Blair's address to Congress last Thursday (July 17) was the first by a British prime minister since Margaret Thatcher in 1985, and only the fourth such address in our history. Maybe they should drop in more often to remind us of what many appear to have forgotten. Sounding like a motivational speaker, blending wit and wisdom, Blair told Congress he had come with an "urgent sense of mission," and he summed up what America, Britain and the free world face: "September the 11th was not an isolated event, but a tragic prologue, Iraq another act, and many further struggles...

    Blair Gets White House Ceremony As Thanks By JENNIFER LOVEN .c The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush goes out of his way to pay back friends, particularly allies in the wars against Iraq and global anti-terrorism. This week, it's a White House ceremony for Britain's Tony Blair and a stay at the Bush ranch in Texas for Italy's Silvio Berlusconi. Bush has a full menu of perks to reward a foreign leader. The selective special treatment has another purpose, too: It sends a not-so-subtle message to those who miss out. War opponents like France's Jacques Chirac and Germany's...

    A tiny Iraqi boy today planted a kiss on Tony Blair’s cheek after the Prime Minister told youngsters at a rebuilt school they were their country’s future. Mr Blair visited the Khadija Al Kubra School on the outskirts of Basra, which reopened recently thanks to more than £15,000 of emergency Ministry of Defence funding. He was met by head teacher Saud Kadhim who told him he was “most welcome” at her school. Mr Blair was also met by Royal Military Police Sergeant Rachael Webster, of Brigg, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, who had supervised the reconstruction of the dilapidated building. The Prime Minister...

    The Daily Mirror is supposedly a very left-wing, anti-U.S. rag in the United Kingdom. But one of their top journalists, Tony Parsons, wrote moving articles about America on Sept. 11, 2002 and again on Feb. 3, 2003 after Columbia crashed. Now he has written this: The Daily Mirror.

    Prime Minister Tony Blair took time out to phone and thank a man who wrote praising his tough stand on Iraq, it was revealed yesterday. Mr Blair said such letters stiffened his resolve when he faced widespread opposition to war. The Prime Minister telephoned John Rollinson after receiving a note praising his solidarity with the United States. Mr Rollinson, 52, of South Ockendon, Essex, said he was "gobsmacked" when he heard the Prime Minister's voice on the line. "I received a letter saying the Prime Minister has asked to thank you for your letter and then he called," he said....
