So the BBC is announcing that Tony Blair could soon be announcing his retirement from Number 10. It’s about time. It’s a pity he couldn’t just leave office today and allow someone take his place that can start to lower our national debt again instead of raising it.
I didn’t vote for Labour Party to come into power, and now as I see what havoc the years of leadership under Tony Blair have created, I feel somewhat justified in my first opinion that it wasn’t in the best interests of the country for him to take control out of the Tory hands. I’m from a traditional working class background in the North East of England and if someone from my part of the world thinks that a Labour Prime Minister isn’t the best thing for the country, then there’s something wrong!
I can’t think of one event over the entire period of his being Prime Minister where I can think “he did a good job there”. Nothing positive stands out at all, well except for the birth of the baby whilst at
Downing Street! If there was something he’d been positively responsible for that had been overshadowed by the war in
Iraq, that would have been fair enough – but that fiasco just seems to sum up the entire period in office.
Last time there was a good reason for a change in Government it was because the Tory party had no strong leader to step up and say “I can run this country well” in a convincing enough tone. I think we’re at this place again, only it’s Labour Party who is weak – the only thing that bothers me is that I don’t know whether the Conservative Party have managed to create a strong leader in the time it’s been out of power. It could be time for the Liberal Democrats to show what they’re made of and create a stir at the polls next General Election.
Meanwhile, let’s hope that Tony Blair can manage to leave office with the same conviction he led us into war, swiftly and without consultation with the people who believed in him enough to put the future of our country in his hands.
Things seem good on the work front.
