More on Tony Blair

Andrew Gimson's sketch in today's Telegraph about Tony Blair's appearance before the international development secretary has a stinging end:

"Might it help if Mr Blair were to return to the party that he led so long and so successfully? The Labour Party is understandably worried about removing Mr Brown and inflicting a second unelected Prime Minister on us but they could instead inflict the elected Prime Minister, Mr Blair, on us.

Yet as we watched this very clever, fluent, plausible, self-righteous, over-friendly salesman twist the committee round his little finger, a different thought formed in our mind. Good riddance."

One thing that worries me about the degree of hatred that is shown towards Gordon Brown is that people have forgotten quite how vile a person his predecessor as Prime Minister was.
