Blair to resign by Christmas

Telegraph | News | Blair will be gone by Christmas, say friends: "Tony Blair is to announce his resignation by Christmas, members of his inner circle believe.

The Prime Minister's closest aides feel that, following a series of damaging rows over education and 'sleaze', he will quit within nine months.

The disclosure comes as John Prescott, the Deputy Prime Minister, agreed to try to broker an agreement between Mr Blair and back-bench MPs over the succession after being warned that uncertainty about the leadership is having a disastrous effect on Labour morale."

Dang. Blair's been a rock solid ally in the war on terror. While I beleive he is rather liberal at home, he's an old school liberal. One that will defend his nation and allies, despite the costs. I'm sorry to see him go.

I am not sorry at all.

You would probably think differently if you lived in the UK.

The sooner he goes, the sooner his Left-wing successor, Gordon Brown can start screwing up the country and be promptly booted out.

There are allegations that the Labour party appointed individuals to the House of Lords who had given loans to the party.

God Bless

ooh. Bank scandal. We had that before I was paying attention to all the news. The congress men were writing checks, and not paying for them, thanks to a loophole.

Money + Power = corruption
