Tony Blair Bows Out Craving Approval
I have to pinch myself that I am listening to this rubbish. This speech demeans Blair. His constant craving for approval is stomach churning. "I did what I thought was right" he has said - twice. He sounds as if he is facing a war crimes tribunal rather than making a resignation statement. It was actually very American in tone - very emotional. Very unbritish, if you like. His final line amounted to a mea culpa. Indeed, he apologised for the things he got wrong. There's a first.
