Blair steps down

Post by Yogi »

Apparently there will be a change in leadership in the UK this week. Is everybody there happy about this?

Oh yes!!! The same thing was happening with Blair as is happening with Dubya. Blair started making mistakes, his approval ratings started to go through the floor, voters started to think maybe the conservatives could be a better alternative. Thankfully Blair could see this, he didn't want to be pushed out, he wanted to leave with dignity. I still liked Blair for all his faults, ok so he'll always be remembered for his biggest fault, getting us involved in Iraq. But he was a good leader of Britain.

Brown is very much more Liberal, as is his new deputy leader. It will take the Labour party back over to the left where it belongs.
The ignorant close their mind and convince themselves that there's only one truth. The wise keep an open mind to the different possibilities leading to and stemming from the present. Look not with your eyes but with your mind.
