Tony Blair & the Labour Party

I'm curious about how people outside the UK perceive Tony Blair and the Labour party, so I thought I'd start a quick poll on it. That's about all there is to say really. Vote away!

Can I vote for "just left of center"? With a great accent? (I promise I know better, but I swear that man could talk me into believing about anything with that accent....)

I voted "liberal/leftist" but if "left of center" had been in there I would have voted that way.

Leftist... really? I find Blair to be the most conservative European out there. After all, not many "leftists" and Europeans are still trying to find WMDs in Iraq.

it is my understanding that blair has led the leftist-liberal party in a more centrist-right direction, than they might have otherwise preferred.

this is why he has his own MPs opposing him on issues concerning Iraq while he is able to pick up support from the more conservative parties.

as such i didn't respond

In that case, I've never heard of a single European conservative.

Not really, because I've never heard of him.
