Labour as they are now reminds me alot of the Tories during Major's premiership - and that can't be considered as a good thing.
I like Blair as a person, but he needs to go to give the party a decent chance of recovery before the next election. That's not to say that I necessarily believe that Cameron (or whomever happens to be in control of the Tories at the time) will walk it, but that small majority they have right now would just get even smaller.

count this one as a vote for
"he should go"?
In an interview with GQ magazine, the reporter asked him: "Would the assassination of, say, Tony Blair by a suicide bomber - if there were no other casualties - be justified as revenge for the war on Iraq?"

Mr Galloway replied: "Yes, it would be morally justified. I am not calling for it - but if it happened it would be of a wholly different moral order to the events of 7/7. It would be entirely logical and explicable. And morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq - as Blair did."

Galloway is a useful idiot for the Islamists, just as (Did you lie to us)Tony is a useful idiot for the neocons.

He should resign. There's a reason why that election went the way it did. I was shocked at what happened to Jack Straw. I got virtually no news in Turkey because alot of times the TV in my hotel room didn't work, but I did get the news of this election.

Poll shows most Britons want Blair to resign now


Prime Minister Tony Blair

Most Britons think Prime Minister Tony Blair should step down now, according to an opinion poll published on Sunday after a week of damaging headlines for the British premier over an investigation into political funding.

Blair, who plans to resign later this year after more than a decade in power, was questioned by police for a second time last month about the case which has also seen some of his closest aides arrested.

Blair said in a speech to activists from his Labour Party on Saturday that he did not underestimate the scale of the problems facing his government. But he has said the cash-for-peerages probe will not force him to bring forward his departure date.

The ICM poll published in the Sunday Express newspaper found 56 percent of those polled believed Blair should resign now. Even among those who termed themselves as Labour voters, 43 percent said Blair should leave his post immediately.

Blair really isn't in control of the country anymore, all the diplomatic meetings etc are being carried out by Gordon Brown, there is only one reason I can think why Blair is still remaining on.....he wants to sort out the Northern Ireland assembly, it is the only thing he can salvage that will be a good mark in history for him.
