Blair has set an example

    [Having become Prime Minister at the age of 43, he was responsible for what is termed `fostering peace in Northern Ireland` and building the British economy to the present level. He brought unemployment down and created conditions for the British economy to thrive.]

    He was a goor prime minister untill he became Bush`s Puppet.

    He may be one of the best britain ever had. unfortunately he`ll be remembered mostly for iraq. its a good example that a lie gets exposed in the long run however much you try to spin it. now it seems that he was duped by chaney who was running the agenda all the time while he was talking to bush and powell who had no control whatsoever. its sad cause he wasnt such a bad guy in the end.

    [He is worthy of emulation]

    For us in Sri Lanka, his stepping down, at such a young age as 53 years is the most important lesson for our politicians. May be our politicians will blame his lack of political experience or lack of staying power etc.

    He cooked his political goose the day he decided to become Bush`s poodle. Lets hope his successor, Brown, will do a better job with the foreign policy. For us, thats all that matters.

    I suppose Blair was a good leader. But a career in democratic politics as head of state sometimes leads to a poor or mediocre finish if the polititian overstays.

    It happened to a lot of them. Blair, Clinton, George W. Bush (I`m just speculating here), Reagan, CBK, JRJ, Sirimavo, Thatcher, Gorbochev,...

    Mr.Tony Blair, at 53, has decided `to call it a day`, great statesman..lead his labour party to victory in 3 consecutive elections...he is worthy of emulation by our Sri Lankan leaders/politicians.....He still has time to COME BACK AGAIN, if the next Premier ( Gordon B) become unpopular OR Labour finds a shortage of `leaders` to challenge the Strong Opposition in the next Parliamentary Election, or the Next. The same happened in our country too, Mr. Dudley Senanayaka resigned as PM in 1954, but lead the UNP again after a lapse of 6-7 years to Victory in March 1960 and became PM, and again lead UNP to victory in 1965, and was our Premier 1965-1970. He too was one of our greatest and admirable (very few in S/L who could be compared).
