Tony Blair: a dead duck « Previous | |Next »
May 7, 2006

It sure looks like the beginning of the end for Tony Blair, the British Prime Minister.

Blair's recent 'bloodletting' reshuffle, at the time of a savaging at the local election polls was a sign that Blair has no intention of resigning gracefully; yet we do seem to have reached the stage of the leadership endgame. Since the Conservative opposition does not look ready for office, Labour is still the only party that has a chance of gaining an overall majority at the next general election.

Labour is split on the strategy for rejuvenation.

The split in this Government is between competing analyses. On the one hand, there are those, like Hazel Blears, the new and staunchly Blairite party chairman, who believe that only the Prime Minister is capable of bringing about "renewal". On the other hand, there are those MPs - some of whom are now circulating draft letters - who believe that a "timetable" for Mr Blair's departure is now the party's only hope. That means Labour rejuvenates itself by replacing Blair with Gordon Brown the Chancllor of the Exchequer.
