Blair forgets his own disasters
TO say that Tony Blair has lobbed something of a hand grenade into the British body politic with his memoirs is something of an understatement. The former prime minister and champion of New Labour has already been accused of starting a civil war within his troubled party.
His withering depiction of his successor Gordon Brown as a "disaster" will do little to restore the fortunes of his former colleagues already booted out of office.
As the leadership race to replace Mr Brown gets under way, it is unlikely that the main contender, David Miliband, will be first on the phone to congratulate his old boss.
