Blair Watch


The alternate-reality Prime Minister's questions—in which liberals applaud Prime Minister Blair for his relationship with President Bush and conservatives condemn him for not spending enough on education—always make me thankful I don't live in the UK. Actually, many things make me thankful I don't live in the UK, but Blair and Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith always give a fairly enjoyable show. The BBC's assessment of the most recent session posits that Blair will not extend the United Nations road show despite cabinet minister Clare Short's threat to resign over his Iraq/US policy.
