Just watched Tony Blair on Sky speaking to the annual national prayer breakfast in Washington. Quite extraordinary. Striking enough that he is the first world leader (that's what a senior minister described him as to me yesterday - talk about king over the water) to meet with Barack Obama, who is sitting alongside him (and just described him as 'my very good friend'). It's that he's saying things that he was never brave enough to say as Prime Minister, and which Gordon Brown wouldn't utter even if he believed it.You know, I can't stand Labour, but I just can't help liking Tony Blair.
.....watching Mr Blair put on a trademark display of self-deprecation and lip-quivvering guffery was a moment for nostalgia. Say what you like, this guy is good.
