Blair Endures

Will he never leave us alone? No, apparently not. We're sick to death of him, but that's never going to stop him from popping up on our screens to explain how he always acted in good faith and how everything that went wrong was Gordon's fault.. Perhaps this is our punishment for having allowed him into power in the first place. Prime Ministers used not to persist like this. All the others I've known- even Margaret Thatcher- faded into the shadows once their time was up. This one appears to be different. Perhaps it's because he's guiltier.

I see his book has gone straight to the top of the best seller lists. I don't understand it. Why would people invite him into their homes? Why would they pay to read his excuses?
