Broken Vows The Tragedy Of Power
In May 1997 the people of Britain raised their hopes high with the election of the youngest PM since 1812… with an approval rating of 93% and a landslide victory to kick start his tenure, Tony Blair was the longest serving Labour Prime Minister in office ever.
Blair arrived on the scene full of promise his manifesto read like the proverbial new broom, He would sweep clean the sleaze, his New Labour would modernize Britain putting an end to the age old boys clubs and special interest groups rife in Westminster. Tony Blair was the new white knight, nothing was ever going to be the same…...
The cracks began to show, the spin was spinning out of control. Tony Blair began to lie his way into more trouble for himself and the people of Britain than he was able to gracefully lie his way out of. His claims for rebuilding Britain’s troubled infrastructure, the Schools, Hospitals and welfare services rang hollow, dodgy deals and cagey behaviour left us all with more questions than answers. The biggest quandary of all, how someone who now works for the worst despots of the world, earning millions of pounds fulfilling his duties in the service of dictators was so quick to serve up Saddam Hussein on a platter to his American friends he risked his now tarnished name to do so.
……How far from his flamboyant arrival, his low key and almost unobtrusive exit.
