Tony Blair's statement

The statement by Tony Blair has given a clearer indication that he will be leaving by next summer as Prime Minister, this is something I welcome. His statement today showed a great deal of humility, bearing in mind the events of the past few days and the disgraceful behaviour of some Labour MP's given what Tony Blair has achieved as Labour Party leader.

The party needs to be united otherwise we will inevitably suffer the consequences, of course following his statement some MP's will continue to call for his immediate departure, their behaviour can only play into the hands of David Cameron.

Basically the Labour party can go into self-destruct (which seems to be the choice of some) or we can get on with the business of running the country which we were re-elected to do only just over a year ago, I prefer the latter.

Tony Blair in his statement said "I want to apologise to the country on behalf of the Labour Party for the last week".

Only the last week?

He lloked very tired when he gave his statement. Do you think he has another war in him before he departs the political scene?

No I do not think another war beckons and in relation to the last comment you are obviously not a fan of Tony but at least he has been honest afterall it has been some Labour MP's behaving in a pretty poor manner. The Prime Minister has behaved in a dignified manner.

No,definitely not a fan of Tony Blair - the deception of the British people and the British Parliament over the weapons of mass destruction will remain his biggest legacy. Few doubt that the decision to back Bush had been made many months before they jointly whipped up the hysteria. Have you seen the latest news reports from the USA?

"US president George Bush's entire rationale behind the 2003 invasion of Iraq has been undermined by a report of the Senate's intelligence committee.

The report found little evidence to link Iraq's ousted dictator, Saddam Hussein, with al-Qaida.

It found similarly scant evidence to suggest that Saddam was recommencing his nuclear programme or pursuit of chemical and biological weapons."

So who do you want to follow on from Blair as leader of the Party?

In terms of the next leader I've not come out in favour of anyone just yet! I can assure as well that I'm not supporting John McDonnell
