Blair’s current trip to the Middle East seems rather odd. He would do better to stay at home and sort out his political problems here such as Nothern Ireland, or at least keep a closer handle on his Cabinet Ministers.
Can’t he ever just get on with the job, and do it properly and fully and right to the end for once, instead of prancing off somewhere diverting attention from his real problems?
When there is an issue outside of the country such as the FE Disaster which he should be having something to say on, where is he ? still enjoying his hols – or is he waiting for permission from George B to return.
