Blair speech to Progress

Progress have put Blair's speech from Saturday online: http://progressonline.org.uk/Magazine/article.asp?a=1377

I do not understand how anyone who heard it or now reads it can want to lose the services of this man as PM and Labour Party Leader.

We should be pleading with him to stay on for a fourth term.

Dear Luke,

You can plead.

We would prefer an election.

He would only need 44 MPs to back him to run again. But first he has to resign as Party Leader.

As the Guardian headlined my letter today: "Time for a statesmanlike sacrifice"

May well be missing something, but I can't see any poicies in that speech.

One of the audience members who asked a question did indeed plead with him to stay on... she asked for him to stay as party leader, but with a different foreign policy.

I resent the implication that I am a 'former LSE hack who knows nothing'.

I do not know anything, but am still very much an LSE hack.
