I.e., the date Tony Blair finally steps down. The current favourite at Betfair.com is Jan 2008 Onwards , i.e. as late as he can. Consciously or unconsciously, Blair intends to scupper Gordon Brown's chances of reaching No. 10 (except for the flat at the top, which he's always had). Partly it's a personal thing against Gordon, and partly i think he just hates the idea of Labour winning with anyone except him, their Jesus-man.

I fancy the Conservatives for the next election, especially when Blair's actions are causing maximum damage for the short-term future of his party, encouraging dissatisfaction, frustration, plotting and disunity among his MPs and irritation and weariness to the electorate. He hasnt even ruled out trying for a fourth term, i think. He'll go on and on like Steve Redgrave. He wants to try and surpass Thatcher. I hope he goes for it and i hope he loses. He needs holding to account on Iraq, and the British people will live in the annals of infamy if they let him get away with that.
