Tony Blair Is Carried Out Heart First

by | 27th, June 2007

HOW does he do it? How does Tony Blair manage to leave with his head held high and become – irony of ironies – a special envoy for peace in the Middle East?

As Jonathan Freedland notes:

For Tony Blair will leave today not with his head bowed, or drummed out of office, but on a day and in a manner of his choosing. He has choreographed his exit with a thousand send-offs: cheers at Sedgefield, a last hug at the White House, a final round of backslapping from European leaders last week and yet another ovation from a Labour conference on Sunday. No hint of a leader made to dip his head for a fateful, lethal mistake.

Will we cheer Cherie, too?
