Tony Blair On The Daily Show

TONY BLair today starts his teaching career at Yale University, Euan Blair’s old haunt, , leading a seminar group on “faith and globalisation”.

Blair is participating in the “Faith and Globalization Initiative,” a three-year collaboration among Yale’s Divinity School, School of Management and the Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

Blair: “Here’s something I find always goes down well, particularly back home: I like him.”

Stewart: “I would probably like him too, if he wasn’t in charge of me.”
