Tony Blair & Downing Street

Anthony Charles Lynton Blair (born 6 May 1953) is a British Labour Party politician who served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2 May 1997 to 27 June 2007. He was the Member of Parliament (MP) for Sedgefield from 1983 to 2007 and Leader of the Labour Party from 1994 to 2007. He resigned from all of these positions in June 2007. Downing Street in London, England has for over two hundred years housed the official residences of two of the most senior British cabinet ministers: the First Lord of the Treasury, an office now synonymous with that of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and the Second Lord of the Treasury, an office held by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. 5.0/5

“You cannot criticise The city and also the Eu from the first day to day six and also to request for individuals to election for Europe day seven,” he stated. Mr Barroso, who had been changed recently by Jean-Claude Juncker, stated Britain’s influence had reduced since Tony Blair was at Downing Street. Obama no more calls David Cameron first for assistance with Eu issues due to Britain’s waning influence in The city, José Manuel Barroso stated today.

But they haven’t always been so condemnatory... Tony Blair, then Prime Minister, in June 2003: ‘He offers not just tremendous hope for Russia but also the wider world. And I would pay tribute to him as a partner and as a friend.’ George W Bush, then US president, in June 2001: ‘I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul.’ Alex Salmond, leader of Scottish National Party, in May 2014: Pressed on whether he admires Putin: ‘Certain aspects. He’s restored a substantial part of Russian pride and that must be a good thing.’ Prime Minister David Cameron in August 2012: ‘It has been very good to welcome President Putin back to Number 10 Downing Street, and to see this steady growth in British-Russian relations.’ George . ...

March 2003, just before Britain joined the U.S. to attack Iraq, Shell strongly denounced reports that it had held talks with 10 Downing Street about Iraqi oil, declaring such claims as "highly inaccurate". BP denied that it had any "strategic interest" in Iraq, while Tony Blair described "the oil Conspiracy Theory" as "the most absurd". But documents now exposed from October and November the previous year paint a very different picture. Five months before the March 2003 invasion, Baroness Symons, then the British Trade Minister, told BP that the Government believed British energy firms should be given a share of Iraq's enormous oil and gas reserves as a reward for Tony Blair's military commitment to U.S. plans for an Iraqi regime change. Minutes of a meeting with BP, Shell and BG (formerly British Gas) on 31 October 2002 read: "Baroness Symons agreed that it would be difficult to justify British companies losing out in Iraq in that way if the UK had itself been a conspicuous supporter of the US governmen ...

TONY BLAIR READING QUR'AN! London: Former British prime Minister Tony Blair has become "increasingly open" about the importance of religion, and reads the Quran every day to be "faith-literate". Blair, who reportedly said he was not interested in religion, converted to Catholicism after leaving No.10 Downing Street in 2007. The former Labour Party leader now says reading the Islamic holy book ensured he remained "faith-literate", reports the Daily Mail. "To be faith-literate is crucial in a globalisedbworld, I believe. I read the Quran every day. Partly to understand some of the thingsbhappening in the world, but mainly just because it is immensely instructive," he said. Blair said a knowledge of the faith was important for his role as an envoy for the Quartet of the UN, US, European Union and Russia. Blair earlier reportedly praised the Muslim faith as "beautiful". He said Prophet Mohammed had been "an enormously civilising force". The former Prime Minister said the Quran was a "reforming book, it is inc ...
Alastair Campbell, the man who helped Tony Blair win three elections, left Downing Street a decade ago. But the master of spin is as busy as ever and never short of an opinion.
Pitt the Younger, Disraeli, Gladstone, Churchill, Atlee - each one of these great men laboured ceaselessly to attain what for them was the most wonderful job in the world, the Premiership of Britain. It is a measure of how the United Kingdom has changed that today a new type of career politician has emerged: one who no longer sees 10 Downing Street as an end in itself, but rather as a stepping stone for higher things. Tony Blair falls squarely into this category (and it is very much to be hoped that David Cameron will not turn out to be another). Blair, who quit as an MP within months of leaving office, had been intriguing for the Presidency of the European Union for more than a decade. Indeed it was within months of his winning the 1997 General Election, that his aides were confiding that his long-term aim was the then non-existent post of European President. In his time in office he was faced with the choice of either doing his best for Britain - or of creating a good impression with potential future em ...

Tony Blair says murder of Lee Rigby PROVES 'there is a problem within Islam'•Ex-PM says 'the ideology behind his murder is profound and dangerous' •Bold intervention comes of ever of Cameron Commons speech •Blair urges governments to 'be honest' By Glen Owen, Mail on Sunday Political Correspondent PUBLISHED: 22:09, 1 June 2013 | UPDATED: 00:57, 2 June 2013 Tony Blair today makes his most powerful political intervention since leaving Downing Street by launching an outspoken attack on ‘the problem within Islam’.

Lady Thatcher, (the former Prime Minister for those too young to remember), has claimed more than £500,000 in expenses in the last five years, despite her ill health. The 86-year-old still carries out some public engagements more than 20 years after she left office. As a former Prime Minister, she is eligible for a public duties cost allowance to cover office and secretarial expenses. Cabinet Office figures reveal Lady Thatcher claimed £535,000 since 2006. Sir John Major, who succeeded her in Downing Street, has received £490,000. He created the fund when he was in power in 1991. Tony Blair, who beat Sir John in the 1997 election, has been given just under £273,000 from the public purse since 2007. In 2008-9, he received more from the allowance than he earned from his official salary when he was Prime Minister the year before. The figures were published in response to a written question from Conservative MP Philip Hollobone. In his response, Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude said: "The public duti ...
The New Archbishop and the state of the church The Telegraph View – 2nd Feb 2013 Some thoughts and comments “…..The new Archbishop takes up his post when the relevance of religion is under question more than at any time in our history. The Church, along with many other institutions, has gradually been squeezed out of our lives as greater emphasis has been placed on values and rights than on responsibilities and duties. Recent politicians have been complicit in this aggressive secularism – even when, as with Tony Blair, they have themselves been believers. It is hard to imagine a Prime Minister taking office today and reciting a prayer on the threshold of Downing Street, as did Margaret Thatcher in 1979. David Cameron confesses that his religious faith comes and goes like “Magic FM in the Chilterns”; and it was insisted that Mr Blair did not “do God”. Prof Dawkins described religion as nothing more than charlatanry, because it was “a phoney substitute for an explanation” of who we are a ...

LONDON (Reuters) - Giving Prime Minister David Cameron a bloody nose over Europe may have given Labour Party a short-term glow, but their lurch towards the anti-Brussels camp risks leaving them divided, isolated and lacking credibility. After years of broadly pro-European policies, the centre-left party joined a rebellion organised by members of Cameron's Conservatives demanding he pushes for a real-terms cut in the EuropeanUnion budget at talks this month. Cameron, who supports a rise in line with inflation, lost the non-binding but politically embarrassing vote in parliamentlate on Wednesday. Only two days before, former Labour primeMinister Tony Blair issued a warning that playing "short-term politics" on Europe could leave Britain out in the cold when it should be playing a bigger role in shaping EU reforms. Labour's prize was a barrage of Halloween-inspired headlines talking of Europe comingback to haunt Cameron in a "Nightmare on Downing Street", a reference to his official residence. That piled pre ...
Jack Straw is expected to be quizzed by Scotland Yard detectives over claims of MI6 complicity in rendition and torture. Downing Street yesterday said the former foreign secretary should be interviewed following claims a Labour minister gave the green light for a Libyan man to be handed over for torture by the Gaddafi regime. Senior sources said Tony Blair could also be questioned since only he or Mr Straw – who have both maintained their ignorance of the affair – could have signed off on the deal.

During the invasion of Iraq, a new euphemism appeared: 'embedding'', invented by the heirs of the Pentagon's language assassins who had dreamt up 'collateral damage'. 'Embedding' was not just true of journalists in the field. Standing outside 10 Downing Street, the BBC's political editor reported the fall of Baghdad as a kind of victory speech, broadcasting on the Evening News. Tony Blair, he told viewers, 'said they would be able to take Baghdad without a bloodbath, and in the end Iraqis would be celebrating. And on both these points he has been proved conclusively right.' A study by a peer-reviewed team at John Hopkins University in the US and published in the Brittish medical journal The Lancet puts the civilian death toll at more than 100,000, a slaughter not by 'insurgents' but by the American-dominated 'coalition'.

The Tories have slumped to a 14-point deficit behind Labour, according to an opinion poll. The survey for the Sunday Express by pollsters Angus Reid puts David Cameron's party on just 29% - compared to 43% for Labour. The paper said that it represented Labour's biggest lead over the Conservatives since December 2002 when Tony Blair was in Downing Street and Iain Duncan Smith was the Tory leader. The poll findings also make grim reading for Mr Cameron's coalition partners, the Liberal Democrats, who are on just 9% - level pegging with the UK Independence Party.
