He hasn’t got blood on his hands. The anti-war nutters must not be allowed to damage Blair’s reputation further. He was a great PM, a great statesman and a great leader.”

    So there we have it. Gordon Brown has resigned, and we await the new government and prime minister.

    So here’s something I prepared earlier –

    At long last we are about to get a new prime minister and government, for better or worse.

    So, which Blair record has Mr Cameron broken?

    David Cameron is younger than Tony Blair was when the latter came to power in May 1997.

    Mr Blair was four days short of 44 when he walked triumphantly into Downing Street. Prime Minister David Cameron is five months short of 44 as he enters Number 10, relieved if not quite triumphant.

    David Cameron - thumbs up.

    David William Donald Cameron (born 9 October 1966) is the leader of the Conservative Party and Leader of the Opposition in the United Kingdom. He has occupied both positions since December 2005.

    And a few months from now there will be another record-breaker for David Cameron; a new baby for David and Samantha Brown. (Gordon Brown’s children all arrived prior to his taking the hot seat.) So, Mr Cameron will be younger than Mr Blair when his wife gives birth to their fourth child.  Of such interesting snippets Wikipedia records are compiled.

    Leo Blair’s birth was a 150-year+ record-breaker

    Now let’s see what other Blair records Mr Cameron can break, considering that the first one, an electoral landslide, has somehow evaded him.


    Anthony Charles Lynton “Tony” Blair (born 6 May 1953) is a British Labour 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 for Sedgefield from 1983 to 2007 and Leader of the Labour Party from 1994 to 2007; he resigned from all these positions in June 2007.

    Blair became the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom on 2 May 1997, serving concurrently as First Lord of the Treasury, Minister for the Civil Service and Leader of the Labour Party. The 43-year old Blair became the youngest person to become Prime Minister since Lord Liverpool in 1812, at the age of 42.[49] With victories in 1997, 2001, and 2005, Blair was the Labour Party’s longest-serving prime minister, the only person to lead the party to three consecutive general election victories.

      As much as swine flu did not turn out to be as bad as first thought, it still killed. Brown set up programs and advertising. At least when people got flu they checked and sort medical aid knowing that swine flu was aggressive. Cameron banned advertising so it was not after more than ten people died of swine flu over a really short period did anyone even know it had returned and most are only just aware of it, 28 dead, many no underline health problems, more than 400 on life support. If people knew then getting flu they would of sort medical help sooner. When asked about this, Cameron said that advertising has no evidence it would of made a difference. His so called cuts have cost lives, and now he has banned or rather withdrawn all the vaccines for kids under 5. He also has cut and got rid of lollypop people that kids rely on to get them safely across busy roads. He has cut army buget, less fireman means less lives saved. I have been through Wikkileaks, all the promises he made even to America at a time he knew what deficit was. This man in such a short period in office as already got blood on his hands, if one person could of been saved by people being told swine flu was back, had tami flu, got help, then their deaths are on his hands. Cameron, Osbourne, told America they are “Thatchers children”, Atlantians, this is a European group linked to National Europe bank.

        It’s his getting rid of the NHS Direct service that I most disapprove of, Sue. Most people thin that is a very worthwhile service. And it seems he wants to call it something els, but more or less retain it. In other words paint a new service as HIS and not Blair’s Atrocious, costly behaviour.

        The man is continuing to disappoint me. But then again since I didn’ expect much, I’m not as disappointed as I imagine others are.
