BBC one o’clock news 20th October 1987 interview with Tony Blair
A very young-looking Tony Blair, Labour’s then Spokesman on City Affairs, in an interview about the stock market crash with the BBC’s Michael Buerk.
A LESSON FOR TODAY FROM A YOUNGER TONY BLAIR
This is most intriguing.
Tony Blair is saying in this interview exactly what we all now know to be true – 24 years on!
The world’s economies are so intrinsically linked together that repercussions from any fallout from Wall Street affects all of us.
Hardly surprising that he is chief amongst those proclaiming that the euro must survive.
Comment samples follow from the Ban Blair-Baiting petition
1. I completely agree with everything that has been said on this website. As Prime Minister, Tony Blair worked tirelessly and selflessly in the interests of the people, and continues to do so today. He is primarily a humanitarian, and doesn’t deserve any of the vitriol that has been levelled at him. He was a great Prime Minister, is a thoroughly decent man; and should in my opinion, be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his outstanding work. – David Miliband (New Labour’s heir) for the next PM!
2. Best politician in Britain by a long way.
3. Fully support the petition. The criticism of Mr Blair has gone way beyond anything acceptable and seems to be carried out mainly by those who are looking to wash their hands of any involvement in supporting the Iraq war at the time. It is very easy to be ‘wise after the event’ and to make assumptions about how much Mr Blair knew or did not know before the war. In these people’s eyes, the former PM is guilty whatever the evidence.
4. An excellent petition this for a very undervalued PM. A PM who is not only the best in my lifetime but my parents lifetime too!
