Twelve hours to go!

Tony Blair resigns at 14:00 GMT. I can't wait to see the back of him.

Unfortunately, it looks like he'll be appointed by the "quartet" as a special envoy for peace in the Middle East. Given his stunning track record there (invading Iraq, working to prolong Israel's war against Lebanon in the hope they could actually win), this is simply obscene, so obscene that I'm surprised anyone can even voice the idea with a straight face. But morally blind obscenity pretty much encapsulates the West's entire approach to the region, so perhaps it shouldn't be surprising at all.


Did you notice he has also resigned as an MP - unusually, as most former PMs respect the convention that MPs serve for a whole term.

I suspect he will become a peer - Baron Blair of the New American Empire.
