Book Description
When Tony Blair entered Downing Street on 2 May 1997, Britain Seemed a different place. On that brilliant spring day the country suddenly appeared fresher, brighter a marked contrast to the grayness of the dog days of Tory rule. That early optimism was in large part of reaction to the personality of Blair himself. Public school, Oxford and a career at the Bar had helped make him the acceptable face of a labour party he has already modernized beyond recognition. His charisma, drive and newness won two successive three-figure majorities. But with the triumphs have come allegations of arrogance, of hubris, from the over promising of delivery on public services tot eh crusading zeal of his foreign policy, Blair seemed to think he could solve all of the country`s and the world`s problems. But his two terms have been dogged by a sense of disappointment, as the sense of expectation about his government`s potential has become mired in the eternal conflict between tax and spend as well as uncertainty over Britain`s role in Europe and a world now ruled by US primacy and pre-emption.
