Professional Information
Position:
Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

Description of Work:

Under his leadership, Blair's party used the phrases "New Labour" and "New Socialism" to define its policy, and moved away from its support of state socialism since the 1960s and created a new version of the ethical socialism that was last pursued by Clement Attlee.

Critics of Blair claim that "New Labour" did not adhere to socialism as claimed, and that it effectively advocated capitalism.

However, Blair's role as Prime Minister was particularly visible in foreign and security policy, including in Northern Ireland, where he was involved in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. From the start of the War on Terror in 2001, Blair strongly supported the foreign policy of US President George W.

Bush, notably by participating in the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan and 2003 invasion of Iraq. Blair is the Labour Party's longest-serving Prime Minister, the only person to have led the Labour Party to three consecutive general election victories, and the only Labour Prime Minister to serve consecutive terms more than one of which was at least four years long.

He was succeeded as Leader of the Labour Party on 24 June 2007 and as Prime Minister on 27 June 2007 by Gordon Brown. On the day he resigned as Prime Minister, he was appointed the official Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East. In May 2008, Blair launched his Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

Desmond Tutu is correct that Bush and Blair and members of their criminal administrations should be prosecuted. Members of the US congress and UK parliament should also be investigated and charged for their utter complicity in war crimes. We tried to impeach Bush and Cheney in the U.S. but Nancy Pelosi blocked the efforts. Barack Obama and his Attorney General refused to uphold the law. Its time to throw the bums out, and replace the corrupt two party tyranny in the U.S. http://www.voterocky.org/
