Well not really it seems but it will be of interest to see what is said tomorrow and what happens in the coming weeks. I think we simply need Gordon in the hot seat asap to put his stamp on government.
Much will be said and mountains of words written (like these!) about the Blair era, but in reality it is in the nature of politics that we must get on with the here and now.
The here and now includes the ongoing Assembly negotiations which, whatever his personal views, the Blair era delivered via the devolution referendum. I still think the visits he made in his "golden era" to soft areas like Wrexham proved vital in the final referendum result.
Without that I would not have had the priviledge of being Labour's first Assembly candidate in Arfon. But more importantly I point to : national minimum wage, record investment in the NHS, a cracking economic record on economic stability, progressive policies in a range of social projects that mean we should be proud of 3 election victories and in the end thankful to Blair.
I still feel the big decision on Iraq was a negative and know from personal experience some will always see this single act as overshadowing all the positives when viewing the Blair era. In spite of this negative, recent election results show that on balance, if we are not careful, the country is unlikely to turn from Blair/Brown to a more socialist state but to the Tories. That is a harsh reality that has shaped my personal politics since the early 1990's.
That is why I see the the nationalist vote as such a waste - but that is for another time. We now await the deluge of words on Blair !
