End of the Parliamentary Year

Bet Tony Blair is glad this session is over. It was his toughest year, the family worries, heart worries, Iraq and the ashes of his credibility smouldering in a pile of burnt dossiers. Still its his last parliament before the election and he can then hand over to Brown or more mischeviously Milburn after the votes are counted. He must be looking forward to writing his multi-million pound memoirs and some juicy private sector directorships perhaps at the Carlyle Group or another multi-national conglomerate. The formal conversion to Catholicism will satisfy his spiritual needs without controversy once he is no longer PM.

Life could be good. Nearly there…

Except the parliamentary authorities have, despite frantic behind the scenes efforts, given the go ahead for the attempt to impeach him next week.
