It appears Alistair Campbell, who many think did Blair's bidding over the intelligence reports leading up to war, is strongly rumored to have told Blair that he will resign when his name is cleared of wrongdoing. Spinning to the last! Surely he couldn't be attempting to pre-empt a messy end by saying if it all goes wrong,"Hey, I'd told you I was going to resign all along!" Judicial enquiries, such as the one soon underway, are hardly ever able to be positively black or white. All he will be hoping for is a slight gray area which he can attempt to use to clear his tattered reputation, thus boosting his ratings in the job market. Things are falling apart for Blair in a huge way now; he now has very few (if any) of his inner circle of advisors who have guided his career over the past ten years (way before coming PM) left. Geoff Hoon (Defence Secretary) in being increasingly distanced by Blair over the death of the weapons expert, and looks likely to be forced to carry the can over that tawdry episode. Blair's ratings are plummeting according to the most recent polls. All I can say, once again, is good riddance - you go against the will of your people at huge risk.
