Blair names a date (sort of)

Don't cry-ee, dont sigh-ee,
there's a silver lining in the sky-ee,
Bonsoir, old thing, cheer-i-o, chin, chin,
Nah-poo, toodle-oo,

Tony Blair's premiership is to end with a whimper and he will be lucky to see out the next few weeks. A promise to be gone within the year makes Novemeber's Queens Speech irrelevant as he won't be there to see any promise through. My advice Tony is to keep up the pretence of staying on and the resign at the Conference. It will be your last moment to truly dicate the agenda.

From a partisan point of view Blair going quickly works for us. Brown is our ideal opponent but the longer we go on the stronger Johnson gets ...
