And it's goodbye from him ...

"Adios, Amigos!"

The most successful Labour leader ever, quite posssibly Britain's finest Prime Minister, one of the greatest statesmen this nation - nay the world - has ever seen.

This country may never see his like again.

Of course, the removal of Saddam and his regime was entirely just. But the complete failure to give any thought to how to actually build democracy in Iraq, the incredible mess that has been made of the occupation and hoped-for reconstruction, has meant that suffering and death in Iraq has been greater than would have been if we hadn't gone ahead with the humanitarian intervention - and seriously retarded the possibility of humanitarian intervention in the future.

The one thing that could have given Blair a legacy, the one things that could have mitigated his disastrously Tory domestic governance, and he cocked that up as well. For someone who not only reached the office of Prime Minister but held it for ten years, it's amazing that Blair goes into retirement still a "could have been".

Blair was definitely an extraordinarily talented politician.

My big regret - as someone who wants to see a society where we have greater equality of wealth and power - is that he wasn't really on my side.
