Tony Blair has finally gone. Roll on 2008 when Dubya goes too. Maybe then we will have peace seeking world leaders. But even as I think it, I'm aware of my idealism and, even more concerning, the pronouncements from Britain's new PM, Gordon Brown are not encouraging so far. A Scot trying to prove himself wholly British, selling his Scottish Presbyterian soul for acceptance in middle England, saying yes to Trident and no to nuclear disarmament. Very early days but the signs are not good.
