For this, as well as for his handling of the economic crisis I think that history will be sig [...]

    2. Many years ago I was at a conference in London, England and had an opportunity to hear a speech given by Special Peace Envoy (then Prime Minister of Great Britain, Tony Blair. I am not a particular fan of his, however, I do recognise that, for good or ill, he is a world name. Therefore, I took the chance to hear his speech. He is an outstanding orator. Therefore, now that I am out of the rat race and live quietly in a little village, I noticed with some interest that Mr Blair’s successor in of [...]

    3. It's a nice idea and I should have enjoyed it, but I didn't. I don't think I'm erudite enough. Gave up about a third of the way in.It had a massive introduction - nearly 50 pages, so it's not like I didn't know what I couldn't be bothered to read.What put me off? It sounded like a dull teacher had written it. Loads of rhetorical questions, some a whole paragraph long. The answers were prefaced by phrases like: As we will see in later chapters for reasons we exploreere is, of course.
