Blair's Speech

Politahoplic didn't see Blair's speech; but in cold print it looks dreadful. It's all in the perforance; at which Blair is indisputably a grandmaster. He got the business of praising Brown ("remarkable") over with as swiftly as possible. The only Cabinet Minister he name-checked was John Reid (is Alan Johnson's star waning so soon?). Bouyed-up by the reception he got he seems determined to stay-on until next summer. This morning's Guardian reports, however, that the parts of the speech denying any link between increased terrorism and the Iraqi war were recieved with stony silence.
