Blair braced for TV debate

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

The public is to challenge Tony Blair on the country’s key political issues during a gloves-off televised debate.

This is what my long conversation last week alluded to: I was asked to take part in this programme. Unfortunately (or, perhaps, fortunately for the PM), things didn’t work out, and so I don’t feature. But it should be worth watching nonetheless – you never know, it might include Mr Blair’s Iraq homologue of Mrs Thatcher’s “Nationwide” moment about the sinking of the Belgrano. Five, 7pm.

This 351st post was filed under: Election 2005.
