Gordon Brown, Chancellor of the Exchequer, has been nominated as successor of Mr Blair.
Mr Blair and his chancellor are known to have redefined labour’s philosophy to make it friendlier to market economy and globalisation without losing its socialistic underpinning.
But critics have accused the two of obliterating the differences between the Labour and Conservative philosophies.
Despite Blair’s successes on the economic front and on health and education sectors, he lost the confidence of his party and perhaps a good part of the nation when he refused to de-link his foreign policy from that of President Bush’s.
Here are some questions
1) Is Blair’s resignation a result of mounting pressure on him vis-à-vis Iraq war?
2) Will Mr Brown bring any change in the incumbent foreign policy of UK especially regarding Iraq?
3) If not, then what would be the mode of action of the British MP`s
