By way of a farewell tribute to a great Prime Minister, here's a quick reminder of Tony Blair's legacy to the nation.
1. Northern Ireland peace process. It was John Major who started that.
2. Scottish and Welsh devolution. That was John Smith's idea, and Blair implemented it only with extreme reluctance.
3. The minimum wage. That was Keir Hardie's, and Blair fought it tooth and nail.
4. Low unemployment, low interest rates, low inflation. That will be thanks to Gordon Brown, then.
5. Three Labour election victories. The first one a donkey could have won. The third would have been a bigger victory without him.
6. Restoration of London-wide government. Better not let that dangerous Ken Livingstone anywhere near it though.
7. Tackling inequality. Except that he didn't - it got wider.
8. Saving the NHS. Except that he didn't - scores of health trusts ended up in the red.
9. "Education, education, education." Was that really once what New Labour was supposed to be about?
10. Spin, Iraq, cash for honours, politicisation of the civil service, sofa-style government, "Cool Brittania," the Millennium Dome, the "Third Way," and spending his last two years in office obsessing about what he would be remembered for.
Cruel? Maybe. But someone has to balance out all this absurd memorialising that's going on.
May 11 update: This post seems to have polarised opinion in the blogosphere somewhat. Justin from Chicken Yogurt liked it, which is a big compliment in itself, but Paulie from Never Trust a Hippy was rather less impressed.
