Tony Blair Can't Win

A British reporter from America explains why Britons will vote for a guy named 'Brown' - so Blair can't lose.

Mark my words: Tony Blair won't be re-elected Thursday. However, he will remain in office.

That's because Brits don't vote for their Prime Minister. They've got a "parliamentary" system there in the Mother Country. And the difference between democracy and parliamentary rule makes all the difference. It is the only reason why Blair will keep his job - at least for a few months.

This is an interesting article about British poltics. And - it appears from this statment that Britions are not happy with Tony Blair" "Blair looks longingly at America, land of the hard-charging capitalist cowboy, of entrepreneurs with big-box retail discount stores, Silicon Valley start-ups and Asian out-sourcing. Blair doesn't want to be Prime Minister. He wants to be governor in London of America's 51st state".

I can't wait to see what will happen next..
