The Unfulfilled Prime Minister: Tony Blair's Quest for a Legacy by Peter Riddell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


On that sunny Friday morning back in May 1997 Tony Blair promised so much, but seven years later his premiership seems a huge disappointment. Why and how has he failed to deliver on the optimism of his early months? Peter Riddell goes behind the jibes about a presidential prime minister, control-freakery, the Third Way and 'phoney Tony' to anatomise why in the public services performance has signally failed to live up to expectations and the war against Iraq has left the premier embattled and mistrusted, even by many on his own side. An incisive and informed analysis of political unfulfilment.
