I have a prediction: Two of the above three leaders will be gone inside three months. Bush, Blair, Howard. Take your pick who will be the last man standing, but he could be american, and he could be one of the few george’s on this planet to spell his name will a w.
The Westminster system of politics allows for some feedback into who is the “leader” of the country; they must be able to command a majority support inside their own party. For Blair, this means Labour, and Howard works under a conservative coalition. This means Blair and Howard are subject to a meaningful vote of non-confidence at any time.
And this time could be soon. To use their dastardly language, the “tipping point” of discontent is fast approaching.
