It should be a doozy... They say that Blairs political career rides on his performance and they also say the opposition parties are loaded with ammo and are ready to pounce.

3. Could the government fall?
Is this vote of non-confidence material? Or is resignation more in order?

6. Nah, even if they got rid of Blair (highly unlikely) the Govt would stand.

4. Will it be on C-Span?
Any details on time and what channel will be carrying it? I love watching the Brits. I wish * had to answer before the Congress instead of spouting messianic pap to the Amish.
:eyes:

5. I still remember...on Charlie Rose, two British "pundits" saying that
none of this stuff on Iraq was ever going to touch Blair...it would just blow over. (this was last year, as the truth started seeping out).

12. I doubt much will happen.
Until Labour wakes up and realizes what a useless wanker Blair is, he'll stay in power. Then in the next election, they'll take a pounding (especially if Chimpy is still pResident).
