I think the British elections turned out very well. Labour stays in charge, the Liberal Democrats took a small step forward, and the Conservatives continue their journey to irrelevancy. Blair was properly chastised for his role in the Iraq war, but the voters, to a certain extant, maintained their trust with Labour's record on other issues. One thing I had not considered was the number of anti-Blair rebels that would remain in Parliament. Apparently enough of them survived to make things very difficult for Blair if continues his quest to be Bush's dog. We may have to add a Blair Deathwatch to the Delay Deathwatch.
