ABSTRACT
In this article the author reflects on the ten years in government of prime minister Tony Blair, in light of his September 2006 announcement that he plans to resign his office sometime in 2007 in favor of finance minister Gordon Brown. Although elected as "new" Labor, that is, business-friendly and more centrist, the author argues that the Blair government had much in common with the more socialist leaning Labor Party of the post-World War Two years.
