Tony Blair's Labour Party Takes a Pasting

Early returns from local council elections in Great Britain are showing a high level of disapproval for Tony Blair over his coziness with George W. Bush. (These are local government elections, like town councils, and not parliamentary elections, which could actually throw Blair out of power.)

"Labour was down 159 seats; the main opposition Conservative Party had gained 77 seats; and Britain's third largest party, the Liberal Democrats -- which staked its campaign heavily on it being the only major party to oppose the war -- gained 68 seats."

Tony Blair's gonna end up as collateral damage in Bush's War. More's the pity.
