Saturday, 9th November, 1pm – ‘Heroes or Villains? The Blair Government Reconsidered’ with Jon Davis & John Rentoul

Will he be remembered for bringing peace to Northern Ireland, reviving public services and promoting equality; or for Iraq, and paving the way for Jeremy Corbyn and Brexit? Will he be praised for modernising the machinery of government, or condemned for degrading politics with spin?
