What will Blair do next?

Text settings

The reports this morning that Tony Blair might step down as an MP as soon as he quits as PM raise the question of what will Blair do next. (The denial from Downing Street, which is about timing not substance, doesn’t suggest that Blair is planning to become a Ted Heath-style fixture in the Commons.)

We’re already pretty certain that there’ll be some kind of Blair foundation, although the address blairfoundation.com has already been taken by a US evangelical with missionary zeal (insert your own joke here.) But what cause will Blair’s foundation adopt?

Gore’s already doing climate change and Clinton Aids. This means that Blair will probably take up Africa
