A long ******* journey

I’m going to have to break ‘The Journey’. I’ve been reading Tony Blair’s autobiography for quite a while now, and I’m still less than halfway through. The rise and faltering of New Labour was an interesting period of recent British history, and the testament of the man who was at its heart will no doubt be a source document for future students of the era. It should be fascinating for anyone who’s as interested in politics as I am: it should be but it isn’t. Our former prime minister may be a man of many skills, but  story-telling isn’t one of them. It wouldn’t be so bad if it had been well edited, but it hasn’t been. Next time I see my bro-in-law, I’m going to have to apologise for giving it to him for his birthday. To put it in perspective, I’m currently listening to The Essential Leonard Cohen fora bit of light relief.
