He has found himself under a fair amount of criticism for the going on a round the world farewell tour, a la the Rolling Stones. As he isn't going to be the PM in for very much longer one has to question the reason for the tour, I could understand if Gordon Brown spent the time building international relationships while Blair carried on as PM but doing things the other way around makes no sense to me.
It all looks rather like a giant ego trip for the greatest political showman on earth.
Apparently statements like the one above makes me cynical. In an act of great comedic timing Tony Blair has chosen to attack critics of his farewell world tour while being "crowned" as a Paramount Chief in Sierra Leone.
Hardly anything to do with his huge ego at all! Not a jot of it! Perish the thought! Silly me!
