L’addio di Tony Blair

   “I know I look a lot older, that’s what being leader of the Labour Party does to you. Actually, looking around, some of you look a lot older. That’s what having me as leader of the Labour Party does to you.” “This terrorism is not our fault, we didn’t cause it. It’s not the consequence of foreign policy, it’s an attack on our way of life.” “But above all else, I want to thank the British people – not just for the honour of being Prime Minister but for the journey of progress we have travelled together.” “If we retreat now, hand Iraq over to al Qaida and sectarian death squads and Afghanistan back to al Qaida and the Taliban, we won’t be safer, we will be committing a craven act of surrender that will put our future security in the deepest peril.” “Yes, it’s hard sometimes to be America’s strongest ally.Yes, Europe can be a political headache for a proud sovereign nation like Britain. But believe me there are no half-hearted allies of America today and no semi-detached partners in Europe.” “The most common phrase uttered to me is not ’I hate you’ or ’I like you’ but ’I would not have your job for all the world’. The British people will, sometimes, forgive a wrong decision. They won’t forgive not deciding.” “Whatever you do, I’m always with you head and heart. You’ve given me all I have ever achieved and all that we’ve achieved together for the country. Next year I won’t be making this speech but in the years to come wherever I am, whatever I do, I’m with you. Wishing you well, wanting you to win.” Dopo Margareth Thatcher e Winston Churchill, l’Inghilterra consegna alla storia un altro grande leader. Nonostante tutte le divergenze, grazie Tony.
