We are in the final days of Tony Blair. And good riddance to bad rubbish.

Few could imagine that his Labour government – swept to victory in 1997 promising a “more caring Britain” and an “ethical foreign policy” – would increase inequality between the rich and poor, plunge Iraq and Afghanistan into bloody chaos, and become the darling of the extreme right wing cabal in the US.

In this special issue, Socialist Worker contributors give their damning verdict on Blair, his policies and his appalling legacy.
