BIOGRAPHY

Tony Blair was bornon 6 May 1953 in Edinburgh, British, is Prime Minister of Britain. Tony Blair (Anthony Charles Lynton Blair) was one of the youngest and the longest serving Prime Ministers of Britain, belonging to the Labour Party. Like many of his predecessors, Blair’s tenure as a Prime Minister was predominant with controversies and during his tenure, he was even accused of war crimes. He rebuked the conventional style of politics followed by his party and under his leadership his party came to be known as the ‘New Labour Party’. He implemented several socio-economic reforms to alleviate poverty and bring down unemployment, while focusing on elevating the living standards of people. He also showed great concern for environmental hazards, such as global warming, which his predecessors had overlooked. However, his decision to lead Britain to several wars, especially the ‘War on Terror’ declared by the U.S., put him at odds with his party as well as his countrymen. He was often criticized for extending unconditional support to the invasions carried out in the Middle East by the US. Both, his party members and the public were enraged by his decision to engage England in wars, as it, according to them, not only violated human rights and disrupted peace, but also exhausted a substantial amount of Britain’s financial reserves.
