Tony Blair on the way out?

These are not the best of times for Tony Blair. He has reshuffled his cabinet but there is a growing movement within the Labor Party calling for him to step down.

In the meantime things are not going well for the Brits in Iraq. An article in today's Independent (UK) describes how the troops in Basra are in virtual lockdown as a result of the shooting down of a helicopter last week. Five British soldiers lost their lives.

I would not be surprised to see a new Prime Minister by the end of this year.
