Blair will step down 'sooner rather than later'

I’ve been thinking the same thing the last few days. A colleague of mine thinks Blair will stay for a good while if he gets a decent majority but I can’t see that happening. If I was a betting man I’d lay money on Labour getting no more than a 60 seat majority and Blair going (or being got rid of) within the first six months.

“Robin Cook has predicted Tony Blair will stand down as Labour leader to make way for Gordon Brown "sooner rather than later" if Labour wins a third term. Former foreign secretary Cook, who has been tipped for a return to the Cabinet if Brown does become prime minister, said the chancellor's new central role in the election campaign would have "profound political consequences".” Link
