Tony Blair (1953-) is a former British Prime Minister, credited with repositioning the Labour Party in the latter end of the 20th century, leading to one of the biggest landslide election victories in British history in 1997. Throughout his political career, he contributed articles to newspapers, including The Times, both before and during his time as Prime Minister. Despite positive work on peace in Northern Ireland, his popularity declined after his support for the War on Terror following the 9/11 attacks, especially after it emerged he had exaggerated information to justify the decision. After the cash for favours scandal, he resigned in July 2007.
