A timely reminder…

A portrait of Tony Blair, painted in his final few months as prime minister, has been unveiled in Westminster. The portrait will now hang in Portcullis House alongside other top politicians and former PM’s including Thatcher and Churchill. I am intrigued by the portrait as it gives the impression of power and burden with concern clearly etched on Blair’s face. The cheshire cat grin that once characterised Blair seems a distant memory and is replaced by a formal frown as the affairs of state continue to burden his mind. Aside from this given the current state of political affairs the unveiling comes as a timely reminder of just what we’ve lost…
