Big day for Labour

Being in opposition means Labour has no power other than to influence political debate. That means today is the start of Labour being important for a few weeks. Tony Blair's book id out today, the leadership ballot papers are being sent out with those to choose Labour's next candidate for London Mayor.

I'm excited about reading Blair's book. The first extracts were released on the book's website last night. These have been pored over in this morning's breakfast shows and newspapers. Is any of it surprising? Probably not, we all know Blair and Brown didn't get on. The heavy media coverage shows that Blair is still big news. it also shows that with a good leader Labour can be important again.
