Michael Heseltine - Political managers - Mapping the 'Which Blair?' Project - The Government has long wanted the defence sector to consolidate with Europe while providing little means for it to do so. It is now time to put or shut up.
It is hard to identify the real Tony Blair. The prime minister has a tendency to urge one thing on others while doing something different himself - democratising the Lords but centralising the Government; reducing access to selective schools but sending his children to one; calling for more efficient industry but failing to deliver his 'joined-up' government.
