Tony Blair on Trial


A new drama to be screened on British television follows what might happen when Blair resigns as Prime Minister – currently a date somewhere between January 2007 and October 2007 but possibly extended into 2008.

The drama shows signs of having received information from within Westminster and from within the Labour Party. The plot follows Blair’s resignation, move from Downing Street and trial for war crimes. A very convincing legal basis for the trial is set out and some critics have said they see this as Faust played in Twenty First Century politics. Others have seen much of MacBeth in the drama.

The script comes from the team who wrote a drama based on the Prescot scandal.
