The ghost of Blair

Tony Blair has published his memoirs, entitled 'A Journey'.

The former prime minister's book, published on Wednesday, contains contentious views on Iraq, his relationship with Gordon Brown, and, crucially, why he thinks Labour lost the general election - claiming it did so because it abandoned the 'third way' politics of New Labour.

The news has potentially dramatic relevance for the leadership election, with David Miliband widely seen as the standard bearer of Blairism among the candidates, although he has vociferously denied this.
