Tony Blair

Future war criminal, Tony Blair, with the Fettes College basketball team
Former Prime Minister of England Tony Blair graduated from Fettes College in Edinburgh before moving on to Oxford and finally to St. John's College where he studied law. As a student, Blair enjoyed music. He sang and played guitar in a rock band called Ugly Rumors.

Blair without the infamous wanking gesture... (we're a family blog)
In 1983, Blair was elected to Parliament as a member of the Labour Party. In 1997 he was elected as Prime Minister, a post he would hold for a decade.

"Cool Britannia" in waiting (1986)
During a stop in Ireland on Blair's book tour (for his autobiography A Journey) in 2010, protesters through eggs and shoes at him because of his role in the Iraq War (they missed). In his memoir, Blair continues his poodle-esque admiration of George W. Bush by describing his partner in preemption as a "true idealist" who exhibited "genuine political courage [and] sincerely believed in spreading freedom and democracy." The U.S. president rewarded Blair for his naive allegiance with one of his patented "charming" nicknames: "Landslide" (certainly better than Vladimir Putin's handle, "Pootie Toot" and "Ostrich Legs.").
