A former well-wisher turns on Blair. This is a somewhat personal account of one man's history with Tony Blair, from 1987 when he was a barely-known young MP to his current incarnation as the passionate defender of his controversial policies. John Lanchester, literary critic and editor, believes that the problem with Margaret Thatcher is that she always had to be Right, and Blair's similar problem is that he always has to be Good.

"The key issue for Blair seems to be his own sincerity. He is desperate to convince us that he believes in the rightness of his actions. This has been a faultline in his personality from the very beginning."
