Is it 1812 all over again ?

Two and a half thousand Post Offices to close and half the country's A & E units set for closure too. is Tony Blair running a scorched earth policy, closing as much as he can, leaving nothing for Gordon brown to run ?

It's like the Russian's withdrawal from Moscow and St Petersberg in 1812, leaving nothing for the victorious French to feast on and leading to their eventual defeat.

The alternative view is that Blair is making all these unpopular decisions now so that Gordon can come in to power and say "Nothing to do with me gov, honest, it was that other fella !"

I think you are right in highlighting that Blair seems to be making the difficult decisions now rather than leaving them for Gordon.

Perhaps these closures should be added to his legacy ?
