WHAT HE WOULDN'T GIVE TO BE BLAIR:

Bardhan warns PM over friendship with US (Rediff, September 06, 2007)

The Communist Party of India on Wednesday cautioned Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying the United Progressive Alliance government's "friendship with USA could spell doom for him and his regime."

"Manmohan Singh should learn a lesson from former UK prime minister Tony Blair who was voted out of the office for his friendship with George Bush," said CPI general secretary A B Bardhan.


Re-elected twice and handing off power to your closest ally who's cruising towards re-election seems a price most political leaders would accept.
