Tony Blair defends his foreign policies in a speech in Plymouth today. The BBC reports:
Tony Blair has said his foreign policy is "controversial" but his approach of military intervention must continue after he has stepped down. In a major speech, he said the "war on terror" may last a generation but to retreat would be a "catastrophe". And Britain must be ready to fight wars as well as keep the peace.
I will be on BBC News 24 at 9.00pm this evening to explain the background to the PM's thinking on foreign policy, and say what I thought of the speech.
