Prime Minister Blair. If I hear/read those words once more I think I will scream. He is not Prime Minister Blair. PM is his job not his title. If he were a baker or a newsagent he wouldn't be known as Baker Blair, or Newsagent Blair, so why do some people insist on giving him a presidential style title. (OK we all know he would probably like one, but he doesn't have one.)
He is not the head of state, he is the (current) leader of the Labour party and due to the success of said party in recent general elections, he is the PM. When he steps down as leader, the Labour party will still be in power because the British public did not vote for Prime Minister Blair, but a significant number did vote Labour.
Oh, I feel so much better now :-)
